My husband, Dan, and I have wanted acreage since we met, but up until last year we could never find a property we could afford.
Last year we were blessed to find a piece of property that’s nearly 5 acres, with a newer single-wide trailer on it. Far from perfect, but the price was amazing, so we jumped on it!
We brought our 3 kids, Miss Magoo (7), Little Man (5), and Baby Girl (3) to our new home, and they’ve settled into country life. They reminisce about how wonderful our previous big house was and think they want to move back, but they spend their days running or riding bikes around the pasture, catching bugs, digging in the dirt, and playing make believe. We know that they really wouldn’t love moving back, they just think they would!
The past 2 years have been crazy and busy but good for us. We moved twice, did a lot of work on 3 houses, and started work on a shop, all while homeschooling.
This blog is dedicated to our journey, as we leave behind the city ways, and learn to adapt and embrace our new country life. Come join us!
