Settled on the Hobby Farm

The kids have been voluteering every day that the petting farm is open (6 days a week), so camping here made sense.  We set up our largest tent and the Hamilton’s are letting us use their spare 5th wheel for a more comfy home base.

5th wheel permanently settled here.

Keeping things to a minimum, keeping life simplified….it’s not always easy but I find that it keeps my whole life simple.  I spend more time outside…we all do.  Housework is almost none existent when camping.  Sweeping takes 1 minute.  Dishes aren’t always used; hands work well for a lot of things.  At the end of the day we often sit around a campfire, talking.

It's not a farm without hay bales, is it?

Kids have learned to care for horses/donkeys, goats, chickens & other fowl, pigs and rabbits.  Mitch is driving the Rhino, a quad and Ray’s stick-shift pickup truck.  Chores are done in the morning and evening and when the farm is open the kids work to keep things running smoothly.  Maret has learned to run the till.  All of them are involved in Customer Service.  We clean up messes, keep the bathroom in running order, blow up balloons and decorate for parties.  Whatever needs to be done we do….and hopefully with a good attitude.

    • Yummy dinner it was, thanks Shelly. And you and Chris are absolutely such kind, big-hearted people. We can’t Thank You Enough or do enough for you to show how much we appreciate your kindness and friendship. Your family has just multiplied exponentially!
