Faith Family and Feathers

Fun on the farm with faith and family

Hometown Parade

Leave a comment

Yesterday was “Jamboree Days” in our small town here in South Dakota.  It’s a day whear we all slow down sit on the curb to watch a parade and gather in the park for picnic food and games.  It’s a great small town event and so much fun to connect to the community in this way.  Here are a few pics I took and I wanted to share with you.

Here comes the local vonlonteer fire department.

I love the horses!  Some day I hope to have my own.

This is not a small child,  It is a VERY large dog!  A great dane!

A float of the USS South Dakota.  (Yes even South Dakota gets a boat named after it)

My son on the mechanical bull.  A rodeo man he is not.  He got bucked off every time.

I hope you all have a hometown parade of your own to enjoy!

Hi everyone. My name is Brenda. I am 41 and live in South Dakota with my 4 children (19, 17, 12 boys & 6 finally a girl!) and my husband. We have been married for 20 years and lived in the country for the last 16 years. My husband owns a road contrating business and I quit my job as an accountant 10 years ago to manage the bookkeeping side of his business and to spend more time with my family. We raise chickens and turkeys and just added ducks, bunnies and nubian milk goats (I love them!) the kids, the bunnies will be in (or near) their baskets on Easter morning.) I like about anything that makes us more self sufficient. I beliving in making as much of my families food from scratch as possible to control what goes into it. I try to reuse things as much a possible to reduce waste. With my last child I discovered the ease of cloth diapers and fell in love. I made all of her diapers and now give cloth diapers to all my friends having babies. I like crafting in general. Sewing, crochet, needle point, and recently I learned the art of soap making (love it). My husband and I both enjoy home improvement and remodeling. HGTV is my favorite TV station. I keep a nice size garden and like to freeze and can good things to enjoy all winter long. This year I'm planting sugar beets and will try to make my own sugar (without all the chemicles). My husband is a hunter so we enjoy making jerkey from the venison he gets. I'm active in our community by helping in the school and leading Bible study at church. I just love people and love to talk. I hope you enjoy this site and find many great tidbits related to faith, family or feathers. God Bless, Brenda
