Faith Family and Feathers

Fun on the farm with faith and family

There’s No Place Like Home.

Well we made it back from our trip to visit family in Colorado.  I really thought I’d have plenty of time to post a few blogs along the way but I was busy visiting with family every waking moment.  I’m not complaining at all.  Some of these relatives I only get to see once a year so I enjoy taking every available minute to visit with them. 

We didn’t do anything terribly exciting, mostly we just hung around mom’s house and visited, played games, cooked, ate and watched movies.  But we did take some time to visit a museum and the Denver Zoo.  Here’s a few random pictures from the zoo.  Our week in Colorado flew by and it was soon time to head home.  The route we chose to drive home took us right into Hot Springs SD.  This is a town in the Black Hills of SD where a hot spring runs through.  The water is literally in the 90 degrees year round!  Anyway, in Hot Springs is the mammoth Site.  In the late 1970’s excavators uncovered some old bones.  They stopped their worked until the bones could be identified and they turned out to be prehistoric mammoth bones.  Since then they have built a building over the site and every year they excavate more and more mammoth bones and give tours to the public. To date they figure the have found the remains of over 50 mammoths!  Quite amazing!  After viewing the site my son has aspirations of digging with their crew one day.  Here are a few random pictures we took at this site. 

The mountains of Colorado are breathtaking, and the company is amazing,  but there really is “no pace like home”.  It’s good to be back.

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
