Faith Family and Feathers

Fun on the farm with faith and family

School starts!

For quite some time the stores have had the school supplies and back to school clothes in stock.  We’ve counted out pencils, searched for just the right color of book cover and stocked up on notebook paper.  We’ve found the cutest outfit For Ali and the perfect pair of shoes to go with it, and lets not forget the coolest T-shirts out there for Steve and just the right skate board shoes for the season.  Now it is time to put all of that prep into action because school starts next week!  I don’t know about you, but I’m ready.  The kids are board and have gone to picking on each other as their favorite pass time (their second favorite is tattleing).  I love my kids and enjoy them a lot, but this constant picking can wear on even the calmest  of nerve.  My daughter is very excited to get back to school but my middle school son is less than thrilled.  We had a great summer but I look forward to he routine that school brings into our house.  I hope you too had a great summer and are looking ahead to a fine fall season.

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
