Why I Love

Do I need ocean front property when I can hear the wind blowing through a wheat field? You never get the meaning of a “sea of grass” until you can hear it. Its why I love it here.

The backyard view

I love the view, no buildings or traffic. Just the beauty of a clean fresh landscape.

I love the innovation. People are constantly using what we already have to make life better.

I love the terrifying yet beautiful weather.

Play in the water, get exercise, and water the grass multi-tasking at its finest

I love the freedom to raise my kids in that “old fashioned” way. Work then play is our way. There is more self esteem in a job well done then having it all handed to you.

There is pride in having a reason to get up. My kids don’t sleep until noon.

Beautiful DD

They are still beautiful and accomplished. They don’t suffer from living a life of farm kids. One day they will be proud they don’t spend all day at the pool like the “city kids,” I know I was.

HOT!

We are working on keeping cool. Thank God for AC!

Pigs

Our animals need about constant care in this heat. Did you know pigs don’t sweat? That’s why they need mud, the water evaporates much like sweat on our skin.

We garden in the morning during the cool hours, which means early mornings for these farm kids. I make it up to them, don’t worry.
