Homestead, Homeschooling Mom of 3

I always find the hardest thing to write about is me, so I will start at the beginning. I grew up in a suburb of NYC and did not do things like gardening, raising chickens for food or even experience Homeschooling, so how did I end up here?

It was a long journey that started when my oldest was a baby (he is an almost teenage now smdh) and we decided that we were going to raise him in such a way that used cloth diapers and homemade baby food. As the years went by and the kids kept coming we got to a point that we were ready for more room. So the search began, I wanted a home where I could make a homestead and my husband was just happy finding a place that had more space.

We are now on almost 10 acres and are working hard on trying to become as self sufficient as possible. Each year we add to what we are learning and trying whether it be an animal we are raising or a food we are trying to grow. I hope to use this blog to show others what our adventures look like and maybe help you begin your own.
