A picture tour of the last few days and travel to Montana.

Retirement party:


All of us

“Attention to orders!”


Kathryn and mommy

Travelling, including the night before with vehicles staged and ready:

Navigator and co-pilot, Faith.

We had to stay in places that accommodate livestock. This was Lubbock, Texas.

Fuel up in Raton, New Mexico.

Blowout number one.

Blowout number two.

And the first couple of weeks. Fencing in several acres for the horses. Building a chicken/duck coop. Purchasing a restored 1956 Allis Chalmers WD45 tractor. Scenes from around the place.

First morning stretch after run.

Fence posts pounded in for pasture.

This is the view from my deck every night.

“New” tractor.

Icon corner

Assembly/install of the new wood burning stove.

Finished chicken run around coop.

There is still so much more to do before the first freeze. There were two blow outs on the trailer. The movers basically dumped all our stuff down in the breezeway of the barndominium. Installing the wood burning stove was weird. It seems like we work 24/7 to get organized and de-cluttered and never get anywhere. The kids have already met their homeschool co-op. Our new church family brought us food before we even met them.

We are safe and sound. I still can’t believe I live here now.
