We are on a roll for moving once a year for the past 4 years.
Did you ever hear of musical chairs? How about musical Houses? Musical chairs is a game where the music plays and everyone walks around a bunch of chairs. When the music stops you all sit down in a different spot. Well, we play Musical Houses! We just recently moved back to the old homestead that we actually lived in 2 other times on Cane Creek.
It was a sudden move. Our barn house was uninsurable and according to the insurance companies, not fit to live in. How were we to know unless we gave it our best shot? BUT we made the most of it. It was small and dark, creaky and cobbled together, but we used it to its full potential! I thought it was cute the way Mark fixed it up, but when the kids would go upstairs the whole barn would shake, LOL! We could not sell it to make a profit because it was not worth much, but the buyer is letting us take out the materials which is a big help and we are just renting this homestead now.
We still get to keep our garden over there which is nice! It was a nice dream to have that place and to make it our own, but sometimes life takes turns and you have to make sure your family is in a safe place. I am very happy to be back to the old farm! It was the one from our first Homesteading for Beginners DVD!
We have plenty of space. Each of the kids have their own room, there is plenty of room to have company again! And I have a music room for the kids to practice, and art studio room, and even a guest room!!!
Oh and as far as the dream to have a camp...Well, there is a camp down the road that can be rented and I hope to host a homestead themed shindig this spring as soon as I can get things organized and people to help!
God is always faithful and we are excited about this new chapter in our lives!
