A Week of Homestead Photos August 16th - 22nd




Many blogs out there only show you the "glamours" side of life. Well, this ain't one of those! I keep it real, from the beautiful to the "OMG" moments of life.... This week we were canning, camping, going to the fair, and dealing with the REAL moments of life. There is no photo shopping, accent lighting, or fair godmothers here.... Just our daily life in full color! I hope you enjoy these photos as much as I did living them.....


We kicked off the week by making and canning tomato sauce.

Of course we had to go visit the county fair and chat up the goats.

I love a cool old barn and a sassy looking cow any day.

Betty's babies are now as big as she is!

10 ducks, one pool, 24 hours, hot humid weather..... cesspool. Ugh!!!
The truly glamorous side of homesteading... LOL

Hubby and I got away for a night of camping with NO country kids!!!

What a beautiful sunset.....

Day two of camping, the country kids showed
up for some quality fishing time with dad.

Of course no week is complete without a total disaster.... Heidi the Homestead Hound
(with help from the littlest country kid) destroyed the do-it-yourself volcano kit
*smack forehead*

    1. I think more folks need to be honest about what goes on in life and that not every moment is picture perfect. We are all real folks and have a responsibility to our reader to let them know we are normal just like them :)
