Book 1: Homestead Friends: Welcome Home Sweet Harley!
Book 2: Homestead Friends: Leaping Leah's Big Surprise!
Several years ago, this city girl, along with my beloved family, decided to stop reading about a simple lifestyle, and instead, try it out for ourselves. We sold our beautiful home with a manicured lawn, concrete sidewalks, a button to turn on the heat or electricity for lighting and bought 60 acres in the middle of a forest, surrounded by mountains and streams. We live off the grid in a small home with heat provided by a wood stove and light provided by candle.
Early on we realized the 'simple life' is not simple at all – in fact, it is hard work. We've managed to add gardens, fruit and nut trees, several outbuildings, a large supply of firewood, and of course our BELOVED animals featured in the Homestead Friends Series.
We all agree, homesteading is the perfect addition to homeschooling and has taught us many lessons. Having never had pets as children, the best part of homesteading is learning about the animals and their personalities and the adventure they add to our daily lives.
Life on a Homestead is an adventure. But there is nothing like 'NEW' life on the Homestead.
Join the fun and meet the Homestead Friends!
