Growing Up Agrarian

We are four Christian, homechurched, homeschooled, homesteading, agrarian children growing up in Central Texas on a Ranch. We are Tracy,(15) Jennifer,(10) Robert,(9) and Sarah(5) Bunker. We also have one more brother, Thomas Shepard Bunker, who is in the courts of glory. We like to read books, raise animals, and play on the land. Tracy will be writing about the stuff we do. We hope you enjoy our Adventures!

Another Day

(This post was written on Friday)

A yummy breakfast of oatmeal and bacon started our day today. We had a busy morning preparing for the sabbath. We have to clean the motorhome (where we sleep), the porch, the outhouse, the dish table and the decks. We have to keep them clean and make sure the animals all have water.

We are getting excited to finish the root cellar. The men are close to finishing it and Daddy said we are going to have an icehouse down there.

Robert found some kind of animal skull in the woods behind the chicken coops. We think it is a raccoon skull. It has two big front teeth like a cat.

One of the Sifford's cows named Rosa had a pretty calf. She is chocolate brown and white. Her name is Rosalinda. She looks a lot like a fawn. She gets close enough to let us touch her, but then she runs away. It has been getting colder here lately. It has been in the low thirties at night.

Thanks for the comments on the posts because we like to read them all together. Yes we do help kill and clean the animals. We enjoy it too. Daddy said here pretty soon we will kill some of our unneeded roosters. Yum!

Well, that is all for now!

Did you figure out what that skull was for sure? My sister & I used to decorate our room w/ the bones we found at an abandoned slaughterhouse. We tried to paint them up to look Indian-ish. A skull is much cooler than a cow jaw though, the skulls had already all been taken by the time we were old enough to walk the yard, so jawbones & vertebrate were all we found.
