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!

L'il Bunks First Post


All of us are here but Tracy who is not in this picture. We will try to post a group picture of the Bunker Children very soon. There is only one goat in this picture and that is Helen the blind goat.

We are:

Tracy - 13 years
Jennifer - 9 years
Robert - 7 years
Sarah Grace - 3 years.

Our favorite things to do are: sing Hymns on Sunday afternoons, read books, explore our new land, and play with our pets. We have 2 forts and 3 cats (Rocky, Belle, and Samuel). We have 9 pet chickens (Pip, goldie, Stonewall, Alice, Sir, Silly, Casper, Stormie, and Mrs. Haney) and a lot more chickens who aren't pets.

Our favorite books are:

Robert - Huckleberry Finn, White Fang
Jennifer - Elsie Dinsmore, Call of the Wild
Tracy - Tom Sawyer

We are currently reading:

Robert - Huckleberry Finn
Jennifer - Journey to the Center of the Earth
Tracy - Little House on Rocky Ridge

We are reading "Raggedy Ann in Cookie Land" to our 3 year old sister Sarah Grace. She is smart and asks questions about the book.

We hope to include some pictures of our forts and hideouts sometime soon.

Well, over and out.

The Bunker Children

You should check out Charlotte's Web or Where The Red Fern Grows. They are both excellent books as well.

You all forgot to mention Sarah's pet - the blind Boer goat named Helen. Good first post. Looking forward to more in the future.

Great post guys! I would LOVE to see pictures of your hideouts. :) When I was younger, my favorite books were Harriet the Spy (I probably re-read that book 20 times!), The Boxcar Children books, Hachet, and the Sign of the Beaver. Keep up the good work.

Hello Tracey, Jennifer, Robert and Sarah Grace
I love making huts and hideouts and forts also! My sister and I live in New Zealand and we are homeschooled and have church at home as well. I am 9 years old and my sister is 7. I have 3 Maltese dogs, 1 cat, 18 chickens and 8 sheep and we have two little 6 wk old puppies at the moment who we love to play with.
Thank you for starting this blog and we are going to look forward to reading all about what you've been up to.

Hey guys, where are your forts, maybe we can build a huge one when I get there. I'm reading to Job Pooh's pumpkin and I'm reading My fun with words. I like your blog and how is Gary the goose. Also how have you been doing, I can't wait to see you guys. My brothers are looking forward to moving to Texas. I miss you and see all of you soon. God be with you, Noah Ante

Nice job L'il Bunks. Sounds like y'all are reading some awesome classics. Jennifer-My daughter's favorite book is Journey to the Center of the Earth. She read it the first time when she was about your age. She's seen the movie about a dozen times and has her own hardback copy of the book. I always liked the Tom Sawyer and Huck Finn stories too.

Enjoying reading is such a blessing. It opens up many new worlds to you.

I look forward to reading more of your posts.

3 forts! Are you ever lucky. I can't wait to see them, forts when you're a kid are the best.

You should definitly read Red Fern. Do any of you help with the culling of the animals or cleaning of them. I'm sure you all know how blessed you are to be doing what you do, my 3 children are very excited to hear about what you do down there.
