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!

Icy Cold Day

Hello again! This morning (Sabbath) Jennifer and Tracy went to the H&H Diner with Daddy for breakfast. Jennifer had two pancakes with butter and syrup and Tracy had French toast with powdered sugar, syrup and ham. Robert and Sarah had Malt-O-Meal and bacon at home with Mommy.

It is VERY cold here and everything has ice on it. Daddy said it was 29 degrees when he woke up. Jennifer slipped off the step to the motorhome twice because it was iced over. We spent a lot of the time today in the root cellar where it is 52 degrees. It was so cozy.

We are looking forward to seeing our Grandma and Aunt Tracy who are coming down to see us this weekend. Our Aunt has 4 dogs she sometimes brings and we love to play with them.

The Sustaires got a pretty new cat (or so we hear, we have not even seen it yet) who is Trogdore's sister. They got it from their mom in Fort Worth. It is pretty wild.

We hope to post pictures of us on our new bikes and with our new neighbors, the Ante Children. We made a cool ramp for our bikes (which went through a 1 point inspection by our dad and Mihai.).

Our cats are not enjoying this cold weather. Especially the great hunter Belle, who is not as great with this weather. Rocky thinks it is great because he can sleep all day in the motorhome. He is not the most active cat. Samuel does not really care as long as no humans are touching him and he can do his own thing without iterruption.

Mr. Woods caught a bunny in his outhouse hole (which has not been used yet, mind you) and he buttered and roasted it over an open fire. Yum!

Well, have a nice day and God Bless!!
The Bunker Young'uns

(update - Aunt Tracy and Grandma could not come down because of the bad weather and ice)

A delicious outhouse bunny, that made me laugh. Your celler does sound cozy, I would like one but our watertable is too high in Va. Stay safe w/ all the ice!
