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!




Yesterday Tracy's doe, Claira had a litter of 3 or 4 bunnies. And only one dead this morning! What a blessing! This is the first litter on the land to survive one night. They are small and pink with little tiny ears and paws with claws like little white needles. They are 100% Californian meat breed.

We sang this morning. We know how to sing seven of the Psalms. We will learn a 8th one next week, Lord willing. We love to sing! Next week, Lord willing, we will have fellowship at the Ante's home.

The Gurau family will be purchasing some 20 or so chicks from a feed store this week, Lord willing. They are hoping to also buy a female rabbit and barter to breed her with San Diego, Tracy's buck. The already have 3 goats, and their names are: Daisy, Cocoa, and George, who is spending some time with Helen Keller.

The Siffords bought 2 new goats, one is a Nubian billy, and one is a Nubian\ Alpine nanny. They have not named the nanny, but they are considering naming the billy Shatnner. Winnie the LaMancha now has 2 new friends.

Sometime today we will take Tracy's volleyball net over to the Irby's house to set up in their yard. That will be fun.

Well, over and out!

What wonderful news about the new litter of bunnies! It sounds like there is a big increase of animals in the community. Playing volley ball is a lot of fun and was always one of my favorite outdoor activities.

God Bless,
