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!

This Week in Smyer

This is Danielle again. Grandma continues to improve. I bet she is pretty glad to have that since she has always been pretty independent. This week has been interesting. I did get to have a wonderful visit with my dad and stepmom. It has been awhile since I have spent this much time here. Usually I am busy most of the time working on our old house(I did some work on the house too.). This time has been filled with more time in town at physical theapy visits, doctor visits, and in the stores picking up necessities. It is kind of ironic that the Mennonite community gives me the glances instead of the other way around. And now I know why they avoided eye contact with people most of the time. Tired of the prolongrd glances like there was something growing out of your head. It is just a headcovering people. But I gave them too before I knew the biblical principles behind headcoverings. And then then encounters with a few friends from my college days at Texas Tech. But the strange feeling aside I have enjoyed one thing while I have been here - ice cream. With freezers that run continuously, ice cream is always around. But bad habits aside, I am looking forward to seeing Michael, Jennifer, and Robert on Saturday. I miss the folks at the ranch too. We will go to a few more appointments tomorrow and then Grandad will be home and my week will wind down. On Saturday we will meet Michael half way and then home, Lord willing.
