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!

A little late posting, but here it is......

Okay, here I am again, a year older. I turned 16 on May 27th. I don't celebrate birthdays with confetti and presents for biblical reasons, but I am happy that the Lord has so gracefully blessed me with yet another year.

Also, my "BloggerLand" friend, Victoria Rebbecca, has also celebrated another year. She turned sixteen on May 27th, as well! Congrats, Victoria! Praise the Lord for his grace and mercy! Read about what her sweet family did for her on her special day here .

Well, we have bought another Yellow Black Mouthed Curr pup. This one is a male andnamed Pepper. He is sweet and adorable. Sugar is fired up to have a companion, and Pepper is equally curious to have such a "grown up" friend. Stay tuned for pictures of Pepper and Sugar together!

My female Californian rabbit, Sonora, had a litter of eight little bunnies in April,which was a welcome kickstart to another kindling season. One of these little bunnies is very unique. She was born with only three legs! So she has become a "keeper". She will be kept and bred, as I can't bear to let her go. Hopefully her defect is not genetic. But she has a wonderful attitude, very outgoing and friendly.

As you might have learned on Dad's blog, Pita the Watusi/Longhorn dropped a beautiful calf named Petra. So I have finally tamed her to milk, and have been milking her every morning with fair results. She is such a blessing, as we don't buy milk from the store, so fresh milk is a welcome addition to our table.

Well, I have many more subjects to write about, but stay tuned, as they will be in the next edition.

Till Next Time.....

Happy Birthday! And I'm glad your bunny had a good litter. I am hesitant, though, about breeding a bunny with a defect like that... I'm sure it would make a marvelous pet, but I don't think it would be a good idea to breed it. Just my thoughts. :-D Good to see you posting!
