Our new house
As they say in Zaboomafoo, "We are going on an a big adventure and we don't know what's in store!" We are going to buy this farmhouse and a chunk of the farm. It is out in the middle of nowhere, but only 5 minutes from my work. We decided that we might want to try the farm life after we spent all of our Saturdays at Prophetstown state park, a living history farm north of Lafayette. So we are going to try it out for ourselves. The girls have been making a list of animals to get:
cat, to catch the mice, rats, moles, etc.
dog, to chase the cat, etc,
horse - actually may be a possibility, the Nefs, from church, have 11 horses and need somewhere to board a few,
chickens, of course,
goats, we are not so sure,
giraffes, elephants, hippos, all possible zoo animals.
