With the birth of our very first calf, so starts the begining of our dream of being self sufficient. It is such a miracle of mother nature. I have never felt so at peace with myself than as I do right now. I feel that this crazy, hard and sometimes stressful homesteading thing is exactly the right thing to do in so many ways. This is exactly the life I have always dreamed of, both for myself and for my kids. We are teaching our kids so many good things that will always be with them I hope anyway. And life should be about the passing of knowledge from one generation to the next, never to be forgotten.
