The internet is, truly, a wonderful place. It is an endless fountain of information that can help any dedicated individual learn just about anything they put their time into. In fact, just about everything I know (crafting-wise) was self-taught through YouTube and well-written tutorials. Rabbit farming, sewing, baking, cookie and cake art… all of that […]Read More Sewing Lesson #1: Don’t Listen to Snooty Hags
I mentioned in my previous post that my kids were working on their own little “businesses.” Now, before anyone mentally jumps down my throat, I will quickly clarify some things: 1) No, I am not exploiting my kids. 2) Yes, they enjoy it. 3) Yes, they have free time. This is a large part of their schooling, […]Read More It’s Never too Early to Teach Your Kids Ethical Business Practices.
It has been a hot, drippy minute since I last updated here… and boy, do I mean DRIPPY. It’s mid-September and still well over 100 degrees here. I can only sweat so much! I am, admittedly, positively sick of this heat. I don’t do well in summer weather. My kids don’t. My rabbits don’t. It’s too much. […]Read More I’ll Catch Up Eventually.
I debated posting about this for a long time. It’s not an easy thing to discuss. I posted previously about a hard day I had that resulted in me having to cull two baby rabbits, plus nearly losing two more later that day from a snake attack. Some people may disagree with this. I let […]Read More SENSITIVE TOPIC: Teaching My Kids About the Devastating Parts of Farming
Hey all, it’s been a while. We have had so much happen in the past… how long has it been since I last updated here? Too long, that’s for sure. Let me say first that everyone at home is doing wonderfully. We have all kept busy with new projects, including venturing into raising quail, ducks, […]Read More Spring has Given Us Some Uncomfortable New Lessons
I am admittedly behind on my resolutions. A Christmas Eve electrical fire at home while on a trip out of state followed by illness after you return will do that to you (the house is fine, but MANY electronics have to be replaced… that’s another story). Like I have mentioned, our lives just do not […]Read More My 2018 Resolutions
One of the things we did while visiting Utah was visiting my husband’s therapist from his teens years. I will refer to her as P. She is an expert in special needs children and adults with her own program that focuses on retraining the brain to pay attention, absorb information, and keep that information. She has taught […]Read More We Have Answers!
Most parents allow television time for their kids, to some extent. That’s totally fine. As someone who is frequently doing something- chores, sewing, rabbit work, baking, whatever- I totally understand the need to give your kids something to keep them out of your hair for a while. We get touched out, overstimulated, overwhelmed, exhausted. I […]Read More Why I Decided to Ban My Daughter From Her Tablet (But Not My Son From His)
Raising rabbits sounds fantastic- who wouldn’t want to spend all day playing with bunnies? The reality, though, is that you will experience more sad days than one would expect. This morning was an example. Every morning, I feed my kids, then go outside and refresh waters and feed in all the rabbit cages. I started […]Read More A Hard Lesson Learned
This has been a great weekend! Beautiful weather (completely gray and overcast with temperatures below 75; just what I need to thrive), sewing projects completed, connections made, new additions to the bun family, and valuable learning experiences. First, I’d love to mention that Radagast’s babies are thriving. We did have one interesting incident… the bunny […]Read More My First Rabbit Show Experience and New Additions
