Last night I was doing an online event when supper was running late so I was running back and forth, by 7:10 they were all sitting at the table and I was back at computer, at 7:15 (central time) my 3 year old looked out the window and our small barn was on fire!! It was a blistering -20 with windchill and our excitement took 7 firetrucks! (2 departments) and 1000 gallons of water! That does explain WHY my garden hose couldn’t put it out Yes all of our heirloom breeding turkeys perished but 1. Sad day 😦
Saturday we had an amazing day. We searched online for skoolie buses for a long time. We knew another large homeschooling family with one and so have been trying to find one that “meets OUR unique needs”. We drove about 2 hours Saturday over to drive one. I’m not sure that it was THE ONE, but it was a start.
We then went to Chuck E. Cheese. There isn’t one close to us at all so when we get that close, we make it an event! I do have some photos for this but not able to get those off yet.
It was raining so it was not a good farm day.
Sunday, we spent at Worship and again, watching the outside —> rain. Late Sunday night, I took the big kids to see Night at the Museum 2. Wow! Not for littles but very entertaining.
Monday, the sun shone, so to work we went! We had a huge to do list, and we didn’t accomplish all of it, but we sure did work hard.
First, the Turkeys… They were originally in a brooder. (Maybe Brian can add a pic of this). Then they went to a tiny room we have in our big barn and yesterday they moved to their new home with a huge new yard. This yard was completely closed with trees and debris. It is rather large, probably 20*30 or so. The fence itself didn’t need much work as the Turkeys won’t be there forever *Grin*
Here is Keisa moving the turkeys…
We have 13 of our original tureys left. Here they are – exploring the new yard.
This was just our first task for the day… stay tuned for more updates.
