As spring has come to our neck of the woods I'm feeling renewed, energized, encouraged and inspired!
Just as I posted about last summer, I'm ready to go, full of vim and vigor. I've updated my project list in my planner/calendar book. Several things are still on there from last year and many new things.
The goals are the same, learning to be self-sufficient. The challenges are the same, disorganization and chaos.
But I am renewed with the spring.

The first Saturday of March we butchered our old flock of chickens and put 24 hens in the freezer. My mom was here to help and all the children helped. Everyone is getting used to it. Charissa even tried her hand at helping me with eviscerating.

Having my mom here is going to be an incredible inspiration. My mom is very project oriented and loves to keep busy. So I'm excited to have her here to keep me going!
