In The Woods

Wow. Things are crazy with 6 kids. I don't know if it's the number or the specific interesting dynamics we have with the 6 that are here....whatever it's crazy.

Our house is small, but our property is huge. The problem with our property is that our landlords live right across the street, and wow, they keep a close eye on us. It is tiring living like that, I must say, so we have been trying to get out just to avoid the daily emails.

Awesome thing is, we actually have our own property. It's in Shelton. There is a piece of family property (40 acres) that has been split up into four 10 acre lots, one lot for each of us siblings. It is nothing but woods, mostly an overgrown, long forgotten Christmas tree farm. And all of us only have a dream of someday doing something with our lot (it's becoming a more serious dream to me).

Anyway, the other day we decided to go play in our woods. We took Rachel's dog and some hatchets and saws. The big boys cut down some trees and scouted wildlife and we daydreamed about houses (or vacation cabins) in the woods.

I really love it there.

The only thing that property needs is a river running through it so fishing would be an option.
