Making The Most Of A Dreary Farm Day

It's spring break week for us, and we're spending it at home on the farm. {With 24 young farm animals, I'm not sure a getaway was really an option!} While we'd really like to see some sunshine during the break, we're making the most of this dreary drizzle. Come sit with us as we watch chickens roam, ducks swim and dogs lounge.

My new favorite farm photo.

Our mobile coop, which will soon be placed out in the pasture.

But for now, they've discovered the back porch...

...the back door...

...the firewood pile...

...and the kitchen window sill.

The ducks are more contained for now.
Living in a barn stall with access to a pen behind the barn
where they can swim in a trough.

Playtime for the little chicks,
who are currently living in a trough inside the garage.

The Buffs stick close to us...
still climbing on and around our feet. So sweet!

JD has a hidden talent: animal whisperer.
They all love him!

The toddlers and the teenagers keep their distance.
This is as close as it gets!

And of course Buddy and Bella watch all the action.
{They haven't officially begun their job as guardians yet.}

muddy but feminine with those crossed paws.

the first of all the farm animals.

And what's a day on the farm without a little tree climbing?

I can't wait to see all the bare trees burst forth with life and leaves.
Come on, spring! We're ready for you!

It's crazy to think that only a year ago, during last year's spring break trip to Franklin, we saw this farm for the first time. It wasn't even for sale. But we heard a whisper in our hearts to dream big...and you all where that led us! Right back to this farm in Franklin, Tennessee. Lots of highs and lows along the way, but it's been a leap of faith we'll always remember...and never regret.

Blessings and love to you this Easter week!
