If you met my husband and I just 4 years ago, you would not believe where we are today. We live in the country, we have a huge garden, we are talking about getting chickens at some point…its a little crazy. In fact, the first week we lived here I literally had to brake on the highway through town for a chicken crossing the road. No joke! However, living in the country does have its advantages. We have all kinds of natural resources at our fingertips to use in our homeschool lessons.
