So far, we've built the chicken coop and put tilapia in the pond for The Perpetual Self-Reliance Project.
Today, we took up ALL the kids (all 19 of them) to help out with little projects.
We all caught a pickup that took us directly to the property (you have to pay extra for that privilege, but it's better than walking the mile up the crazy steep hill).

When we arrived, it was great to see the progress that has been made since we were last there. The entire property is enclosed with chain link fence, including a gate that keeps store customers out of the farm:
The first rooster arrived!
Adding a row of barbed wire:
Digging holes and placing posts to separate the 'garden' area from the 'animal' area:
I love these girls! They're so awesome. Glad we can all hang out together 🙂
So many fun places to hang out with your friends:
Aren't they so cute? Chocobananos (chocolate covered bananas) help pass the time for tired little kiddies.
Plenty of work got accomplished too:
I helped too 🙂
Even though I do not know how to flex 😉
There was a bathroom nearby:
And of course they made us food, even though they didn't have enough, so each family shared one bowl of caldo.
Atlas being cute 🙂
Josh is tired after a hard days work (or maybe he's just practicing his cowboy modeling poses) 😉
Good work on the nesting boxes:
The happy little farming couple:
Good work crew!
Time to go home (we start the mile long hike down the mountain).
What a view after another fabulous day!
Thank you so much to all our generous donors. This wouldn't be possible without you!
