The fence and gate were finally finished! Sacrifice is more or less animal proof. There are still the occasional baby goat or chicken that wonder on to the land but Solda tends to put everyone in their place immediately.

What do you get when you when you have a hand full of Texan firemen, a welder, a super dad, some magical Canadians, and a bunch of friends and family support?? I’ll tell you… You get to watch a dream become reality.

Easter was a hoot. I had spoken to Frantz to find out what Lia used to do for Easter and if she ever colored eggs with the kids. He said that last year they had spoken about it but had not yet played with egg coloring. When I was state side back in February my a friend of mine donated a box full of goodies for the kids, 1/2 of the box was filled with egg coloring kits. This was going to be so much fun.

At the beginning of the year I decided to get a bit more aggressive about the care of our land. Lia had always dreamed of building a home for the kids on this land as well a business. For 3 years she tried to make her dream a reality but left us before she could see her dream become a reality. I started to make a habit out of taking the kids to the land to visit Lia every week and also to keep their connection with their land alive. They really need no help in that department, anytime we have a project they ask if we can go to Sacrifice (the name of our land) and hang out and visit with Lia.
