Thankfully, we are moving for the last time!

We are closing on some land and a little trailer next week. It's not much, but we will own it outright! We will save what would be rent payments to put toward building a house in a few years!

My kids are excited that soon they'll have a house, yard, chickens, and rabbits (the last 2 for food). We also know a church member who sells raw milk ($2 a gallon too).

UPDATE - We close on Friday morning!!!

--New Update--

Kind of. LOL

The owner lives in UT. We are buying in MO. They FedExd the paperwork for the owners to sign, including an overnight FedEx envelope. They told them to mail it yesterday, so it would be here today. They mailed it today. 😖

We did our part of the paperwork and gave our cashiers check for the property. They should have the paperwork Monday. The title co will hold onto the check until all paperwork is done. We should have it Monday.

We bought mainly for the lot. The trailer (which isn't real pretty and needs a lot of work) will be temporary until we build our place in a few years.

**Update**
We closed on Monday the 23rd. It's ours. :D

Thank you! It is just huge news for us!

We've wanted this for so long. I prayed on Tuesday to be led to where we need to be. On Wed we found this place. Today they accepted our offer. :D

That is horrible that the chickens and rabbits are going to be used for food.

It's healthier than the meat pumped full of hormones in the store. They'll have a much happier life than those animals too.

Is there a certain breed of rabbits for food usage?  I can not imagine eating rabbits but I am presuming for now they take up less room and maintenance than cows, sheep, or goats.

Kind of worried tonight. Our diabetic dog has decided to refuse her insulin shots. Not sure where the situation will go from here.... :-(

We do the chickens and rabbits for food too.  MMMmmmmm....  :0)  New Zealand Whites are a good breed to use for meat.
