The Living Without Series

This is a series of posts that I wrote back in 2006 on living with less stuff. Check them out: liv011Living #2liv031liv04

Coal Creek Farm on Facebook

The Chicken Doctor


The Architect


The Three Amigos and Coal Creek


I know it looks harmless but, you have no idea how bad this pile of socks and shoes smells.  I feared for the lining of my nostrils.


My son had two of his best buddies out to play in Coal Creek.  The three of them are very funny together, I can’t tell you how much I enjoy watching and listening to their antics.

They started off so clean and cautious.  And they kept on all their clothing.


Seth’s friends were a bit wary of the rope swing and the tire swing.  They had to “test” it a few times by pulling it really hard.  Eventually, they all gave it a go and determined it was safe.

And then they got totally wet.

Which means the shirts had to come off.


Because you can’t paint yourself with mud if you have on a silly shirt.


Yes, the white kid in the middle is mine and he’s not my palest kid.  I know, that’s scary.  Sunscreen is our friend.


Do you know it’s really fun to take pictures in the middle of the road?  The biggest kid in this photo is more than a year younger than the other two kids and the oldest kid is the smallest but has the largest feet known to mankind and my kid is the whitest.  It’s all good, they’re still in that weird ‘puppy’ stage, you know, where they’re so ugly they’re cute?

Gosh, they’re a lot of fun.  And get this, I think they all think I’m kinda fun too, but it might just be because I let them ride on the tailgate back home.  Please don’t tell them it was because they were muddy and there was no way in hell I was letting them put their butts on the cloth seats of the truck.  And stop worrying I went slow and our dog was running beside us the entire way and those boys had the best time.  Gosh, they’re a lot of fun.  Did I say that already?
