Living out on the farm was bliss despite the lack of water and power but we did manage to get all that going before the summer's end. We got our water tower up, solar panels electrifying, septic draining, bathroom tiled, and the wood floors of the cabin will soon be layed so we can move in. We are living part time in Quilanto and part in Chiriuco. The big boys are now full time students of Colegio San Vicente de Paul in Puerto Octay. We are officially in process for permanent residency. Still waiting on the title for our property even though we signed almost 3 months ago.
Here are a few stories and pictures.
|Our big helper|
|Bo, Andrew's duck, is the worst of the styrofoam eaters|
One day she was quacking so hoarsely I thought for sure she had eaten too much styrofoam but after a few days her voice returned to normal
|The outhouse in the woods came with the property and it was a real life saver as we did not get the bathroom installed in the cabin for 2 months|
|The boys snuck out one night to the neighbor's field and rearranged his hay bales for him|
They almost got caught in the act as the farmers were out working late in the dark
I imagine they were a little puzzled to find this the next morning!
Thomas got himself stuck behind this root in the water line ditch!
We had to lift him out
