In earlier American rural life, communities raised barns because many hands were required. These events occured in a social framework with a good deal of interdependence. Members of rural communities often shared family bonds going back generations. They traded with each other, worshipped with each other and celebrated with each other. Barn raisings were an integral part of life and socializing.
In our modern American life, communities don't mean nearly as much as they did back then. It is our family's goal to bring a sense of community back to our lives and those lives that touch ours.

We loaded a U-Haul today. Blah. This part of moving is the stinky part. The packing. The driving back and forth with small loads in the back of my Subaru. The unpacking. The U-Haul helped a bit. At least all of the furniture is moved now.
The goats and cats are afraid they will be left behind and therefore took the liberty to load themselves...
