I'm linking up with with Andrea over at Momfessionals today for more of her "Come on In" series....
The yard is the reason why we built out here. 5 acres of wide open space with plenty of room to dream, and grow. This has been, by far, the best part of acreage dwelling. Yes, we have a 10 minute drive to the city, but we also have complete privacy and endless amounts of beautiful, Saskatchewan sky. After a year of living out all four of our seasons, I've come to realize that this space provides me with peace, regardless the season.
Take a look for yourself. The only thing I wish I had for you was some audio. The crickets, the birds, the frogs, the ducks.....or even the sound of complete silence. Yup, I've found my oasis.

|The veranda is also another fave.|
|Plenty of space for golfing and batting|

|Love the soft pastel colours of the winter|
|Willis participates in lots of character building activities, like hole digging.|
