This poem made me remember all our fun times in South Dakota. We loved going to Custer State Park to see the bison roaming the hills there. This is a collection of photos from all of our visits to the park over four years. Oh, these cute little ones...

The Flower-Fed Buffaloes of the Spring

The flower-fed buffaloes of the spring
In the days of long ago,
Ranged where the locomotives sing
And the prairie flowers lie low:—
The tossing, blooming, perfumed grass
Is swept away by the wheat,
Wheels and wheels and wheels spin by
In the spring that still is sweet.
But the flower-fed buffaloes of the spring
Left us, long ago.
They gore no more, they bellow no more,
They trundle around the hills no more:—
With the Blackfeet, lying low,
With the Pawnees, lying low,
Lying low.

~Vachel Lindsay


  1. Found your blog and I love it!

    I'm actually planning on moving my family to Puerto Rico, in Aguadilla, around this July. We already found the perfect house and are working out the lease ...

    I wanted to ask you, did you use a moving company to get your stuff down there? If so who did you use and would you recommend them?

    Anything you wish you did differently?

    Moving is always stressful, but I've NEVER moved even to another state much less to another island!

    Would love it if you had any advice for another American family looking to make the move to Puerto Rico :)

    All my best,

  2. Hi Caleb, I've had more and more questions about this, so I'll work on some posts that address this!
