Hallelujah!

I'm Back!


Our harvest is finished for the year! Praise God....for the good weather....for a bountiful harvest....for allowing us to be stewards of the land!


We do have one more day of work to do at the neighbors but his corn is too wet to harvest and put in bin so he is going to hold off on it for a few days and hope it dries down in the field. But....our crops are out and we are very thankful!


We finished just in time....I am taking Jeremy to Rapid City tomorrow to tour 2 colleges out there (and visit my mom, step-dad and brother who live out there too). Jeremy is interested in SDSMT (South Dakota School of Mines and Technology) and Black Hills State. I wish Chad and Courtney could go with us too but Chad needs to get some things caught up around here and Courtney doesn't want to miss school. Oh well, it should give Jeremy and I some quality time together with all the road time we will have.

Have a safe trip! Happy college hunting.

Iknow you are glad to have those crops harvested! What's next on the farm? I suppose those pigs take up a lot of your winter. See, I'm learning!

It's great to get it all done isn't it? When we get finished we just wander around smiling at each other all the rest of the day. It's a good feeling!

Have a great trip!
