And Combining Has Begun!!

After many days of getting the swathers and combines ready, swathing and then letting it dry we out in the field and harvest has begun. Andrew and Kayla were so excited to go out to the field to watch and go for a ride with Dad. Josh usually does the trucking so being able to ride in a combine is pretty special! :)

Waiting for Daddy to come.

Unloading the combine.

I'm not sure whats being discussed here but I'm sure it's something very important. :)


Here we go! What fun!

Getting It Done Together

This Summer the farm bought another baler. We were going to sell the old one, but.... they needed to get the baling done in a hurry so out came the old baler and things got done twice as fast!

Stormy Weather

The past few weeks have been very hot so we have been dealing with a bunch of thunder storms, hail, high wind and rain. Some of our crops have been damaged which is not what you want to see as a farmer! But we know that God will continue to provide for us as long as we trust in Him! We are very thankful to know that everything will work out for good!
Last night we had another storm so Josh and I were out watching the clouds and I snapped a few pictures. Thankfully this storm did not do much damage, we just had a bunch of rain and wind.

Kayla doing some cloud watching with us.

Playing Together

Since the time when I first was pregnant with Makayla I looked forward to watching her and Andrew play together, learn together and just be each others best friend, these past few weeks I have been able to see the beginning of a very sweet relationship between them. Andy loves being the big brother and is always there to bring Kayla a toy that she threw away or make her laugh. My heart is overjoyed to watch them together, I am so blessed!!!
