1st day of School

My goal this week was to blog everyday since the kiddos are back in school but here we are and it is Wednesday and this is my first post for the week. Pitiful! Last week and the first of this week everyone started back to school. Ky is in 1st grade and we are SO excited that Mrs. Thornburg is her teacher.  Her classroom was decorated like "Little House on the Prairie" so adorable.


The high schoolers started the same day as Ky. Tiana is a Sophomore this year and

Kenton is a Junior and he would NOT give me a good pic so this is what you get. Ha! He is a mess.


Taryn started college on Monday and wants to major in nursing. God has blessed us with great kids. The milkman and I often talk about what we did to deserve such amazing kiddos and we always come back to the same answer. It is nothing we have done but the blessings God has given us for which we are so thankful! Love them so much and so excited as they all start a new year.

The Feed Store Field Day

Monday night was the annual field day for the local feed store. What is a field day you ask? It is where the farmers in the area are invited to come and look at how the different varieties of plants (corn and soy beans) grow so that way they can make a better decision when they are ordering their seeds for the next planting season. Of course a yummy meal is served as a way of saying "Thank you" for their business. This year they asked me to make 12 dozen cupcakes for the event. Which I was happy to do.


I loved getting to visit with the few ladies that either served or came with their farmers.





It was a great evening and a great turn out. It is always a good time when I can have my side kick along to help. :)

Fun Time with Friends

Last weekend our good friends came from MO for a visit. We LOVE them so much and had a great time.
Their son jumped right in helping with chores he even brought his own chore boots. I love that!
Katie loves to bake and she made not once but twice these most De-lish brownies! So good!
One of the days while they were here we headed over to a town about an hour away for the free zoo.




Just so that we wouldn't miss the cows or the milk barn they had one there at the zoo. Ha!


I love this pic of the guys, they were watching the goldfish and then a big snapping turtle kept coming up to get air. They watched for the longest time.

Needless to say when we are all together there are a bunch of kiddos.



So thankful for the friendship God has brought into our lives 3 years ago through Instagram.
I love how God uses things like the internet to bring friends together. Love them all so much. Thank you for coming and hanging with us here on the farm. The memories we made last weekend are ones I will have for a lifetime.
