It's been many years since I've been around to see the farming season go from seeding to harvest. (And the last time I was around for it I was probably too young to really care.) But, after being away from the world of grain farming for so long, Erik and I enjoyed "being a part" of the farming activities. Especially now that we're seeing it through our kids' eyes.

Keziah's turn!

Discovering some spilled grain.

Hmmm... Future farmer?

Fun! And they are old enough that they will remember this summer for a long time.

Looking forward to having you home soon.
