We've recently had our first frost...and our annual potato harvest is just around the corner. School is back in session, and it's hard for me to figure out what on earth happened to the summer. It went by so fast as usual. It's been a hard summer...farming has been frustrating with bad weather ruining crops, and bad prices as well...it feels like we have worked so hard this summer, and it's frustrating when hard work doesn't always pay off. Looking back at the thousands of photos I took, I realize that despite what felt like a lot of work, we indeed had so many fun times, and that my kids are incredibly blessed to grow up in the country. We didn't have time visit amusement parks, zoos, or take many special trips, but let me tell you, the simple joys of life in the country can beat any form of entertainment out there! In honor of fall coming, I thought I would share some of our favorite summer fun photos. We are so busy with farming, yard work, gardening, canning, and just trying to keep up with everything around here, it's nice to look back and realize all of the fun we had as well! We are so blessed to have such a beautiful place to call home, and even luckier to have so many family and friends to share it with!
phew...that was a lot of photos! I guess that's what I get for trying to fit the whole summer into one post!
