-Wheat harvest came and went. We were blessed with good protein in our wheat this year.
-We started building a barn for my critter collection. It is jokingly (or not so jokingly) called my she-shed. I am excited to have a room to keep all my milk stuff in and a place to milk out of the elements. Unfortunately, fall harvest starts next week which means my barn will be on hold for a couple months.
-Probably the most exciting thing from our summer was adding a new family member. We were able to adopt our daughter the end of July. We amazingly had in person court and followed that with a barbecue to celebrate.
Millet harvest will start next week. This means I am the babysitter for the family now. I will juggle homeschooling my five kiddos, watching my three youngest nephews, physical therapy appointments, gymnastics and ninja fit practices, Awana, and being available if anything is needed in the field. Long story short, pray for me! Fall harvest can last until Thanksgiving for us, rarely longer. In three and a half months we will finally get to slow down and hopefully get to unwind a little as a family.
Even though it's long and demanding harvest is an exciting time. We work all summer for this. This is the time where we see the fruits of our labor. The long hours pay off as we watch that golden grain come out of the field, into the combine, onto the grain cart, into the truck, and to the bin.
I pray your summer was full of blessings and you find much to be thankful for in fall.
