We are back to blogger land. Did anyone miss us?
I will try to share the month of August with you with a few pictures. So much has happened………we sang 23 times at a total of 12 events in western and southern IA. We froze nearly 60 quarts of corn and 30 quarts of peaches; made 45 quarts of salsa; canned 20 quarts of tomato juice; froze 5 quarts of tomatoes; planted lettuce, radishes, kohlrabbi, spinach, and beets, and ate too many fresh cucumbers, tomatoes, and melons to count! We also prepared for our 7th annual “Turning Hearts Celebration” which Chelsy will post about later this week. And there was the usual farm work-milking the cows, feeding the calves, etc.
We can say with David, “Bless the Lord, O my soul: and all that is within me, bless his holy name. Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits: Who forgiveth all thine iniquities; who healeth all thy diseases; Who redeemeth thy life from destruction; who crowneth thee with lovingkindness and tender mercies; Who satisfieth thy mouth with good things; so that thy youth is renewed like the eagle’s. ” Psalm 103:1-5
Chelsy, Allison, and Elizabeth went to see our friend, Mrs. Hoppe, in North English one afternoon to wish her “Happy Birthday”. Elizabeth isn’t in the picture because she took it!
The boys had a silly moment on the trolley while we were at “Old Thresher’s”.
