Juliet turned 1 this week. I stole her mom’s picture off Facebook, so you could see her sweet face and family.

juliet1Small Town Nebraska:
The kids and I were just finishing up a little community service project, (little being the key word), when a country neighbor pulls up to give us some asparagus and eggs (and some seed corn Brad might need if he ever gets to plant again).farm eggs and asparagus

I think God was reminding me I can’t out give Him. Then He made sure I got the point when we were given more asparagus later that day. We really like asparagus.

We don’t so much like this,

If only I could count how many times we check the weather in a day. Brad needs little wind to spray and the field to dry out so he can plant. We’ve had very little of either. We’ve actually had Brad here to eat supper with us, but it feels slightly unsettling because we wonder when it will ever work to get that corn planted. At the same time, we work very hard to not complain about the rain. It’s just so strange to have had it appear repeatedly for more than two days.

Today he was finally able to get a full day of spraying. We saw him for 2 minutes when he rushed into the house at supper time, (Guess what we were having for a vegetable.) washed his hands, grabbed some Snickers, and said he was going to the big town to get some parts. If you’re going to have a break down, the end of the day is the time to do it I guess.

May I recommend Focus on the Family’s Family Project to you?
Family ProjectTheir website says it best, “The Family Project is a 12 session DVD experience for couples or small groups that explores the theological, philosophical, and cultural underpinnings of the traditional family, and combines that information with inspiring stories and practical tools to help 21st-century families thrive.”

We went through it with several couples and enjoyed it and learned from it at the same time. If you’re interested, I know where you could borrow the DVD’s.
