My Family on a Small Town Nebraska Saturday:
(after they got over their morning fighting and grumpiness)
Dad to the rescue! A 2 block drive in the back of the pickup, and then going to check the pivot are usually always a win for the kids.
Lunch at the town convenience store helped matters too, especially when friends showed up and joined us.
Brad was glad to haul one of his treasures into town so he could put it under cover. Being out in the weather has already caused it some difficulty.
Get this – I happily when to the nearest grocery store to get some groceries. I read about the benefits to the community of shopping locally, and I’m trying to do my part a little more. One step at a time. Plus we were completely out of milk and that will only make for more kid grumpiness, which I cannot handle.
Liza got to play at “Daddy’s shop,” which is a highlight for her. Check out her cute dirty face after the fun. (The fat lip is from a yesterday incident, and she’s taking a momentary break from shucking corn to see who happened to be driving by.) She takes her corn shucking seriously.
What I’ve Been Thinking and Learning:
18 And others are the ones on whom seed was sown among the thorns; these are the ones who have heard the word, 19 but the worries of the world, and the deceitfulness of riches, and the desires for other things enter in and choke the word, and it becomes unfruitful. 20 And those are the ones on whom seed was sown on the good soil; and they hear the word and accept it and bear fruit, thirty, sixty, and a hundredfold.”
And a here is a good read for all farm moms and wives as harvest is approaching.
