Hello, my loves! Summer is finally here at our little farmhouse, and I am loving all the sunshine and family time we’ve had lately. I have been busy working on outdoor projects like a new potting bench, this outdoor table setting, and our patio makeover, and also just did a fun photo shoot of our house that will be featured somewhere special soon!
Jeremy finished up planting our crops, and now he is busy cleaning up the tractors so they can be parked in the sheds until fall when we’re ready to harvest our corn and soybeans. He took on a lot more responsibility at the farm this year, and I am so proud of all that he is juggling and managing right now. Both of us being small business owners is definitely not easy for our finances or our schedules, but I honestly wouldn’t have it any other way. I think our entrepreneurial spirits are one of the things we have in common that really bonds us, and I love that our kids get to see first hand all the hard work that goes into running a business.
Speaking of the boys, we’ve had baseball, baseball, and more baseball on our calendars the last two months, and as of last night our seasons are finally over. My youngest, Wyatt, graduated kindergarten and played tee ball this year, but was asked to step up and play rookie league (with first and second graders) for their tournaments. And my oldest, Alec, finished his fourth grade year and was one heck of a catcher for his baseball team. As much as I’m going to miss our nights at the ball diamond eating popcorn and trying not to get hit by foul balls, I am definitely looking forward to our schedules calming down a bit… until next month when football starts. : )
