This has been a heck of a year with more changes that I care to admit. For one, part of the farm family is going to be traveling and working for various government agencies in line with her degree (my mother and father). We will be taking over and managing the farm and house life here while they go on their grand adventures. Some may feel shorted on this front but being a home base for the ones who desire to help others in disasters is exactly my plan from the very beginning. My dream has always been to farm; it’s as simple as that. I love my life and am doing everything to preserve a dying lifestyle in this fast paced world we live in.
School is about to start back and this is always a bitter-sweet time for me because I love the summer time growing season. School adds a new level of stress in the peak harvest season around here. I love the knowledge I gain from my studies but I am not looking forward to the workload. I am hopeful that I will be done with this degree in the next year so I can move on to the next phase in our lives here on the farm.
My oldest is starting kindergarten this fall!!! Time seems to be rushing by and my sweet baby is growing faster than I would like her to but in ways that make me so proud of her. Thankfully, she is able to do her schooling at home with me so that I can help her deal with the rising issues with her ADHD. She is brilliant so I foresee us overcoming all the challenges that school will bring.
This was just a quick update while I wait for the testing session to open for my graduate school exam. This test is just one more step in my journey toward my degree.
I pray the Lord’s sweetest and richest blessings on everyone!
Until next time.
