1st Trip to the Farm

While back in Phillipsburg we spent alot of time on the farm, I was excited that the weather finally warmed up enough to take Tenley down to the farm for a while (and play in the snow, picts of that to follow).  Grandpa was down doing chores so we went to join him for a while. 

I am so grateful that she will grow up knowing what farm life is like and gaining the values that in instills.  It was such a huge part of my life and still is today.  Mom and Dad when you read this I hope that you know that I really was listening all the time growing up about how I needed to work with my animals, help around the house/farm and pull my weight.  Now that we have a little one to mold, we couldn't be more grateful that she will have such wonderful role models in you both to teach her all of the valuable lessons that you taught her Mommy!  Not a day goes by that Tim and I don't think about or wish that we were closer to home and our families.  Don't get me wrong, we love it in Chanute and the friends and "family" that we have here are fantastic.  We are just thankful that with our jobs we are able to take a week at a time and head home.    We miss you already and had such a wonderful visit!

I also have to giggle that I am sure Dad knew this picture was inevitable when we got out of the truck with the camera in hand, glad he has a soft spot for his girls and would humor me!

We love you Dad/Grandpa, you are one of the most important men in our lives!

  1. Not a day goes by that we also wish we were closer. It just makes the visits that much more special. The day will come soon when we hear that sweet little voice say "Papa lets go feed cows." or "Grandma lets bake cookies." You can be sure we will be there for her 4-H years. I know Tim remembers how to break a sheep to lead!!! Love you all sooo much..Mom
