Time seems to keep on flying by which once again means a post with lots of random pictures :) here we go:
Sometimes I like to look through Karl's phone for pictures that he has taken. Some are interesting, some funny, and some have a common theme. The pic above is common theme I find when going through them... sunrise & sunsets. This particular one looks like it was taken at the top of the bulk bins at the hogshed...there's definately more where this one came from :) Karl likes to climb things and look out, and loves "pretty" skies.
Earlier this summer we went to the Iowa Speedway in Newton and watched a race -- it's super fun to go and watch and I'm slowly getting more interested in Nascar (aka forced to watch so might as well enjoy it).
Matt did the Hy-Vee triathlon this year. He did great-- swim, bike, run. He trained for a long time and was very dedicated. It was super fun to watch and can definatly say I have no ambition to ever do this but very proud of him for accomplishing a goal!
Typical sight.... thank goodness for Kurt's winch to pull all of us out.
CHIGGER BITES!!!!! My sister's family and I went camping with a bunch of friends. I got eaten alive, literally. These (thankfully) only itched for a few days, but took about 2 weeks for the red spots to disappear.
Oh how I love harvest. Between cargill being open odd hours, going after work and between other activities sometimes it just doesn't work out as nice as I'd like it to to ride along. That's where drastic measures come into play-- I got up on a Saturday to be at the shop at 6 w/ Karl so that I could ensure I could ride for a while... brought hot breakfast with me which always makes the boys happy!
Sometimes it feels like time just flies by and I'm not sure what I'd do without my planner & sticky note to-do list. Overall, we are very thankful for a fun end to summer, great start to fall, and blessed harvest. Hope you all enjoy this time of year as much as we have/are! :)
