“The ultimate goal of farming is not the growing of crops, but the cultivation and perfection of human beings.”

Weekend Surprises

The past weekend felt like the dividing line between early autumn and late - between warm and cold -  when days begin to feel so much shorter, and the air has a little bit of raw chill to it.  

We began the weekend with no unusual plans... a little farm work,

 a little relaxation, and a little sewing was what I had expected.

It's funny... life is rarely as we expect it though- and that can sometimes be a wonderful thing!  

As it turned out, our Littles came to the farm for a day of fun on Saturday. 

It was baby Elijah's first trip to the farm... and first hike in the woods.

As with any day with children on the farm... it was a wonderful time filled with adventures.

We spent the day playing outdoors, visiting animals, and going for gator rides.

All of our grandchildren love the farm, but this one... I think he loves it most of all!  

On Sunday, after animal chores were finished, 

I started working on face masks for the winter season and the holidays.  I hope to have them finished in the next week.

I also spent a little time doing something that I've meant to do for so very long.  (Thank you, Colleen for the gentle nudge!!)
