26 Aug Jenna: Home
I’ve been home just a little over a week and it’s been kind of a whirlwind. Driving 900 miles home, moving in, seeing family and friends, and starting school has kept me fairly busy this past week. Coming home is always full of mixed emotions. I am sad that harvest is over for another year and miss the traveling/people/lifestyle – but at the same time, it’s good to be home. I guess you could say the end of summer is a little bittersweet.
My parents and youngest sister are still in Jordan, Mont., attempting to finish harvest. It has been a strange summer in Jordan, as it has rained more than ever before. Also, the weekend before I left, there were two storms that produced hail. Unfortunately, one of our farmers lost about two-thirds of his crop to hail – a bad deal for everyone involved. I talked to Dad earlier today and it sounds like they could be finished cutting in the next couple of days.
So that’s about all the news for now! I’m posting the pictures that I took throughout the summer – a way to remember each stop, I guess. :]
The day we left home.
First stop: Seiling, Okla.
Second stop: Manter, Kan.
Third stop: Deerfield, Kan.
Fourth stop: Limon, Colo.
Fifth and final stop: Jordan, Mont.
