Emma:Workin’ hard

It’s been few days since we’ve arrived in Gotebo, Okla., and although we’ve run our normal acres through our five machines, things seem slow. There’s just something about a “normal” harvest that seems to go faster when you see those semi’s running up and down the roads with a cloud of dust behind them. No such luck this year. The wheat is averaging 15-20 bushel/acre, resulting in a couple semi loads each quarter of wheat we do. I wouldn’t say this is bad considering the year we’ve been handed.

Some wheat is better than no wheat.

Here’s a few pics showing you what we’ve been seeing these past couple days.

Abby was riding with me, taking my picture. 🙂 Abby arrived on Thursday the 26th. We’re so happy to have her here to visit and work with us.

Almost time to call it a day.
Saw these little guys when we arrived in Gotebo. 🙂
Not sure if they’re the fightin’ kind, but they were pretty little.

They didn’t seem to mind us, and we didn’t mind them.

They came right up to my feet and took a sniff. They didn’t seem to care and ran off. They were pretty little and didn’t know any better.

Be safe and God bless!
