Laura: That spring it rained…a lot!

Laura: That spring it rained…a lot!

Park, Kansas—Northwest Kansas has been included in the rainy pattern that has been prevalent this spring. As a result, many, including us, still have fall crop to get in the ground. Time will tell how that all shakes out. But, things are green. I mean green-green, and it is beautiful. That’s one way I’m trying to keep a positive outlook because I remember a time, in the not so distant past, when the faucet in the sky turned off with not a drop to spare.

Since the rain has been so far reaching, we’ve been given a little extra time at home. Anticipation is riding high, but the extra days have been put to good use. The crew has been able to get everything prepped and even a few extras. The same has been true on the home front. Heaven knows this mama needs all the time she can get! The children have enjoyed a few extra days with friends and long days of outdoor play, well, when it hasn’t been raining.

Conditions are ripe for a favorable crop down south. Equipment is loaded, trips will be made, and we look forward to wheels turning just as soon as we can get into the field!

The arrival of the camper brings much excitement at our house. This is their “first look” of the season. I think I have several years worth of this same shot. Time slow down. They’re so big now!

    Hope that you are getting started down south, and have a good run. Here it has been dry for 4-5 days now so we are hoping guys can get the milo & sorghum planted. Looking forward to hearing how things are going for your crew.

      Thanks, Marcy! I Hope you guys get the rest of fall crop in. As of last night, we still aren’t able to get in the field. 🙁
