26 Jul Laura: No stop to learning!
Southeast Colorado: Hi everyone. This harvest has perhaps moved into the position of “craziest one ever” due to weather. I’ve been a little bit of here, there and everywhere lately. That includes in a combine. As a result, I’ve gotten terribly behind so the next few posts will hopefully get you up to speed on some of the happenings of the team.
We headed out to southeast Colorado with the idea that I would probably be in a machine. However, the weather initially didn’t cooperate, so that gave us a few extra days of flexibility to play with our farm family’s children. Our kids have become buddies the last several years and it has been a joy to watch them all grow. Some highlights of their time together included the pool, zoo and for a history lesson, a visit to Amache, a Japanese relocation camp near Granada.
The kiddos standing next to the water tower at Amache. It was an eye opening experience.
On July 1, the kids were thrilled to able to share their act of love with the crew, in the form of homemade chicken noodle soup. Now normally, that would sound like a terrible meal for that time of year, but with slightly overcast skies and unseasonably cool temps, it worked. My mother-in-law used to have a noodle making business called “Donna’s Noodles.” For years I’ve been wanting to learn to make them. We finally made that happen while we were home, briefly. She taught us her recipe and how to use the noodle machine. It was such a special time of bonding.
So fortunate to spend time together and learn from the best.
Our hard work paid off. They were delicious.
Speaking of sweet bonding, my mom was also a huge help for the short time we were home. I had a ton of paperwork to catch up, as well as supervising some 4-H projects. My mom taught me to sew and she did the same for my kids while I worked with them on rocketry. I don’t know how I would have balanced all the responsibilities in such a short timeframe if it wasn’t for her help. I’m thankful for my village of family and friends who support us in this crazy harvest life.
What a great time of bonding and learning. Pinning, cutting, sewing, serging and ironing were learned.

I spy. Met the crew moving equipment north today 7/28,. They were in Nebraska on a somewhat narrow highway with some hilly road ahead of them, on the hottest day of the year (100 plus). Hopefully they will have a good trip with out too many problems.

It seems that the hills are always conquered on the hottest days! Thanks for the well wishes letting me know you spotted them! 🙂

Its like you read my mind! You seem to know so much approximately this, such as you
wrote the ebook in it or something. I feel that you can do with a few percent to pressure
the message home a bit, however other than that, this is fantastic blog.
An excellent read. I will certainly be back.

I’ve been surfing online more than 3 hours today,
yet I never found any interesting article like yours. It’s pretty worth enough for me.
In my opinion, if all site owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the web will be much
more useful than ever before.
