It is Friday! But around here, Friday doesn’t mean a whole lot since harvest is in full force. Things have been super busy around here, but there were still some pretty special moments on the farm that have been noteworthy. Here are FIVE things that I have loved about this past week.
1. Bringing Meals to the fields
We have brought lots of meals to the fields while the guys are combining this week. I have to admit, the girls have been absolute troopers. We have even snuck a couple of rides in the combine with Daddy while we have gone out there. We will take any time we can get with him these days.
2. Chilly Weather
We have had some cooler temps this past week and we are LOVING it! We pulled out all of our fall jackets and hats and have spent lots of time outside.
3. Homemade applesauce
Nora has been a big help in the kitchen this week! We made a test applesauce recipe earlier this week, and today we are making a few HUGE batches of it: cinnamon, peach and strawberry. I can’t even wait to see how it turns out!
And have my favorite little helper at my side, too.
4. Doing Laundry
My girl and her dress up clothes. Seriously, she wears them non stop. I posted to Facebook earlier this week that some days I feel more like the Fairy God Mother than Nora’s mama on laundry day. Haha!
5. The Squishy Human Body
I found this awesome human body teaching tool at Brain Works down at Prairie Fire in KC and it has been a total hit with Nora! We are beginning to learn general body parts and how our amazing bodies function. The nurse in me is in heaven right now! I’m excited to teach children her the basics and help her learn how she is fearfully and wonderfully made!
There is my five for this week! Our Boys in Blue lost last night, but we are still prepared to cheer for our Royals the rest of the weekend!
Linking up today with two of my favorite groups of gals 🙂
