Visit to Jeremiah+Allison

 Two weeks ago, Mom, Elizabeth, and Rebecca headed north to Minnesota to visit Allison and Jeremiah.They arrived Monday evening, and stayed till Saturday morning. On Thursday, the guys came up to join the party!  We always LOVE getting to spend time with the married siblings/children and are so glad we had this opportunity to spend this time with the newest married couple! 

Here are a few pics from our time!

Farm Happenings!!!

We've been home for three weeks now and are loving these fall days of working on the farm, combining, loving on all the littles, enjoying scrumptious meals around the big wooden table with our favorites (family!), gathering garden produce, studying for the BB, and doing all those daily tasks that need to be done (or sometimes realizing they just can't all be done!). The LORD has blessed us tremendously, and we have so much to be grateful for! This fall is only starting, but we look forward to what the Lord has in store as we work+love+serve together!

Keep seeking+delighting in your Savior Who is the only One Who can truly make your fall the joyful season you want it to be!

Here's a little of our life currently!
