We always enjoy when Grandma comes over to our house. The younger children love when she reads stories to them. Here they are gathered together for a reading of "Blueberries for Sal". Thank-you, Grandma!

A Day with the Bontrager Family in November`

Hello! This is just a quick glimpse into our lives in this season of harvest. On most days we (everyone except Marlin & Mitchell-they spend almost every waking hour in the field) spend the mornings doing the "book" part of school and the afternoons running errands, riding in the combine or tractor, and doing various other farm and household chores.

Elizabeth: Vacuuming

Chelsy & Rebecca: Wiping the kitchen floor

Taylor: Piano practice

Denver: Learning how to type

Joshua: Working in his Language Arts workbook

Carson: Tackling Algebra I with the help of a teacher on cd

Chelsy and Rebecca: Packing lunches for the men in the field

Marlin: Combining corn

Mitchell: Hauling the wagons full of corn to the grain elevator

Hudson: Riding in the tractor or combine, usually all day.
