I am a farm girl, married to my high school sweetheart. We grew up on farms 9 miles apart and went through 12 years of school together. I liked him in grade school, but it took until we were Juniors in high school to get him interested in me as more than a friend. I have never lived more than 10 miles from home, except in college, but have travelled as far as France, Germany and Switzerland. We live on our own farm and have raised three of our six kids. The last three are growing up fast.
We had a beautiful day last Saturday when about 20 people from SE Asia came to our place for a farm tour. Later in the evening was our annual ice cream social, but it all fit together seamlessly.
Our visitors were soybean industry reps and farmers. They seemed to enjoy seeing our home and hearing about our operation. These people had already been in the US (Portland, NE, and IA) for 8 days and still had 8 more days of touring before returning home.
We are working on making potato salad today for the Ice Cream Social, and I am using my "new" cool bowls from my #1 daughter. Love the color. Also putting away the dilly beans and strawberry rhubarb jam that we made last week. Yummy day!
