In honor of Liberty, who turned 19 this past Sunday, a story. Liberty works in the fertilizer department at a grain elevator. She drives a semi, a fertilizer spreader (tractor) and skid steer all on a regular basis. One day last week, she was working at the elevator when a part broke in the mechanism […]
Liberty, aka “Bobby” to Creed, called one day and said she was working in a field close to home spreading fertilizer and asked if I could run Creed to her. He’s still talking about it almost a month later. He got to ride with her for hours. He now sleeps with his little spreader toy […]
We left after Eden’s grad honors night, drove much of the night, slept briefly in the van, and pulled into town a couple hours before graduation was set to begin. It was a long night but driving overnight kept Lach pretty happy. Creed was less thrilled, but he survived. Liberty did it! She’s finished her […]
We’re headed back to Springfield this week for Liberty’s graduation from the tech school there. A friend is having a party for both Liberty and Eden, celebrating each of their graduations. We’ll drive overnight tomorrow night and stay with friends through Sunday. The kids are all over the moon. How Lach does traveling will be […]

So… here we are. Over nine months since Blaine got his CDL, we sold the house, Blaine quit his job in Missouri, and we packed up and moved north to my parents’ in South Dakota with the plan to stay with them short term while we got things lined up to buy an acreage in […]
Ruby went all out in creating pies for us to celebrate 3.14. Pizza pies and cream pie and a dark chocolate and coconut cream pie made for yummy celebratory foods. Creed really loved the pies. I’ve caught him trying to get more over and over. Happy Pi Day!
Elliot Adelaide turned eight years old March 1. So crazy to think that eight years has passed since she came into the world, scaring us all. She got stuck. Her heartbeat was skipping. She didn’t breathe for four minutes. Here we are. She’s reading everything she can get her hands on. Thriving. Excelling at math. […]
