New Beginnings

Well, we stopped for a moment of silence on our farm this morning as we marked the end of summer, and the beginning of a new school year.  The school year is starting off with a bang too.  We had a pretty nasty storm roll through our area last night.  So...instead of getting a good night's sleep before school starts, JM was up for a while in the night to wait out the storm.  Getting up this morning when it was time to get ready was a bit of a challenge.  We made it in plenty of time to get some pictures before he had to get on the bus.

I was kind of sad to see my little farmer get on the bus this morning.  It just meant that the house was going to be pretty quiet, and I would not have my helper anymore.  He is really looking forward to his 4th grade year.  I'm sure that he is having much more fun with his friends at school than hanging out with boring 'ol mom.

And off he goes!  :(
 I did manage to keep myself busy today since there is always a long list of things to get done on the farm.  Fall is right around the corner, and we will be getting started making sure the equipment is ready to go to the field.
