July farm update

It has been a while since I have posted anything here.  We have been busy.  The men are making hay, spraying crops and the never-ending checking cows & fixing fence.  I have been the go-fer and kept busy with book work. 

Mark & I took my parents and ran away to Fargo/Moorhead for one weekend.  We went to a most awesome wedding, reception & dance on the Saturday (Congrats Sonja & Brad) and to my great-niece's first birthday party on Sunday. 

I also got the chance to be  4-H aunt too!  Our boys were in 4-H for all of the 18 years they could be so it was fun, after a couple year break, to be a part of that again.  It was our county's Achievement Days so I helped Travis get his baking, and fresh flower & rhubarb picking taken care of.  Then off to the contest where I was a helper. 

We also hosted a memorial service for our cousin, Capt. Anne M. Rockeman Montgomery.  She was killed in a night practice session in a US Army helicopter last December in Washington state.  It was fantastic to see so many members of the Rockeman clan. 

Through in a trip to Bismarck for dear mother-in-law and it has been a very busy couple of weeks.   No photos to share at this time as I haven't even downloaded them!


  1. So sorry to hear about your cousin.
    This seems to be a really busy time of the year for everybody. I know I have more time for blog reading and writing in the winter! :)
