|It took three long days to cut the maze but we're done!! My legs are so sore today from all that walking but it's a good feeling to know the maze is cut. It doesn't look like it in the photo, but in the three days it took to cut the corn it grew to over knee high in most places. Now that may not seem like much in most parts of the country but up here the saying is, "knee high by the fourth of July" so we're ahead of schedule. The girls and I marked the trails then I walked them with Arthur as he cut them with the weedeater. I believe today Silas is going to start mowing and dragging them. It's almost unbelieveable how Arthur buzzes the corn down to the ground and by the time we were done, the first corn cut was already about eight inches high again! I'm also excited about all the boxes of things the UPS man has been bringing for the maze. Banners, new worker teeshirts, store things, etc. Thank you to everyone that "liked" us on facebook. Arthur says he feels like a sixth grader again wondering if people "like" us :)|
We had an enjoyable, very short, visit from Aaron and Naomi a couple of times this week with their adorable little girls. They were up near here with a group from their church to help out another church.
Miriam and Hosanna have been helping out a mother who just had a baby yesterday. I know a lot of people think they should go to college or at least have a full time job. However, because they are home, in addition to doing a lot of farm and house work, they are flexible enough to help out different ladies when they need it, something they enjoy doing. They very much have a full time job!
Priscilla is excited because the UPS guy delivered a box of 250 "180" movies she bought to give out. If you haven't seen it, she would want you to. I'm sure she'll have a copy if you ask!
Silas is excited about his Explorers graduation coming up. It's been a great program at an important time in most of these young men's lives.
Isaac has been doing the farm work this week while Arthur's out in the corn field. Both he and Arthur and Silas have been fencing (a never ending job) and cleaning out the hayshed to put new hay in.
So it goes. Have a great day in the Lord!
