The Last Week, Or So!

A lot of work has been done in the last week. The guys started the week, okay, this would be last week, with building some walls in our dirt basement and had cement delivered to shore up two sides that were starting to collapse. Arthur said it should be good now for another 100 years!

Over at the maze, the guys built a shelter to go over the corn box. I guess this was "practice" because they are going to do the same thing over the Farmball game, only a much higher roof.

Heidi was sitting in the cornbox watching!  Her smile always makes me smile!

Meanwhile, I spent my time working on our maze parade float. Isn't Farmer Bill adorable! The blocks turned out pretty good too. That's Eli under the float!! No, he's not hiding from work like some might think ;) he was painting the wheels a nice yellow color.

We had a 4th of July picnic over at Arthur's parents. Lots of people, lots of food, and lots of fun!

Then we headed to the parade. Here's some of the cousins just waiting for the parade to begin. It was hot!

And here it is! We actually won a parade award so that was fun. People loved the float, and enjoy all the orange shirted workers that pass out maze flyers.  A BIG thank you to them for bearing the heat to walk that far!!

We had to make a quick walk in the maze to see if the corn made it to the "Knee high by 4th of July"! Yup, it did!

Meanwhile, Miriam and Jessica headed off to camp to join Hosanna and Priscilla. I'm not sure I can run the house without her, but so far so good :) Miriam works so hard it might take three of me to do what she does!

Have a wonderful week enjoying the gorgeous weather God is sending our way!!
