Ben and I are happy to share that we have been enjoying our off-season with our children. Ben is working at the potato packing plant down the road, as he has been for several years during the off seasons. I am staying at home with our kids, William (5), Karli (4) and Kelsi (1). We spend our days going to swimming lessons, preschool, playing at home and catching up with our own family as our summer time schedule is much more busy. We are so thankful to have this time together during the winter.
Which brings me to my next thought; we are so thankful to have the opportunity to farm during the summer. It holds our family tighter, as we all work for a common goal. It is busy, yes. It is challenging, yes. It is everything we ever wanted to teach our kids, wrapped up in a lifestyle that we love sharing with our family, and our CSA families.
From our family to yours, Happy New Years!
