Micah’s friend Tim from Manitoba shared encouraging words.
Our family sang “#606”, Praise God.
Micah gave a short thank you speech. Followed by food!!!
Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful.But his delight is in the law of the Lord; and in his law doth he meditate day and night. Psalm 1: 1 & 2
Micah we love you and are thankful for your godly character and faithfulness! God bless you in the years ahead!
We have had a busy time with Jesse’s graduation, weeding, cherry picking, helping with Joshua’s house, picking apples, digging potatoes, starting carrot harvest and many other things!
After 12 years of hard work Jesse graduated from school. We had a short program including a graduation song and a few words of encouragement from one of Jesse’s friends and a farmer Jesse has worked for. And then, of course, lots of food!
Cherry picking went well except for this variety which had a lot of mold so we just picked a few.
Dad picking some delicious apples. Other people in our family do help pick too 🙂 . You can click here to see the price list.

Hawk and his ball. He enjoys playing fetch and watching the yard.
When the guy Jesse works for harvested our field, Micah and I used his drone to take some pictures and videos.
The wheat about to be harvested.
Micah got this picture of the sun shining through the harvest dust.
We dug many potatoes this year with a borrowed plow. (This is only part of them). We have several varieties of red, white, purple and Yukon gold.
They just poured the basement recently at Joshua’s house so we put in the stairs and framed the basement.
We then insulated the main floor. And you can see that they also did the poly.
We worked hard to finish the stone and got done just before the weather got cold and snowy!
Another event I attended in Regina on Oct. 1st, along with Mom and Dad, was Levi’s graduation from the CPA/CGA program .
We also got most of our chickens butchered at a Hutterite Colony that is a federally inspected facility and then butchered the last few along with some friends’ chickens. We haven’t dug many carrots yet so I don’t have any pictures…the snow has to melt first!
Another bit of exciting news is that Joshua got engaged on August 27 to Shaylyn Fehr. Their wedding is on January 7, 2017.
Even though we didn’t want snow now, we know that, “While the earth remaineth, seedtime and harvest, and cold and heat, and summer and winter, and day and night shall not cease.” Genesis 8:22.
On April 27, Heidi graduated from CMU in Winnipeg with a Bachelor of Music.
Heidi lined up with some of the 80 graduates. The people with pink are receiving music degrees and the white are BAs.

Receiving the degree from the lady with the interesting hat who was Heidi’s piano instructor for some of the time.
Even Grandpa (95) came all the way for the grad.
That same evening, the choir at Heidi’s church performed Hayden’s Creation with an orchestra. Heidi is beside the grey haired lady wearing light green. We got home late last night and tomorrow Heidi starts orientation for an intensive 2 year Post- Degree Registered Nurse degree at the U of S.
