Micah’s Grad!

June 28th, 2018 we had a houseful of guests for Micah’s Grade 12 Graduation!


Josh, Shaylyn and Joanna were the greeters and guest book attendants.


Heidi played beautiful harp music while guests arrived.


Siblings and parents shared scriptures and highlights from Micah’s life.


The Micah song!


Slide show of Micah’s life.


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!

Summer and Fall!

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!

Jesse's grad picture

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

Cherry picking went well except for this variety which had a lot of mold so we just picked a few.


Picking apples

Drone picture

When the guy Jesse works for harvested our field, Micah and I used his drone to take some pictures and videos.


The wheat

The sun

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.


The basement

They just poured the basement recently at Joshua’s house so we put in the stairs and framed the basement.


Insulation and poly

We then insulated the main floor. And you can see that they also did the poly.


The house

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.
