Summer’s must have accessories

Yesterday my husband promised a surprise for his girls when he returned home from work. The waiting was difficult, but worth it. He returned with some fashionable accessories no young girl should be without!

Shovels, hoe, and cultivator, oh my! Is the Green Acres theme song running through your mind? Josh has them weeding sometimes at 6:30 in the morning. Which brings us to our next must-have. The family food plot.

Of course, the most well dressed yards of the year should always feature a few free range hens.

A few corn fields, just for show, wouldn’t hurt!

It may be snobbery, but I can’t imagine any place without a Kate and her Lamby Bam Bam.

Father-son bonding is always in fashion.

Finally, if you really want to knock ’em dead, throw in a fiery Nebraska sunset, courtesy of the Creator of the Universe.

  4. Just happened upon your blog…….and really enjoyed what I’ve read here!!
    You have a very sweet family, and your obvious love for the Lord, your husband and children is precious!! We’re a large, home-schooling, home-steading family from KS.
    God Bless you and your family!!
