Summer Snapshots

What have I been up to lately? Here are a few glimpses into our life the last couple weeks.

Apple pie—yum ;)


A trip to the hayfield…..


Faith had to check the hay like Papa was to make sure it was dry enough to bale.


Faith “helping” me getting the pickles ready for their three hour chill.

Bread and butter pickles—my first batch ever. I’ve helped Mom make them over the years but these were my first to make alone.

We also made apple pie filling the same day we made pickles. I can’t wait to try it out!

Meet Fergus, the latest addition to the JHR spread ;) He is just a few hours old here.

And last but not least, here is Jacob and his little sweetheart being silly:

  1. Happy Independence Day, Rebecca! I hope you all had a memorable, fun time celebrating our liberties!

    Just wanted to tell you that I watched your wedding slideshow and found it really sweet. I could tell that you chose to keep your wedding sweetly simple, focusing on God and family. : ) Thanks for sharing it on your blog! Your dress was beautiful, too.

    Blessings in Christ,

  2. Thank you Petra ;) I'm glad you enjoyed the slideshow.
    I've enjoyed having you around the blog so much--you are always such an encouragement <3
