Let's Get Ready To...Wrestle

~Levi's Sophomore Year~

These are a few of the "Mom Faves" from the first half of the season.  After the Christmas break, he'll be back at it until the end of February.  We are blessed at East High with great coaches, kids and parents...and I'm really proud of Levi!

October Snow

October 6:

We waited all summer for a rain. Thrilled with the snow! It melted off by the next day--but what a blessing!

Lukas and Levi
Levi's is still "in the velvet"!

Mike filled his tag,too.

AUGUST: School, Sweet Corn and a Blue Moon

The first day of Levi's Sophomore year at East High in
Cheyenne.  It has been well worth the $ in gas to drive
the daily 100 mile round trip.
The wrestlers supporting the football team!

My garden's sweet corn when nuts! Lots of boiling
water and a sticky kitchen has yielded a freezer
full to enjoy this winter!

August 31: The second full moon of the month.
When two full moons occur in a single month it is referred
to as a "Blue Moon".

A Long, Dry, Hot Summer

Replacement heifers.  One got very good at doing the
"Limbo" and found her way to Grandma Mary's garden
where she helped to herself to the sweet corn.

By Summers end all that was left was sagebrush,
resulting in the daily chore of feeding hay.

As the drought continues, we face some major decisions.
Sell the bred cows? Sell the replacement heifers?
Keep this years weanling heifers?
Sell them all....

2012~The year God grew a crop without rain~

June 25-July 4
The first time in history that farmers in our area harvested this early.
Normally, the combines are rolling the third week in July.

Our chuck wagon.  Mary Kay kept us well fed.

~Harvest sunsets~

Harvest just isn't for the daytime!

Inside the combine looking down at the header.

At the elevator. My signal to raise the hoist on my truck.

We spent several days cutting in the smoke from all the fires to the West and South of us.  Can't imagine what it was like at the fires.


A nice Muley we've been tracking all over Romsa Farms!
