Knolltop Farm Wife

Welcome to my blog! I'm a wife, mother of four and a self-employed freelance writer. I live on a dairy farm with my family and I enjoy sharing our life with family, friends and anyone else who wants to visit the farm. There's no telling what the I will write about from day to day, but hopefully you'll be enriched when you stop by! Have a wonderfully blessed day!

Pulling it off

After the cows were milked, I was washing the milking system to make sure it's nice and clean so we can ship clean milk. As I was standing in the milkhouse looking out the window I spotted one of my favorite pictures. JW was in the pickup which was chained to Jake's Allis Chalmers and they were pulling the Allis off. JW had to get out several times to give Jake instruction, but when it was all said and done, the Allis was started and Jake was driving it around. It's amazing to me how fast they grow up. Last year I would've have let Jake drive that tractor 10 feet without someone responsible with him. Now he is driving it quite capably and it's a beautiful sight to see. One thing that will make a mothers' heart melt faster than butter in a hot frying pan is to see her children cooperating to accomplish one common goal, without any adult involvement. Life is good.
