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!

No rain delays here

Good Morning from a beautiful, sunny Knolltop!

We had more rain yesterday, a very nice steady rain...but it didn't keep us from heading to Bronson for the boys baseball game. Jake and I were the lucky spectators yesterday while Bobby and Sarah stayed home to do chores. I was excited as I watched Luke put on his catcher's gear and JW walk to the mound. It has been a while since I've seen them pitch and throw together and I tell you it was a proud moment for this mama! I started to get worried when Luke approached the pitchers mound, he's been known to chew JW out if he's not performing how he knows he should. But then I relaxed when I also saw the coach headed to the mound too, I knew Luke would be nice and there wouldn't be any fights on the field!

I don't mean to sound like Luke is mean or anything, he just expects a certain level of play from his older brother and actually from the whole team. I know for a fact when he approaches the mound to encourage other pitchers he's not telling them they're throwing like a two year old!

They lost the first game, but won the second. Luke caught both games and after JW got done pitching he went to center field and made some awesome catches...yes...I'm bragging!

Yesterday as I laid down for my siesta I was drifting off the sleep when I heard a calf mooing outside. At first I thought there were heifers out, but then I heard Jake's voice and realized he was walking his calf. Only on the farm could someone go to sleep listening to a boy and his calf conversing on their daily walk.
