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!

Happy Birthday Ginny!

It's cloudy and dare I say...we had snow falling this morning during chores! I'm not that excited about snow yet. I've still got to mow the yard one last time and really, I don't want snow yet.

This is a very special day at Four Dot Dairy in Joliet, Montana. The matriarch of that ranch is turning the big 50 today! Yes, my wonderful sister, Virginia Stene is now a half century old! She won't mind me telling her fact, she should be proud of it. She is a beautiful woman who is so accomplished. She has done more in 50 years than most do in a life time. She not only is a stay at home mom of five boys but she has homeschooled her boys and three of them have graduated. She is also a horse breeder and breaks and trains her own horses, she now has a dairy where she retails their milk and besides that she has a homeschool choir, plays the piano at church and does a whole host of other things. I should do a story on her, I could sell that story to any farm publication, the homeschooling pubs, a few horse magazines and any Christian outlet could use it as well. Just think how much money I could make off my sister!!!!!! :)

Honestly, she is an amazing person and I'm so lucky to have her as my sister!

And I almost forgot! MSU Beat U of M! That's the best birthday present she could ever want!

It sounds like you have a pretty neat family all around, Melissa, as it seems to me you are a special person, too ;)

By the way, I will add a prayer for a van for you! We needed one earlier this year, and while it didn't come free, God did provide exactly the right amount of funds (via this years hay sales) at exactly the right time! His timing is perfect, isn't it? LOL...and I always say, He always provides us with just the right amount - not enough to get in trouble with, but definately enough to live our lives and then some.

I sure enjoy your blog (and your column in the Farmers Advance)
