Knee High by 4th of July

Saturday, July 4, 2009

Sorry its been a horribly long time since I've added to our blog. I take pictures almost DAILY, so I'll start posting more! Happy 4th of July!!!! A special thank you goes out to soldiers serving for our freedom, especially our friend, Stan, currently over seas from his wife, Mandy, daughter, Taryn, and family and friends so we can choose what to do with our daily lives. Its been a drizzly, rainy day, but we've been having fun. Unfortunatly, no fabulous Iowa sweet corn.:( Anyway, my tradition every year on the Fourth of July is to take Nathan and the kids' picture next to our corn. Why you ask? An old wives tale was if your corn was knee high by the Fourth of July, you had a great crop. Here's the corn next to our house. Its been doing wonderful! I did hold my breath....it survived two heavy wind storms within two days of each other. It should tassle in the next week. YEAH!
