Happy Birthday Mom!

Happy Birthday, Mom!
We love you so much and hope you have a wonderful day. 
We appreciate your constant love and care for our family. 
You are a wonderful mother.
 
Many daughters have done virtuously, 
but thou excellest them all.
Give her of the fruit of her hands; 
and let her own works praise her in the gates.”

A Visit with the Steiners

 
The Steiner family, fellow farmers from Illinois, recently came through our area. We “met” the Steiners through KBR magazine a few years ago, and we all enjoyed getting to spend a little time with them, swapping stories and sharing fellowship.

 

 
This little guy found a little friend!
May the Lord bless your family!
 
“O continue thy lovingkindness unto them that know thee;
and thy righteousness to the upright in heart.”

Thankful for Freedom!

We hope you had a wonderful Independence day with your family. The Declaration of Independence was signed by fifty-six men 238 years ago. They, along with countless others, risked their lives to establish freedom in the United States of America, and this document still stands as the core foundation of our country. We were grateful to gather with friends on the Fourth of July, and remember this heritage we have been given as a nation.

Jonathan and his friend John enjoy mechanical work, and for the past several weeks,
they each have been making a racing mower to race on the Fourth of July.
Here they introduce each other’s creations to one another and wonder whose will win the race…

And they’re off! Both did a great job creating their mowers. Jonathan’s won for speed.

Picking Apricots

A neighbor kindly offered for us to pick apricots from his tree. They were delicious!
This one is good!

An Evening of Fellowship

One evening last week we were invited to a surprise birthday party. It was wonderful to gather with many friends to celebrate Ashley’s life and love for the Lord.

Happy birthday, Ashley!

Dutch Oven Cooking Adventures

 
One of mom’s goals for this summer was for us to learn how to cook in a Dutch oven over a campfire. We have not had too much success with this in the past, but it is a good and helpful skill to know. So one night a week, she assigned us to dry different recipes and cook dinner together in pairs. The first Dutch Oven dinner fell to Sarah and Samuel to cook together. Despite their efforts to cook a delicious Bryant Family Farm beef roast, you can see the results above. The lining they used in the Dutch Oven caught fire and burned everything in the pot.
 

This week Rachael and Jonathan had a turn, and learning from previous mistakes, their pot roast turned out excellent. After a days’ hard outdoor work, everyone gathered to enjoy a hearty meal out on the porch together. The tasty “campfire” flavor was wonderful!

 
 

What are some of your Dutch Oven cooking experiences? Do you have a favorite recipe you have tried? We’d be interested to hear!

Family time and conversations over dinner
Family is a blessing!
“Every man also to whom God hath given riches and wealth,
and hath given him power to eat thereof, and to take his portion,
and to rejoice in his labour; this is the gift of God.
