"Got teens? You lucky dogs.
Spend time with them; enjoy them; listen to them; and love them.
They are the most incredible people, these emerging adults,
and they can become the best friends you’ll ever have."
~Diana Waring, Reaping the Harvest. The Bounty of Abundant-Life Homeschooling~As this post's title states, it's been a VERY BIG WEEK here! And I'm going to hold on to it just a wee bit longer since what I have to share really belongs in Bryan's story, which is my "I Wish I Could Go To A Farm" series. I'll be typing that up this evening, and will get it published ASAP. If you haven't already read that series, you can find it in my sidebar under "Categories." In just a little while, I'll be turning it into a book, so you may want to read it now, while it won't cost anything! :-)

Other news, Bryan got his driver's license on Tuesday...yahoo!!!!!!!!! I haven't seen a smile that big on his face since Mark Johnson told him he could be on the Ag team at Kline Creek Farm! We're very proud of him.
Nathan is pretty much on summer break, as he only has this last chapter of Economics left. He had such a brutal academic year, it's nice to see him so relaxed! That said, just today he told me that he's looking forward to his summer classes at the community college starting up "cuz it'll give me something to do for part of the day." Amazing how they get used to the workload, and then when it's gone, they start to get bored! Part of it, I think, is because of the fast-paced schedule Bryan has for this summer (you'll read up on that in the "I Wish I Could Go To A Farm" post), so Nathan is alone in all that leisure time!
Last but not least, I have to brag on Nathan for doing a great job sharpening at his first Farmers Market last Saturday! Because Bryan and I have already established a pretty big customer base, there were quite a few folks that showed up with their kitchen knives, so he did well. He's going to have to work up to a faster pace, though, and pretty quickly. He was swamped, and Bryan helped him out when things overwhelmed...Bryan is super-fast. Nathan will get there, though. Bryan got super fast because he had to last summer at his markets! But overall, Nathan did great. I forgot the camera, so don't have any photos to share...but I'll bring it next week and will try to post some in my next TTAT.
Proud mama here. :-D Hope you have a blessed week!
