guys have been busy working ground with the plow, disc and springtooth.
It has turned hot and dry, so Steve has had to start the irrigation
again. Earlier this month it was too wet and cool to work ground
now it is too hot and the crops are drying up. We farmers are
never satisfied with the weather.
Our school started August 20, so our help has gone back to school.
One of the boys is coming out after school which helps us a lot.
Steve thinks by the middle of next week we should have all the
wheat ground covered.
Sarah has gone back to Sterling College to start her Senior year.
She is trying to qualify to teach both in elementary and secondary
schools. So she is going back early to start on her elementary
student teaching. She is in the Lyons, Ks, district with a first
grade teacher. Ashley also started back to school August 20 as
Ashley and I walked down to our creek to see if the beaver was
still there. We have had a beaver on our ground for about a year.
We weren't sure if the previous floods had made it go, but it
looked like it was still there. He had moved his dam down the
creek some. We have never seen the beaver, but it has been interesting
to see all the work it has done. Fortunately it has not done much
damage to our ground. Some beavers have flooded fields with their
dams or have ruined shelter belts from chopping down too many
