*a "not so wordy" Wednesday*
I can't help but smile when I look back…
‘cause I was lucky and I didn't even know it… growin' up like that.
I've done more than my fair share of second-guessing when it comes to my parenting skills and decisions over the years...
But, when sorting through old photos, I see that our girls had experiences and learning opportunities growing up on the farm that they wouldn’t have been afforded had they grown up elsewhere.

Those little girls of Homestead Hill are now grown-ups. Both are responsible, married homeowners. One has her own business and the other has a baby on the way. They are both known for their reliability, resourcefulness and willingness to lend a helping hand.
And, we are proud to say we had a part in that.
Children need to learn how to work.
Farm life is great for kids!
Learning opportunities abound on a farm that don’t exist elsewhere.
