Rob and I were very blessed this summer of 2008, to be able to spend a summer in my hometown in Iowa, working on my family's farm. We got dirtier than we have in years; lived through the Iowa Flood of '08; followed the crops from seedlings to first frost; and finally got out in the fields and harvested the year's work. Along the way, we helped build a barn, enjoyed some beautiful summer days, renovated the machine shed; and learned to ride motorcycles. We stayed around so long, that it actually snowed on us! The photos below are from multiple trips home over the years, but tell the story of a hardworking Iowa farm family.
