I can't believe my baby turns 15 this week!
Time keeps flying by and he is making me feel older and older.
I asked Walker if he wanted to do his birthday interview this year, and he said yes. He is definitely a teenager and had trouble getting past the one word answers, but I will take all the teenage conversations I can get. He may not let me do this next year...

Life is changing at lightning speed and Walker is growing up just as fast. He has matured so much this past year and really found his groove.
He is most comfortable at home, so the corona virus has been good for him. A slower pace, Mom and Dad at home, online schooling and he has just soared.
This summer looks much different for us, but already, I have watched Walker just being a boy.
We may not actually be baling hay on your birthday...but we will be baling hay when we celebrate your birthday. It wouldn't be your birthday without hay.
Happy Birthday Walker!
Hello! I am Heather... the city girl turned mom to manure loving country boys. My husband and I both grew up in the city, but spent weekends visiting grandparents in the country. We are first generation farmers who learn best by almost always doing things the hard way. I hope you enjoy following along with our adventures down on the farm.
