Walker celebrated a birthday this past week and I thought it would be fun to sit down with him and ask him a few questions about his life.
As we are sitting on the back patio...

Twelve years ago, Walker was in a hurry to enter this world.
Now...Walker is hardly ever in a hurry.
We hear 'I want to" more often than "I can't".
As much as I can't bear to have my baby grow up, it has been so fun watching Walker grow up.
For all the challenges of this season, I am loving this pre-teen stage.
Walker we love you...
And, I am sorry you had to do hay on your birthday...

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.
