It is our last full day on The Farm in Iowa. My father spent his summers and many holidays here growing up. My grandmother and great-grandfather were born and raised here. I have so many memories here, and have so enjoyed making many new ones with my little family. My sweet baby Chloë begins the 6th generation of stewards of this land. Her great-great-great-grandfather John Magnus Heline settled here in 1871 after he and his sweetheart Clara immigrated from Sweden. I love this place.
And I've taken hundreds of pictures, and will sort through them when we get back to Idaho, and get a few of them up.
My dad and sister have both written up some good blog posts on being here.
