I have been sorting through my Grandmothers photos and scanning them so that they can be shared with all our family members. There are so many great memories that come back as I peruse these photos. I can still remember the smell of the woodsmoke in the air and the feel of the cool wind when we walked through the fields. Grandpa and Grandma raised corn for their livestock. Tons of it. Not only that, Grandma also raised Indian corn that she would sell at the Lords Acre sale that their church participated in, in the fall.
Grandpa was a guard at the State Prison that bordered their farm, but he was also a farmer and raised cows and chickens. There was always a horse or two, just for riding too.
These photos were dated 1968. That is my little sister and I raking leaves, which we probably just jumped in after the fact! I feel so blessed to have had such wonderful grandparents in my life. There was so much love at there home.
