Raising our family on the farm provides wonderful opportunities for gatherings. There’s always a reason to get together: work, camping trips, work, holidays, work, Sundays, ballgames, and work. You get it. But no matter the reason, getting together with cousins continues to be a highlight in the lives of our grandchildren…just as it was for their parents.

Gathering together allows our grandchildren to become friends with their cousins. Our little brood of grandchildren are each other’s best friends. They’re always happy to be together and love spending time with one another.

As the years come and go, their interests and life styles might lead them all into different paths. However, their roots will remain the same. Their memories of time on the farm, where cousins became best friends, can give them strength, during some of life’s difficult days.
