Aw Shucks!

There's something really cool about going to the backyard and picking corn off a stalk and then eating it the same day. The kids have really been enjoying it and I have say this is the best corn I have EVER had!
Evolet had fun trying to show me how to pick corn. I was doing it and she said "No, mommy. It's not like that. It's like this." She proceeded to stick her foot on the stalk and then pull as hard as she could on the ear. She fell backwards. HAHA!
They all thoroughly enjoyed shucking the corn, too.
This is what you do when you get frustrated with all the layers. Just bite through it. By the way, she ate an entire ear of corn raw...and liked it:)
Keira kept trying to shuck it backwards, but finally got the hang of it. She was proud of herself!
Evolet is a corn shucking machine! She liked doing it as fast as possible!
Their daddy's a cornhusker...for real:)


I love Evolet's hair like this:

Darren will be here on Sunday and we are sooooo excited. He is coming at just the right time. I'll admit that there are days I just don't know how I'm going to get out of bed and survive the day. I have been stretched to the limit and more stressed out than I have ever been in my entire life. I know God is faithful and will continue to be. I'm sooooooo thankful to have my husband here next week, too. Happy Weekend!


  1. Fresh corn is the best! I agree! Love all the pics of kids shucking corn! Next time we have corn I know who to call ;o) So glad that Darren will be there soon!

  2. Wow, best ever...it didn't turn out so great last year so I am looking forward to eating some maybe next week!!! So ready to be HOME. Ironic you all are so ready to be back home, here in the States! Glad you all are getting to enjoy some. That was a favorite part last year the corn, shelling green peas...esp when I didnt't have to do the planting and weeding! So happy that Darren is coming. Once we are settled you will have to bring the girls over to play.
