Chloë on the farm

I’ve written before about our family farm in Iowa, where my Swedish ancestors settled down. My little niece (the sixth generation) had her first explorations of the place at our most recent family reunion. She got to drive the farm truck, ride the tractor, celebrate her second birthday, walk the train tracks, and play with toys and books purchased by her great-great grandmother.

  1. Katie: Discovered you via David Lansing who is channeling you from time to time – like what I’m finding. I was a very little girl in Iowa way back in the 40’s when my grandparents still had the “Homeplace.” All gone now, but I went to the same two-room schoolhouse my grandmother attended in Badger, IA. Like your writing. I’ll be back.
