Farm Life

We arrived in IL today. We went through a town called Cairo, that looked like everyone packed up and left. The buildings were mostly standing, but there were few people -- like a ghost town.

On the farm we got a tour, the went to one of the fields to let the boys pick some sweet corn. After picking they shucked it and then dug some potatoes.

Dinner was all farm fresh. While we were eating the family began to call. There are 76 within 8 miles. Only a portion came by, more will be by to view us on Saturday for dinner.

After dinner the boys tried to put fireflys into a jar, not much luck, but a fun time.
