Farm Fresh

… Fresh on to the farm. Here is an occassional chronicle of a new family in a small town.

Porter – Day Two

You Meet: Great Grandma Annie, Great Aunt Gail, Lene, Natalie and Tanner

Firsts: Dad drives us home! He is nervous. We go home to Thorp and the Porter Store!

Notes: Mom and dad don’t know what the heck to do but we are happy. We don’t know quite how to sleep with you yet so it’s a tough night. You fall asleep on dad’s chest so he stays up and watches movies ‘cuz he doesn’t want to move you.

Weather: sunny and perfect again – 40-50’s?
