Hello, It’s Me


It’s me.

Yes, I’m alive.

Yes, I’m doing well.

Yes, I’m still in Kansas.

Do you remember the last time I went MIA with this blog?

I do.

It had to do with this little dude.

Baby Banks

That little dude really isn’t a little dude anymore.

And he definitely lets you know that he’s NOT little.

Excuse me for a moment while I try to bottle him up. 



Ok, I’m better.

Well, would you like to take a guess where I’ve been with this latest absence?

Here’s the proof.

Two kiddos and we’re all doing fabulous.

Baby Girl joined our family in October a week before her brother’s birthday.

She was his best early birthday present.

No caption needed.

She has fallen right in line here on the farm.

In fact, right after we were released from the hospital we drove out to one of our soybean fields to check on the yields.

Oh, this little girl is going to have one great story to tell.

She’s already changed so much in the few short months she’s been with us.

I think I’ve changed, too.

So I’m back and ready to share our lives with you once again.

Thanks for joining me in this next chapter of Alive & Well in Kansas.

    1. HI! I am Julie, Neill and Boyd’s cousin. I met you at church June 2014, while visiting Aunt Carolyn. I did check you blog once or twice after you gave it to me, and I am so glad I am on the notification list! FYI, Rachel just arrived at our home this afternoon. We are so excited to have her visit a couple days and share with some friends about her ministry in China. You baby girl is beautiful and the “little Dude” is surely a great help! 🙂 Congrats! Julie Maxwell, Windsor, CO

  1. Hey, it is Julie again. I just realized later that I met you last June. No biggee. Happy Spring, in the MOT to distant future! Julie Maxwell

  2. It seems you have your hands pretty full these days! Welcome back to blogging! I live on a farm in Texas where we raise exotic gamebirds. Its never boring! I love the rural life so much that I just launched my new website http://www.ranchandfarmlands.com and I hope you will stop by and visit my blog. Please tell you friends that are looking for their own farm or ranch they can find it on my new site! Your all invited. Thanks for sharing your family with us!
