Old Threshers

This year was the twelfth annual year we've been able to be at the Old Threshers' Reunion. It is always such a fun special time!!! Getting to visit with people that we only see once a year, seeing all the antique tractors, smelling the unique aromas you only find there, watching the horses, the opportunity to be 'neighbors' with Grandpa and Grandma Hager since they camp next to us, and oh, so much more! 

This year was incredibly special as our whole family was able to be there. Alan, Rachel, Andrew & Kori came up Wednesday. Josiah & Abi with their children, and Dan, Bethany and Arianna came Friday. Then we were all together Saturday. And I guess I will let most of the pictures speak for themselves.

One of our favorite places at Old Threshers! 

Log Village has a living history woodworking shop where you can watch the skilled craftsmen create beautiful pieces, or you can experience using carpentry tools yourself!

Every day I will bless You, And I will praise Your name forever and ever.

And the answer to the question

"What do Andrew and Susanna not have that all the rest of us siblings do have?"


They are the only siblings that do not have the letter 'H' in their names.

I was quite surprised how many of you got it right! Way to go!!! :)

The Lord your God in your midst, The Mighty One, will save; He will rejoice over you with gladness, He will quiet you with His love, He will rejoice over you with singing."

Here's a little quiz for you to try and figure out...

What do Andrew and Susanna not have that all the rest of us siblings do have?
*hint - You don't need to know our family personally to figure this out.

"How good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity!"
Psalms 133:1
