Planting soybeans...

This past week we began planting our 2012 soybean crop.  The soil is working well and the forecast is promising for more welcomed rain.  We wrapped up spraying our corn and have moved on to spraying burndown on our highly erodible land which will be planted to soybeans.  Almost all our corn is up and looks good.  The recent 85 degree weather has turned the corn from it's early pale green color to a deep and vibrant green.

Owen's last basketball game of the summer.  He loves sports! 

Last weekend Owen and Max attended the Unversity of Illinois Football Open House.  The team allows kids on the field where they can run around from station to station practicing football drills.  Owen made the Champaign News Gazette with his roar right before he hit the tackling dummy.
