Thursday, April 1st


We are so pleased with the quality of applications this year.  Thank you, thank you, thank you for sending us such great applications!  As mentioned earlier, we try to let everyone know between April 1st and April 15th as to whether or not we have a spot for them this year.  Unfortunately, acres are down nationwide, which means it will be even harder than normal to choose from the many excellent candidates.


Also, this week we were apprised of some new requirements by one of the seed companies that we work with, which also impacts our hiring decisions.  With all of this in mind, it is looking like it will be closer to April 15th when we are reasonably able to get out notifications as to whom we can hire.  Thank you for your patience at this time!


**For those of you who have been kind to email and ask about my dad (whom we have brought into our home and are caregiving 24/7), the long, hard, beautiful road continues.  The reality of Alzheimer’s hits us every day, and along with a difficult bout of pneumonia last week, it continues to take a toll on him.  We are thankful for the promise of heaven, and for a Savior who makes it possible for that promise to be a certainty.
