Our blank canvas
The sculpting begins
Returning to my past:
I grew up about 8 miles from here. Back in the olden days when I was just a little girl, this piece of land was a huge sugar beet farm. It was owned by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. Our church is really big on helping others in need and helping them help themselves.
The sugar beet farm was used to grow beets that were turned into sugar. The sugar was then shared with members who needed help. Our part of the deal was to thin and weed the beets.
This farm was literally acres big and to a little girl like me, it was ominous. The rows went on forever and ever. I thinks it's pretty cool to be building on a piece of my own history.
I think of that little girl all dirty and discouraged...who would have thought she would one day return to build her dream house on the very spot she so long ago dreaded!
My sister shared a photo of the beet farm. I'm not in it, but it shows members from our Ward (Congregation).
