Do you ever wonder??
Our area was settled by homesteaders. They left a few reminders that they were here.
They left the fields, that are still farmed today by the ancestors. Homes, and barns , that once were full of life.
Homes sit empty but what story could they tell? Did the family gather on Thanksgiving? Were babies born here? Did they put up a tree and have Goose for Christmas dinner? Were the times here, happy times?
The old school is silent now, accept for when the wind blows through the missing windows. what was the teacher like? Was she one of the young girls that grew up in this area? Did they use the school for church? Was this the gathering spot for the socials?
Yes, I have many questions. If you stand there, and listen you can hear the sounds of the past. You can almost see the families that put in so much work to tame a wild land.
