Teacher Mahlon’s column will return next week.  He’s really busy right now preparing for a new addition to his house. Well, yes, he is building a new addition to his house, but that is for a new addition.  It’s not really my news to share, but he gave me permission to let you all know that he and Marietta are expecting their fifth child sometime in early October.  So congratulations to both of them! I guess very soon I can swap stories with Mahlon about newborns:), although he has a four child head-start on me.  Still, best wishes to Mahlon and Marietta as they await the arrival of another.  The above photo shows some of the work he is doing on his house.   And here are some other scenes from their farmstead.  Note the phone shed that he uses next to the corn, the corn stalks tower over the shed this time of year!

Mahlon’s column will return next week.

    Congrats to Mahlon on #5…., now Kevin, you have some catching up to do…are you and Rachael having a girl or boy, or is it a secret :) make sure you send us all an email and a picture….I am so happy for you. Kids are a gift from GOD and I only had (2) and love them so much…wouldn’t take all the money in the world for them….but wouldn’t give you 2 cents for (2) more just like them…. LOL…..not really, just heard this from someone else and thought it was too cute to not share :)

    Looking forward to Mahlon’s next article and info about the little addition…..

  2. Congratulations on the pending new additions to Teacher Mahlon–as well as you, Kevin! I was wondering if it is Amish superstition or custom or something else entirely, that we seemingly never hear of women being pregnant. All of a sudden we will read that Lovina had a new baby. Just curious; have never seen it discussed before.

    • Lori, thank you. I think it’s more custom than superstition, a pregnancy is a blessed event, but maybe not one that is trumpeted a lot in advance…
