Go to the Ant August 7, 2009

Proverbs 6:6-8

Go to the ant, you sluggard;
consider its ways and be wise!

7 It has no commander,
no overseer or ruler,

8 yet it stores its provisions in summer
and gathers its food at harvest.

Last Saturday we were invited to take a tour of an old windmill here in England.  It has been restored and is in working order.  It was quite a sight to see.  It was the opening day of wheat harvest and they at the Denver Windmill always celebrate that special day with an educational and fun day for the kids.

First the kids were able to see the horse bring the wheat on the cart to the windmill.  Next they saw them put the wheat into a machine that separates the good wheat from the bad.  The good wheat is placed in a bag for the mill while the bad wheat is used to feed the chickens.  The bag of good wheat was taken to the mill and put into the machine to grind it.  They showed the different varieties of flour that can be developed from the grain.

After that was over, they got to take some flour that had just been milled and make their own bread.  The lady helped guide them as they added each ingredient.  When they were done, they gave the lady the bread and she placed it into her huge bakery ovens.  When all was said and done, the kids actually got to see how the wheat in our backyard becomes the bread on their sandwiches.

It was an awesome day with lots of fun for everyone.  (Including me who went to a nearby Antique shop on the way home..LOL)

God is so good!  Here are some pics of that day.  I hope you can enjoy them.  Be patient, it may take some time for them to load.  There were too many to upload so you will have to click on the camera below to see them.  I will try to post some to Facebook as well.
