The Burwash family is sitting outside at the farm, checking out the newest addition to the family.

Sarah Rabel writes this February 16, 2017:

“Today, my mind has rested on Grandma Burwash [Carolyn Burwash], who passed away this day longer ago than I realized until my aunt Mary [Mary Burwash Chalberg posted a remembrance. I have thought of her strength, her incredible cooking, baking, and canning, her spotless home, her music, her embroidery, her literature, her teaching, her dahlias, her barn boots… And most of all, I have thought of her voice. Here is a photo of her (in the checkered dress) at Coffee Time in the field.”

The picture was probably taken by Matt Kjelstand. In the photo is Steve Burwash (wearing the hat), Kathleen Burwash looking at the baby Mary, and Martin Burwash checking out something in his hand. Behind is Velma Kjelstad and Matt’s sister, Martha. And, of course, Major the dog.
