It turned out that our well is not dead, it just ran out of water... So, good news, the well has water! I still don't understand how the whole thing works, but we are so thankful that we have water.
Some dear friends of ours arrived here from Texas yesterday. Since their son and our little William are John Deere fans, we decided to take a drive out to Moline to visit the John Deere Pavilion and the John Deere Headquarters. Both places allow children to climb and play on the equipment, so William was in John Deere Heaven all day long. Here are a few pictures from our trip.
