I forgot that summer is busy.

 We had a great weekend. Busy, but full of lots of fun things. I realized this weekend that I forgot how busy summer is. I was thinking that things were winding down and we would be enjoying a relaxing summer…but really the busyness is just beginning around here. Summer + farming = busy. And I am not even the one doing all the hard work!
 Wheat harvest started on Monday. This is the earliest harvest they have ever had. But even with harvest under way we managed to find time over the weekend to dip our toes in the water. We enjoyed spending time with both of our families and ate some really yummy food too.
Levi has been getting in on lots of the harvest fun. He thinks it is great and wishes he didn’t have to come home to take a nap or go to bed at night. This evening we ended up staying home and playing while daddy worked. It was tough prying him away from the harvest crew.

 There were combines and tractors and trucks driving around everywhere today. Busy, busy. Levi wasn’t the only one excited to watch the combine speed down our country road tonight. 

Somehow I managed to plan a garage sale the week of wheat harvest. I guess it is best to get all the craziness out of the way all at once, right? So tomorrow I am going to try to de-clutter the house as much as is possible in one day. (Does that tell you how prepared I am for the garage sale?) Wish me luck. I am trying to tell myself that it will all be worth it in the end.
Wheat harvest and garage sales. Let the busyness begin.
