It was a typical day of sitting outside in the afternoon and
Levi controlling how much snack his brother could have sharing a snack.
Griffin doesn’t seem to mind that his brother thinks he is in charge of everything he does. He is just glad to be fed.
Joel was harvesting and pretty soon the combine started picking corn in the field around our house. Griffin was waving away. He waves at anything and anyone now.
Levi, however, got on the phone and called his daddy. He was trying to figure out how he could get in on the harvesting. Just watching and waving wasn’t going to work for him.
Pretty soon Levi’s uncle drove up in the grain cart to pick him up. He’s a pretty lucky boy to be able to pick up the phone and the next thing he knows a tractor is picking him up in his backyard.
Levi was so happy. He loves everything about farming. And he has loved spending time with his Uncle James this summer.
They waved goodbye and drove off.
Poor Griffin always gets left behind. Someday you will get to ride too, buddy.
We stayed outside and watched the action from a distance.
Corn harvest was so early this year…they started the last week in July. Usually they aren’t combining corn until the beginning of September. Crazy. It is going to be an unusually quiet fall around here.
Levi called his dad almost everyday of harvest to see if I could bring him out to the field. Joel usually drives truck during harvest…Levi loves riding in the truck too. His favorite truck is the blue one…yes, he even has a favorite semi truck.
He takes everything about the farm so seriously.
I’m so thankful that Levi’s daddy doesn’t mind having a little tag a long.
Corn harvest 2012…done.
