The boys were so excited about harvest this year. Every morning Levi would want to know what daddy was doing and when he could go help him. He would get his “work boots” on and Griffin would be right behind him getting his boots on too.
Joel is the best daddy and always lets the boys come along if he can. They will have so many great memories spending time with daddy at work.
This is how Griffin felt when we dropped Levi off and he had to come back home with me. He wasn’t a fan. We quickly realized that this year we would need to figure out a way to juggle the riding time between both of the boys.
Later that day Griffin finally got his turn. His first ride in the semi.
He was so excited when he actually got to get out of the van and we started buckling him into the carseat in the semi. ‘Truck’ is one of the few words Griffin says. He didn’t sing to Joel like Levi did, but he pointed out every truck along the way. Joel was pretty sure he said ‘truck’ about 300 times. The boys have a very patient daddy!
One harvest day Joel was running the combine. We dropped Levi off around lunch and he stayed with Joel all afternoon. In the early evening I brought out dinner for the guys and found Levi in the combine like this. He must have been working too hard!
You would think we live in the middle of nowhere…but it’s just Kansas. We go to great lengths to get our texts to send around here. If anyone out there works for at&t we would love for you to put a cell phone tower in one of our fields! 😉
We all rode along this time. It was a little claustrophic for me but I am so thankful for the time spent squeezed in with my little family. Such sweet memories these will be. Oh, and I think we had one of our best wheat crops ever! We are praising God for His provision and a great harvest…and the boys already can’t wait until corn harvest!
