Corn harvest happened at the end of August. The boys were so excited this year. They wanted to pack their lunches and head to the farm as soon as they woke up. Every single day.
These boys don’t know what a good daddy they have. Pretty much every single day he would let them pack their lunches and come ride for at least a little while…and sometimes for the whole afternoon.
These two know everything about the farm and corn harvest. Sometimes when people ask me a question I have to turn to Levi and ask him if he knows…he usually does.
Joel was driving truck for most of harvest this year. Levi loved opening up the hopper on the grain trailer to let the corn out. And both boys would sweep up the leftover corn. Then it was back into the truck to pick up another load. Back and forth all day.
I wish this picture could have sound attached to it. Griffin was so funny whenever Joel would back up the truck to unload. He would yell, “STOP!” as loud as he could until the truck stopped in the right spot. He thought he was being so helpful. Joel totally couldn’t even hear him.
Joel keeps most of the corn they grow for cattle feed. They store it in bins on the farm.
This is where the truck pulls in…you can see some of the grain bins too. Thumbs up from Levi. He always tells Joel that he’s doing a great job. Such a little encourager.
Levi got to ride out in the field with my brother, Owen, some too. He even learned how to talk on the radio this year. I wish I could have heard his conversations. That boy is a talker.
You can follow the boys’ farming adventures on Instagram too. I am @jessmcclenahan if you want to follow along.
Corn harvest is over but wheat planting has begun. This is Joel’s busiest time of year. And with so many little boys wanting to ride, Jake hasn’t had a turn yet…until last night. Jake finally got to go on his first tractor ride. It put him right to sleep, of course.
