Harvest Time!

This time of year is a busy one for farmers. Christian spends a lot of time checking in with his farmers to see how the year has turned out. In his spare time, he even gets in on a little harvest himself. Christian helped one of his farmers the other day by driving grain cart for him to help keep the combines moving along quickly. My boys have been dying to go out and see the corn and the combines for the last couple of weeks. We took advantage of Christian helping the other day and went and took some treats and drinks to the guys working. Our timing wasn't the best because they had just broke down when we got there, but the boys got to ride on the tractor with their dad and the farmer made sure that Carson got to ride in the combine with him even if it was just to the house to get fixed! They had lots of fun "helping" fix the tractor, playing with the ears of corn that were stuck in the combine, looking at the cows, and riding in the mule. They were in heaven and I wasn't sure I was going to get them to go home with me!

What handsome little boys! I bet it was a struggle to get them to come back home with you after so much excitement at the farm! Mine would probably still be there! LOL!
