friday

There is nothing better than getting to ride in the combine 
with Dad on a Friday afternoon.

At least there is nothing better if you are a little boy.

Joel was combining soy beans in a field right by our house this afternoon,
so we went out to visit him.

Levi played in the dirt for a while until the combine drove up.
Playing in the dirt was pretty awesome too.

But when we climbed into the combine Levi was in heaven.
He sat still like this for almost twenty minutes.
Seriously, twenty minutes...
and he hardly moved.
I think that might have been a first. :o)

He did occasionally look back at us and smile.
And then he realized he could crawl around...
and eat the dirt of the ground...
and touch everything is sight...
and he was back to his old self.

He thought it was pretty great to drive with dad too.

He told his dad how awesome his combine was.

And then he tried to take over.

I love that this is just the beginning of so many memories 
that Levi and Joel will have together.

Have a great weekend!

Boys who get to grow up on farms are lucky boys indeed. You sure have a cutie there.

I love this. Since I am married to a part farmer, part corn seed salesman who grew up farming, I can identify so much with this part of your life.
Furthermore, in your post studying about Isaiah in BSF (which I also did when I lived in Amarillo in the late 90's before marrying and moving up to Dalhart - it is awesome teaching isn't it?)I am touched by your heart regarding your vision of God, your hopes for the future, and your desire to never go back to settling for less than what God has for you. Your story has struck me deeply, as I know it has so many others. I will never begin to understand your heartache and loss, but I do get your heart on not wanting to settle. I am there myself in some hard situations within my own family.
I love to come over to your blog and catch up on you. You have a beautiful family.
