although i forgot to ask him when he got home last night, i would say that nate probably thinks harvest time at the farm is better than his birthday and christmas (possibly both combined). if nothing else, it’s at least equal to birthday and christmas. he seriously looks forward to harvest time all year long. he talks about “my friend mike” as if there wasn’t a 20+ year age gap between them.
i haven’t heard all the stories from the weekend yet, but i’m sure there are many. i’m thankful that i sent his camera with him so he could capture pictures as they combined the soybeans.
i’m sure he’ll want to be a part of harvesting corn when it’s time for that!
now if only he had today off school so i could have my weekend time with him! it’s hard to give nate up when the weekends is the only time we really get good quality time with him, but i know how big of a deal harvest time is to him and it only comes once a year.
