Seriously? How was I suppossed to say "No" to that face!

The first thing he said this morning when he woke up was "I have to wear work clothes because I don't want to waste time changing after school!"

Yep, today was the first day of harvest for us - and he was so excited he informed me "This is best day of my whole life!"

He asked if I could pick him up after school so that he didn't have to "think about it" on the bus, wasting time not riding in the combine!  But quite honestly I was just as excited as him and at noon when we were almost ready to start I just headed on over to school and picked him up - he was so grateful I got a spontaneous hug  in the school office (this is big from him - like his Dad PDA is not his thing)!

And he spent the rest of the day farming!

And I truly believe he learned as much out of school for today than he would in school!


  1. We aren't quite ready, but we should be in the fields soon. Have a safe and bountiful harvest!

  2. It is so like my son growing up just couldn't wait to get home and start working. He is still farming Get in their blood.
    Have a safe harvest

  3. You are the coolest mom ever. He will remember that day forever. Seriously, my brother still talks about when my mom would come get him early to help in the field.

  4. Good mom!
    Don't you love unsolicited gratitude from your kids? Makes up for all the times I've been called a big meanie...
