It seems like we went from Summer to Fall pretty much overnight around here. The girls soaked up their outdoor play time to the very last drop… it’s going to be a loooooong winter.
Harvest has been in full swing here in the country. Growing up in town, I just thought ‘harvest’ was a wholesome/fancy way of referring to fall… including hay rides, corn mazes, and pumpkin flavored everything. But now that I live in the country, I’ve put a little more thought into the fact that ‘harvest’ is the actual HARVESTING of row crop. (or ‘harvesting’ eggs, but why go there?)
The girls have a near obsession with tractors. And to their delight, there is almost always a tractor in view these days. “tacktah? tacktah? tacktah?” …they always says their words in groups of threes. Even when we’re driving, they’re constantly for the lookout for tractors in the fields.
A few days ago, the neighboring farmer was harvesting corn to the south of our acreage, and the girls were GLUED to the window watching the combine slowly make it’s way back and forth. Nick decided it would be fun to all hop in the pickup and drive out into the field to get a close up view of the action.
Looking through these pics, I’m realizing how much Paisley LOVES the camera, and how much Dell just doesn’t care. HA! Now that I think about it, it’s kinda always been that way. I love how different they are, and watching their personalities develop so independent of each other.
I’m not entirely sure what I’m going to do to occupy the sisters for the next 6 frozen months, but I’m raising a virtual toast to winter (with my dark roast coffee in hand)… let’s just get it over with already!
