Today after church, Gary and I went to lunch with our sweet friends, Phil and Lydia. Phil is a business owner, and also a farmer. They were talking about wheat harvest, which is happening now.
Aaron has been loving a new game, Farm Simulator, so I asked if maybe we could come out and look at the farm.
“Sure!” Phil said. “Aaron can ride with me on the combine.”
That was so much more than I expected! How exciting!
Lydia picked me and Aaron up later, and off we went, headed west. The golden waves of Kansas grain are so beautiful right now. All along the way, here and there, we could see the combines out in the fields harvesting the wheat.
We got to the field, and soon there came Phil. As he emptied some wheat, Aaron followed him to the combine.
Soon he was climbing the ladder.
And off they went!
How fun to watch that huge combine do its job! And to know that Aaron was sitting up there!
What a fun day for Aaron!
Thank you, Phil and Lydia, for being so kind and for giving Aaron another first-time and exciting experience.
