I don’t know that I learned a lot in grad. school, but I gained a generous friend.
Keri took a long road trip with her two adorable boys to come visit us. As if driving a long way to see us wasn’t enough of a treat, she brought Eileen’s cookies and even talked me into letting her buy supper. She’s a friend that makes me want to be a better and more generous friend. After she left I kept thinking of all she’d done for me and felt like I’d done nothing in return.
If you’re wondering what you might do when you visit a town with less than 150 people, I’ll recap what we did.
To help break up their trip and give us something interesting to do, Elliana, Wyatt, our friend Meredith and I met the travelers at Cody Park. We checked out the trains, playground, animals and cheap ice cream cones. We would’ve liked to enjoy some rides, but apparently they don’t open until 5 on weekdays.
The evening included trampoline jumping, answering some of Keri’s farming questions, getting the kids to bed, and a walk after dark for Keri and I. The next morning, after Elliana and Miles pretended to get married, we took a walk to check on the firemen washing the fire trucks.
Then we decided the weather wasn’t right for water activities, so we braved the extreme wind and went for more trampoline time.
If you’d like to see what’s been going on in our farming world this week, you can see what we did with some other friendly people right here.
Finally, to close out this People Week, you should watch our friends’ little boy singing in the tractor. It’s good for a laugh.
