2016 Harvest in the Books

combine to grain cart to semiBrad finished harvesting his corn today. He’ll still be helping another farmer with harvest, but his corn is out of the field.

The big highlight of this harvest was Elliana learning to drive the grain cart. Brad started showing her the ropes Sunday afternoon.

He thought the way things were set up would be perfect for her to drive by herself, and she did. Don’t worry about her being overworked. She’s been SO EXCITED all week about driving the grain cart!

Looking for corn that the combine missed

Another highlight was getting quality, one-on-one time in the combine with the big kids. If you want to see how your kids are different, just spend a few hours with each of them in a combine.

Now we’re praising God that a safe and happy harvest is complete!
