08 Jul Emma: Headed Home
As I mentioned in my previous post, we finished up in Texas and cleaned up the machinery. Now comes the four hour drive home. The reason we do not haul the combine is because it would take more money in fuel and more time to drive the truck to the combine with the proper trailer, load it, and return home than it would to just drive it home. I think this may be where patience can be very useful. The trip does not take as long if you have some company. Clara and Martha could not wait to fill that position!
Martha and her fishy face.
Clara really liked the windmills.
Crossing the Oklahoma-Texas border! One leg in Texas and one leg in Oklahoma.
A long but fun drive down the highway going 20 mph in the big green beast!
Be safe and God bless!

Thank you so much! It wouldn’t be the same without the kids. That’s how I learned so much; riding in the combine every single day. I would love to spread the love I have for this job and way of life onto the next generation. It’s not meant for everyone, but it’s just right for us!
Keep beating the heat with lots of water. That’s what we’re doing!
Glad to hear the corn is looking good. We’re gonna need a good fall crop this year. Thanks for posting -Emma <3
