Jonathon just LOVES tractors. The word ‘tractor’ immediately invokes a smile and laughter. Good thing Joe’s dad has a couple tractors so we could make a family ‘ride’ out of it. We followed Papa out to the field to watch him load hay. Jonathon helped Daddy steer, but Madison wasn’t so sure this tractor thing was so great and sat on Mama’s lap. Myra was a bit unsure about sitting on a tractor fender while holding an almost 3 year old (call her an old fashion car-with-seatbelts type of gal) – but everyone was just fine!
Madison MUCH preferred the pool, every day she wakes up (even at home) and says “swimming, okay?”; “beach, okay?”. She has the cutest ‘okay’ with a head nod too, as if as soon as she says ‘okay’ at the end of sentence it has been written in stone as what will come to be.
