Just Another Look At Our Life

No one loves a parade more than the girls of One Carbon Hill even if that parade consists of nothing more than 200 tractors driving past your house on a random Wednesday.

I have no idea where they came from or where they were going, but we found the presence of these classic machines - International Harvester, Minneapolis Moline, John Deere, and Massey Ferguson among those featured - and the smiling elderly gentlemen driving them a very exciting event* on an otherwise very ordinary overcast morning.

Watching an impromptu parade from your front yard while still wearing your pajamas? That's good stuff right there.

*And yes, this is one way that we define "exciting" here at One Carbon Hill. I realize this makes our life appear very ordinary and perhaps somewhat sheltered, but I love it. I suppose this, when coupled with being surrounded on three sides by corn fields and the menagerie of wild animals visiting our property over the years, solidifies that we're about as close to country living as you get. All I can say is that if this had taken place next week during the excitement of Carbon Hill Homecoming it might have been too much to handle.

Think you are raising your girls right. The ordinary things always thrill kids. Seems like those are the things that stick out in their minds. Sometimes grandiose can miss the mark on kids. What a great day your girls had.
