I worried about how I was going to get through harvest well into the 3rd trimester as a “single” mom. With Jay out in the field for 14+ hours every day for 4 weeks and counting, I look back and wondered why I worried. Braden has been better than good, and I’ll write more on that later… BUT, for right now…I’m ready for harvest to be DONE. So are the guys. 34 weeks pregnant today, about 4+ weeks of being a “single mom”…yup my harvest tolerance has been maxed! But, when you look at these pics, you’ll see why I really do love harvest so much!
We headed out to see the harvest crew at the Rosebud land, which is about 20 minutes away from the farm site, last Sunday when we got back from the wedding. I missed my boy like crazy, I think more than usual because he’s at an age where he is keenly aware of all that is going on around him, and missed us and knew where we were and that we were gone.

Since it was a gorgeous fall evening, I decided to dress my boy up in his finest harvest duds and do our annual harvest photo shoot. Uncle Craig even said to me “did you have to dress him exactly like me?” But I think he was very flattered! Funny he said that, because I did tell Braden he was going to wear his “Uncle Craig shirt”!

Then it was time for a harvest take-out supper in the field. I love these moments and capturing the memories for years to come. Note, this is the FIRST picture of me ever at harvest time. I noted that when James was putting together the movie for our farm, there wasn’t a single.picture.of.me in the last 7 years! It’s because I’m always the one taking the pictures! So, for the next harvest movie…there can be a picture of me at 33 weeks pregnant with Squishy!
