I am starting to be convinced that there must be something to the saying "Farming is in his blood." I have used that phrase myself in reference to my husband, and now I see it being true of my son. Certainly we have given him tractors to play with, and a barn with animals. We go to the farm to visit Dad while he is the barn. But, I don't feel like I have forced farming on him in any way.
Yesterday, Wilbert came home with a farming magazine, which Joash immediately gravitated to. So, he and Wilbert paged through it after lunch and Joash quickly found his favorite page.
"This one, right here."
"See, isn't this a nice round bale wrapper?"
"I love this round bale wrapper!"
I took about 15 pictures of him with this magazine and he had his eyes closed on ALL of them. And he really only cares about this one page with the pictures of the round bale wrapper on it. There are tractors and cows and combines pictured throughout the magazine, but the page he keep coming back to is the round bale wrapper. What a kid!
