My daughter has spent the better half of the past year, in her free time around home, with the boy next door. They’ve gotten to be pretty good buds. And when we asked if he’d like to come with us to the ranch these few last days before school .. his mom and stepdad weren’t so sure. He would miss a day of football practice. And .. I don’t think they wanted in any way to intrude…
First time on a John Deere.
I asked him how he was doing later that first day.
“This is the best day so far of my life,” he responded. “Seriously.”
First time I’ve seen him with a smile that we can’t seem to wipe off his face ..
