It’s become a tradition every June for my nephew Sam to enjoy a week here at the farm while his big brothers are at church camp.
This year his little brother Davy came to join him.
Sam and Buddy are best friends.
I’m not sure what it is about boys and mud – but I’m sure it’s in the jeans (oops – I mean genes!)
Davy and Pedro have become best buddies this week. Maybe it’s because they both love cars and trucks and things with wheels. …or maybe it’s because Davy knows Pedro has the keys to the 4 wheeler and will give him rides! 😉
Pedro has been so patient with the little guy, reading him tractor stories and letting him sit in every vehicle and pretend to drive.
He even pulled out the pedal car and let Davy sit on it while he pushed him around the yard – for hours and hours.
One morning we got out the little Ertyl farm set and filled a Rubbermaid with wheat berries. Davy had a blast filling the wagons with wheat and dumping it back out. He feed the cows and filled the silos. I had wheat berries all over the basement. 🙂
Later that night when we gave him a bath, Dagmar took off his diaper and enough wheat berries to make a loaf of bread came spilling out! “Uh Oh!”
The little guy even had wheat berries imbedded in his tushy! No wonder he was a little wiggly at supper!
Speaking of supper…
Meal time is where Davy and I bonded. I showed him how to put Bugles on his fingers, laughed when he said, “Oops! I burped Aunt Linna” and let him feed his lettuce to his “Buddy bunny” instead of eating it himself.
I even squirted chocolate sauce on the top of his ice cream cone, let him lick it of and then squirted some more on.
I can do that. I’m the aunt. It’s my job.
I love it!
