{farm kid}

i grew up a farm kid. Photobucket
this means, basically, that i didn't have to go to school on snow days, and that my favourite extra-curricular activity was playing in a pile of grain. it also means that i got fleas from a fox once and that i know how to make a chicken bawk after it's dead.Photobucket PhotobucketPhotobucket
i'm a city kid now.

this means, basically, that i walk everywhere and, in the event that i ever go into labour, i won't have to drive two hours before accidentally giving birth in the passenger seat of a car while my husband is passing a semi truck {this actually happened to someone i know from my hometown last month}. Photobucket Photobucket this weekend, for the first time in 6 months, barclay and i made the trip home for some time on the farm. Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket this means, basically, fresh strawberries from the patch out front, board games in the sun porch, climbing on and singing in the grain bins, listening to coyotes howl late into the evening just outside the window, and stealthily video-taping some hutterites who snuck off the colony to jump on our trampoline.

maybe i'll always be a farm kid, a little bit.
