We had a beautiful Sunday.
Like I said in my last post, we’ve been missing Craig. Harvest season is in full swing and we are so excited to hear about the progress in the field and we love riding in the combine with Craig any chance we get.
Sunday, we were so fortunate that Craig had the day off. He had just an hour of chores in the morning and I had breakfast ready when he came back – we had these delicious breakfast quesedillas – I’ll share that recipe in an upcoming post.
Craig suggested we go on one last trail ride of the season with the boys. It’s amazing how our love of biking has grown over the Summer.
Our favorite 4.5 mile trail once required an hour of preparation, snacks, water bottles – the whole she-bang. Now we know we can knock it out non stop in about 30 minutes no problem and even have energy to contemplate a second lap.
The helmet we bought Gannon in June finally fits him. He can sit up a little straighter in his bike seat. It was just a perfect fall day for a bike ride. We stopped at Casey’s so Craig could get his soft serve ice cream with a cookie and then at the convenience store in town so I could get my hard serve and a personal combo pizza to share – all Summer traditions when we ride the Fredericksburg trail.
When we got home we played in the leaves. We all took a nap – just enjoying each other’s company. I got up and packed Craig’s sandwich’s for the week once he gets back in the combine.
Before long, it was time for me to go to work. I work a lot of Sunday nights because mom is available to watch Gannon on Mondays.
I’ll admit, I cried leaving for work. Carver cried too. It’s so hard to leave home when Craig is actually there and we don’t know when we will get more quality time with him again. It’s a part of farm life and nurse life. It’s a hard season.
Trying not to cry because its over. Trying to smile because it happened. We vowed that if he has next Sunday off we will go mountain biking and have a date. Thanks for reading friends.
