Boys and Their Toys
This my friends, is the first thing I saw when I opened our garage one day last week. The John Deere had an oil leak that Kevin decided to repair with the neighbor, which took a little over a week. Our garage was in shop mode the past week... parts, tools, and shop rags all over the place! Kevin, Heath (neighbor), Riley (our dog), and Nic spent more time consumed by this in the garage than anywhere else.
During this escapade, I was faced again with just how far from things we really are! Oh, the perks of living in a small town. It is a good thing thing the great and amazing things here outweigh the inconvenient ones! We had to drive to Poteau, OK, which is about an hour away, for a John Deere part so that Kevin could repair it.While at the tractor store, the overpowering love our little man has for tractors took over! Nic stood in absolute awe and in love over the many tractors that surrounded him. His smile, laugh, and excitement overfilled my heart with even more love than I thought was possible. See, that's the amazing thing with children... Just when you think you can't love them anymore, you find yourself falling more and more in love with them. There just aren't any words...
A little more than a week after tearing our lawnmower apart, it was back together and running... I walked outside looking for Kevin and found him and Nic driving all around the yard excited that it was back up and running!
These two amazing men in my life take my breath away (even with Nic's goofy looks and smiles)!
