There's my kid, #83, lining up on the football field, tonight, in the rain. Just another of the things that he gets done in a day. In five short days, he will turn 18. Absolutely and totally mind blowing how quickly time has flown by. It really seems like only yesterday that we brought him home. That he was my little 'Linus' with his blanket (which he called his 'Bobby'---yes he will be thrilled that  I told that little secret!) Didn't he just start school, join 4H, become a big brother, become one again, and again. Wow! This has been a busy week, everyone running 40 different directions, trying get things done. Somewhere in amongst this, I think at the end of last week, I worked on a blog post for the 'Faces of Ag' blog that is a collaboration of some central Missouri gals, who showcase people involved in agriculture from a million different perspectives. Today they choose to showcase Cody's perspective, at least my view of it.
Here's the post:

Enjoyed digging out some pics of him 'farming' through the years, especially now that most that I am currently taking are in a football jersey. It was a great reminder in savoring the moments, which I am trying to do each and every day. Mother's Day/Graduation will be here so fast!
Just wanted to share the blog for those who hadn't already seen it, oh and BTW the way, we won tonight in double overtime, 18-12. Of course the most important statistic from the game I have to wonder is how much rain did we get DURING the game?
Still trying to warm up and dry out, but loving that rain,
From Tulip~
