That moment you look your son in the eyes and put your faith in him as a young man, then you get out the seat with your gut in faith and walk away with thoughts rushing though your head and then see them move off the spot then see them running it well. It just makes you wanna tear up being a proud father of your son becoming a young responsible man.
Let's just appreciate what a great childhood those kids have, running around on pit bikes, atv's, surrounded by massive tractors in nature, always outside. And then they have this wonderful, loving family who likes to teach them things. I'm kinda jealous :)
Oh my goodness, I am not sure who had the bigger smile. Onyx or Dad, I can only imagine how proud both of you are. Way to go Onyx and Rhiannon will be doing the grain cart duties. For all of the haters out there, this is not child abuse or endangerment, this is passing the torch to the next generation of our farmers who keep us fed. My hat is off to all of you. Zach your patience teaching is remarkable.
My father died when I was 4 so I pretty much had to rely on my neighbors to teach me everything Zach is teaching Onyx. I have since passed those things along to my son when he was very young and who is 33 and has a family of his own. Something that did come to mind was the family across the road from us who basically treated me like one of their own. They were like parents to me. The wife was buried last week and the husband about a year ago. Watching this reminds me of the neighbor that taught me to me teaching my son
