The corn is ready to harvest~!

Ben and I were outside kicking the soccer ball around and the ball got into the corn.. Ben went in to get the ball and he was shaking the corn.. He said "GranAnnie this corn rustles".. He liked the sound and walked on the outer edge of the field with his arms making the corn move.. I could see where he was by watching the corn tassles above move as he walked. I won't let him go too far into the corn. That is how children and adults get lost.. They get inside and can't find their way out.. I told him this week=end we would cut corn down and make a corn shock...and maybe make a few pumpkin people to sit on the hill by the end of the driveway..
He decided to lay on the ball and told me to take an upside down picture of him... He thought this picture was so cool~!  
     We went into the house and I got some paper out and had him draw circles on the paper with my circle template I bought.. He was having a ball making circles.. Then I brought out the lower case alphabet sheet and told him to make the letters inside the circles. I had some watercolor paints and a little bowl of water and a paint brush. He drew the letters inside the circles with colored pencils and then he really liked the idea of using the paint to color in the circles. He had a great time doing this and he filled in all the circles..I told him tomorrow when he comes he can cut out the circles and we can glue them on a piece of paper and put the letters in the right order.. I thought he would like this a lot.. I'm trying my best to find ways for him to practice his lower case letters and put them in order..  His Dad came to pick him up and take him to his house..have supper and then read some books and go to bed and start the day off again.
I love it when he gets in the back seat of his Dad's car.. He waves and blows kisses..and yells  "Love You ~ Gran Annie"~!
Just melts my heart...ta ta for now from Iowa:)

We're harvesting corn right now, too. And tell Ben, I love the rustle of corn myself!
