An evening at our house…
It started just as dinner was finishing and dishes being cleared, Dad and Mom said that a neighbor had called and asked for us to come by and pick some corn in their patch. So after dishes were done and buckets gathered we went outside to load up.
But then a problem struck us. Sam had the van for work and we had our whole family (11 Fuhrmanns) and our cousins (3 of them) so we decided to get Josh’s truck and our car. It took some creativity and extra time, but soon everyone was crammed into the cab, car and the back of the pick up. When we arrived at the neighbors house we all climbed out and said hello and than guess what he said “Alrighty you guys just follow me the corn’s about a mile away” WHAT? We laughed and said “OK lets all see how fast we can load back up”
Now that’s a challenge! 14 people climbing and scrambling into 2 vehicles was definitely a sight but we did it and arrived safely at the corn patch. We all hopped out grabbed a bucket and started picking… several minutes later and lots of buckets full of corn later me and Sheila (my “corn picking buddy”) started walking back through the patch to the truck. Danny and Van Louis (our cousin) dashed by in a full fledged game of hide and seek and than we came upon John settled in the dirt murdering “bad beetles” with rocks
Soon we had all the corn (and children) loaded and headed home hot and laughing. Oh and by the way the night was finished off with volleyball and soccer :-). Things are always way more fun when the whole family works together! Spending the precious time we have been given with each other is a wonderful thing.
