My Farmer Boy
I'm not really into labels for myself. I don't like to be labeled. Am I a pastor's wife? Was I a pastor's wife? Am I a photographer? Am I a Stay-at-Home or a Work-at-Home Mom? Am I a Christian? or a Believer? Are we a Homeschooling Family? Or just a family that is currently Homescholing? Gee, I can't figure myself out most of the time. I just like to be me. Why must someone label me? Why would they give me a name other than Jody?
HOWEVER, I LOVE PUTTING LABELS ON OTHER PEOPLE! I know. It's very hypocritical. It's not fair. But I love nicknames, and funny names, and names that tell stories and just names in general. (Did you know each of my twins has 4 names on their birth certificate? If you can name them and you are not a member of their family, you get 3 Gold Stars)
That was all just the introduction to this post about Farmer Boy. At least he is right now. He has all sorts of other talents not limited to pastoring, business and fatherhood. But for today he is Farmer Boy.
Look over here, so the people can see you, Farmer Boy!
It's takes a real kinda man to wear this outfit. A man who is so secure inside and out that he chooses to wear two hats at once just to stay warm. However, neither of them cover his ears. Hmmm . . .
And he doesn't need a coat. No. Coats are for sissies, not Farmer Boys. And if he wore a coat, it might cover up his camo overalls. And if one is going to the extreme of purchasing camo overalls, you better let people see them. (For those of you who live in towns bigger than 40, 000 outside of the Midwest, you need to understand that around these parts, camo is the new black. I'm serious.)
He sure does make a handsome, albeit, fashion-deficient Farmer Boy.
These photos were not taken today. Today it is snowing. Lots of snow. Very wet, fast falling snow. That pile of leaves they raked lookes like an igloo.
And because I'm opening myself up to correction of every form in my pursuit of holiness, if you have a nickname for me you can leave it in the comments. It's "Label the One You Love Week" here at Robinson Moments.
