The start of this story was when our homeschool co-op announced the Christmas concert dress code. A dress code that was not farming apparel. (Shocking, huh?!)
"I'm not wearing a red sweater. I'm not. No way. No one is going to know I'm a farmer."
This went on for days/weeks. Sometimes with tears. This child is certainly well aware of how to make an ant hill into Mt. Washington (hello to my NH peeps!).
I finally came up with a suggestion...how about a bow tie with cows or tractors? That way everyone would know he's a farmer.
Well, he thought that was plausible.
What a relief.
Truth: I was stitching this in the dark by the overhead light in the car on the way to the concert. (Don't worry, my husband was driving). I clipped threads in the church as I was putting it on him. It worked though. He was content.
Goodness, it looked dashing.
But I was NOT allowed to take a picture. Who knows, he might have been afraid you couldn't see the farming in the picture?
Here it is...the emergency farming piece that saved the day.
