I just finished my final Monday of the school year.

And that feels amazing.

I have so much very to do in the next six days that it's kind of hard to breathe.

But on the 7th day, I shall rest.

New John Deere Products

Rungreen has TONS of new John Deere products for sale! I thought I would share some of the newest items on the market, perfect for spring. (Just click on each picture to take you directly to the Rungreen link.)

There is this 3-piece John Deere planter set. I think it would be perfect for a little window herb garden.
These little John Deere paint sets would be perfect for a rainy spring day!

And look at this John Deere kite! We will definitely need one of these at our house!

We love these little self-charging flashlights. They are perfect to keep in the car in case of emergency. (Or perfect for a little boy to keep in his bed to read once Mommy turns out the lights!)

I don't know about you, but sitting around a fire on a cool spring night is one of my favorite ways to spend an evening. Check out this awesome John Deere fire pit!
Both kids got John Deere beach towels for Easter. Rungreen has about 6 different designs. They are big, thick, and soft. This is the one Cole has. The Little Miss has an adorable pink daisy one that we use for swim lessons every week.

My little tractor loving boy hasn't seen these yet, but OH MAN...when he does! They are giant John Deere decals for your wall. So cool!

If you think think you've seen it all, just look! They even have John Deere satellite covers!

I think every family should have a cornhole set. (That's what it's called around here. Is that a regional thing? Maybe you call it a bean bag toss?) Whatever you call it, you need it! We have a John Deere cornhole set, and it's perfect for taking with you to tailgate, camping, family reunions, or any backyard BBQ.

Rungreen is also giving away a model 4020 Standard Precision Key Series tractor. (That's a really nice one valued at $140.00!)

To register for Rungreen's giveaway, just click here. And tell them John Deere Mom sent you.

A Tale of a Boy

Once upon a time, there was a boy.

This boy loved nothing more than farming with his daddy.

One day, this boy got to ride on the tractor with his daddy while his sister and mommy fed the cows.

The boy was happily riding along in the tractor when all of a sudden his daddy stopped the tractor and said, "It's your sister's turn to ride with me."

And this boy? Was m-a-d.

He went stomping up the hill, crying, and even threw his hat to the ground.

He grabbed his rubber mallet (because what boy doesn't carry one of those around?) and took his anger out on some loose soil.

Meanwhile, the little sister was soaking up the daddy/tractor time.

The boy finally decided he might as well make the most of the time. He got his own seed drill and did a little planting of his own.

Before long, he was even smiling.

And eventually, the boy and his sister made up and lived happily ever after...

until they started fighting over the skid loader ten minutes later.

The End.
