What it’s Like on the Farm
Today, Grandpa and his grandson are riding the tractor to get away from the house. The house is too small, there is no room. They are heading out to the corn and wheat fields. Grandpa’s name is Bob, and his grandson’s name is Billy.
The time of year is fall, the weather is cold and chilly. They both grabbed their jackets, hats, and mittens before they left. They might be buying some things in the store for their brothers and sisters because it’s close to Christmas.
They are being careful not to travel on the grass, they want to travel on the road. They are heading to school, and they are giving tractor rides to the school kids.
They have arrived so they can purchase milk, corn, bread, churned butter. The butter doesn’t have much taste unless you add salt. The store smells wet and moldy today. They are making chocolate chip cookies and putting them in a row. They taste like chocolate, nice and cool. And you can taste the butter! And you can smell the butter and vanilla.
Bob and Billy’s farm is in an orchard. Guess what, that small house is really an outhouse! They really enjoy spending time together; Billy’s mom and dad are always working. Billy learns a lot from his grandma who likes cooking. He learns what he needs to start baking. Billy gets so smart out on the farm.
Billy has 10 cousins! Grandpa Bob and Grandma help all the grandkids out. They like to eat when they’re busy. They love eating cookies!
The boys go to find grandma and they find her inside. They decided to have a big coffee party, but Billy had cold milk and Coke. They ate sugar cookies together. They warm up the cookies on the hood of the tractor!
