A Drive in the Country

Today the boys and I did some errands and decided to "meander" for a while. Even though we live in Lincoln, we can be completely out of town within minutes.  A quick right turn and a few minutes later Arliss, Travis, and I had the windows down, music turned up, and were taking in the wonderful smells of clover, fresh air, and simplicity.  I know simplicity doesn't have a smell, but if it did, it would be the smell of farms and open country roads.

We drove east for 15 minutes or so, quickly finding gravel roads and wide open spaces.  We talked about the corn crops and soybean fields we passed.  We talked about the farms we drove by, the livestock they had, and the machinery we saw in their fields.  

The drive wasn't far and it wasn't for hours and hours, but when we drove back into Lincoln our spirits were refreshed and refilled.  I have a feeling we will be taking drives in the country more often.  

Sending love from a future farm, somewhere in Nebraska. :)
