Working and Watching {28}

Dear Miss Dinah,

Daddy left yesterday to go and pick up his equipment in Dallas, and he's already on his way back today.

His seed cleaner (for parts) was being shipped all the way from Australia, and we have waited a long, long time for it to get here!

You will grow to see what a hard worker your Daddy is. His mind is always working to think of better ways to do things. He's been wanting to build a better seed cleaning machine for a while now, and he's finally getting to do it. Over many months, he has done countless hours of research, planning, drawings, phone calls, and gathering equipment.

When I first saw his seed cleaning machine, I had never seen anything like it before. It looks like something I had seen in a child's book of silly inventions. There were gidgets attached to gadgets with pully's, and sprockets rotating around gears and doo-hickey's connecting  bouncing things to spinning things. Note: some language may have been adapted to adjust for lack of knowledge on the topic.

It won't be too long before you understand how these things work though! You are already starting to investigate your own little pieces of the world. I love it when you explain things to me. You talk in your quiet little voice (or squealy, excited little voice) all about what you are doing... and you watch. Oh, girl, how you watch. You so closely observe what people are doing. I can tell that you are just taking it all in. You watch, you watch, you watch...and then you giggle =D

Daddy sent us this picture, all loaded up before he left Dallas.

 I love you.

Mamma <3
