The Harvest Moon

The day was cloudy, but, towards evening, the clouds cleared away. Tonight the moon is full and bright. I read where it's called a harvest moon because the light is so bright that the farmers are able to actually continue their fall harvesting later into the night during this phase of the moon.

Daddy took his youngest out to look for coyotes tonight as a reward for a 100% on this weeks spelling test. It was a boy's greatest reward: Time alone in the wilds with his dad. I don't think we needed the moonlight to see that child's grin!
