Just today we noticed my olive egger limping.

Picked her up and notice one foot swollen.

i used the tip of my nail to scrape off some dirt and out popped the kernel.

You can see the hole it left.

My questions this is bumblefoot correct and what else do I do?

I'm googling and searching on here.

Clean the foot pad off well, flush the hole out. Make sure there is no more gunk in it. Fill the hole with plain neosporin or plain triple antibiotic ointment (no pain killer in it), put a gauze pad on it and wrap the foot with vet wrap or co wrap (not too tight). Check, apply ointment, and re-wrap daily until it's healing up. Then keep wrapped and change as needed until it's all healed up.
You basically did this:

Thank you, I worried it might be something else since it just came off. All I was trying to do was scrape off the dirt so I could get a better look.

You were lucky! They don't all come out easy! Hopefully it was small enough that it will heal up and be done with nothing more to it. It is a good idea to check feet periodically so that you catch them early, they are easier when small.
