Today I got up, got ready for school, and then went outside to feed my 4-H animals.† After that I went to school to go to all of my classes for the last day and then I took my Honors Biology Final Exam.† After my exam, I went home, fed my animals again, and then worked on my homework for a while.† Next, it was tome for me to wash and work with all of my 4-H animals, which is always done as a family thing.† After we all finished working with the animals, I let my steers out, and then I came inside and went to bed.

This morning was just like yesterday; I got up, got ready for school, and then went and fed all of my animals.† But this time when I went to school, it was to take my English, German, and Health Exams.† When todayís exams were over, I went home and fed all of my animals again.† After feeding, I went inside to work on my last bit of homework for the school year.† I was asked to attend the Ross FFA Chapter Banquet since I am an officer of my chapter, so I decided I would.† Ross had a great banquet and it was a great experience to go to another banquet besides my chapterís.† I got home really late that night, so as soon as I did, I let my steers out and went to bed.

Today I was able to sleep in a little bit because I got to exempt some of my exams.† So when I got up, I went outside and fed, and then got ready for school.† Then I spent an hour or so preparing for my exam.† I had my last exam of the year today and it was my Ag Exam.† It had to be a demonstration, so I decided to do a presentation on managing a herd of cows and then demonstrate how to properly vaccinate a cow.† I chose this because my SAE (Supervised Agricultural Experience) was to raise and breed three cows.† An SAE is a type of project that you have to complete if you are in an Ag class that has to do with agriculture and that teaches you something.† I did my demonstration for my exam and it went very well.† After the exam, I came home to feed my animals, then left for Kings Island.† When we got home from KI, I went outside to let my steers out, and then went to bed.

It was a very nice day out today, so I definitely took advantage of that.† First I got up and went out to feed my animals. After feeding, I worked on stuff outside for a couple of hours.† When it got a little cooler out, I worked with all of my animals, because I didnít want them to overheat.† Then I went to my grandmaís house to swim for a while, and then I went to a graduation party for two of my friends.† When I got home, I went and let my steers out, came in to start packing for officer retreat, and then went to bed.

I went to church with my dad this morning, dropped him off at the field where he was planting his crops after church, and then came home to feed my animals.† After I fed, I went shopping with my mom to pick up a few things and to pick up some lunch.† When we got home, we had to go to a baby shower for my cousin.† After the shower, I came home and then my brother and me went outside and worked with all of our animals.† I came inside after that and began to finish up packing for officer retreat.† At the conclusion of another long day, I finished
