Monday, February 14 Today was a combination of hearing students talk about how excited they were about Valentine’s Day, and hearing others complain about its existence. One of the things that I love most about my job is interacting with students and truly getting to know them as individuals. Every student is so unique, and being able to understand and work with them as individuals is what makes ...

Monday, February 7 Turned cows out on Mill Rd. to go to the creek to drink. This sure helps not having to drag the hoses out and hook up. Wet snow this morning. Working on boxing a shipment of parts to Canada. Nicholas and Austin delivered 30 bales of hay to the horse farm on Woodsdale. Then Austin and I went to rental farm and fed round bales. Too muddy to pull silage wagon out, so we'll wait for...
This has been a very busy week for the Casey Family. We know have nine baby lambs and all are doing very well. Each day the sheep get fed twice a day. They get fed grain which includes corn, oats, salt, mineral, and supplement which is protein. Each momma gets about 2 pounds of feed along with alfafa hay and all the water they want. This week we had 1,000 pounds of feed mixed for them. This wi...
Monday, February 7 Today was a pretty typical day of school. A highlight in my freshmen classes was that Di Schroeder spoke to them about how to handle rabbits and how to identify signs of good or poor health in rabbits. Di visited each class and explained in detail how to hold, carry, and flip each rabbit. As part of their grade for the rabbit project, students will be expected to perform thes...
Monday, January 31, 2010 The last day of the month and this will be the end for my diary. I made another trip today to Greenville, OH to deliver corn to the ethanol plant. The weather sounds bad for the rest of the week. The worldwide grain shortage has pushed the price a little higher this past week. This has been a great help to farmers to cover their expenses for the upcoming year. Everything w...
Tuesday, February 1, 2011 First day of my diary - started raining @ 4:30 a.m. - turned into ice by 7 a.m.Nicholas and Jake worked on well pump most of the day to be able to water cattle at the farm in Preble County. Penned cattle up around barns at the 3 different pastures so they wouldn't want to go drink @ the creek - We've lost cattle before slipping on the ice, so preventive measures. Had to ...
Monday, January 31 “Do you think we’ll have school tomorrow?” I’m always bombarded by questions throughout the school day, and today was no different. It seems like every single student asked me that question today! And for good reason….freezing rain, sleet, and snow are in the forecast for the next couple of days. We have a lot to accomplish at school this week, so I am hopeful that the forec...
Tuesday February 1 It was an exciting morning. When we heard a little baa at 4 a.m. we knew baby lambs had arrived. We have a monitor in the house to listen for new arrivals. Sam got up to go check on them since this one is a first-time mom. She had twin ram lambs (boys). At about 5:30 we received the first call for school being on a 2 hr. delay, and then about 7 a.m. we got the second call tellin...
