Monday, February 21 Happy President’s Day! A Monday like this when we are out of school is such a blessing. I had time to actually enjoy the entire weekend, and I still had a full day to catch up on a ton of work! So, I spent today doing just that. Most of the morning and early afternoon I spent shopping and gathering supplies for my Ag Science II students. Students in those classes are desig...
Monday February 21 Robbie left to do the feeding before school. Sam left for work. This morning we all woke up to a very cold wet day. It's hard to believe 35 years ago today, Sam and I were married. It seems like the years have gone by so fast. We have been very blessed. It actually rained on that day as well. Only back then the temperature was warmer around 60-65 degrees. Days like this you ...

When he gets to the barn he found a new set of triplets. After feeding and checking to see that everything is o.k. he went on to school. When Robbie gets off school he always checks on the babies. The triplets are a litttle weak ...
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 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...
