School is coming to an end....

The school year is coming to an end. 
It's hard to be believe that a whole school year has went by already.
This Thursday is the last day.
Then we will have a 5th grader. 
I can't believe I'm saying this, and a 7th grader in junior high.

The Little Mister had a tour of the junior high last week and loved it.
Tonight we get to go and see where he will be going to classes and spending his day.
On Friday he came home and said they had to fill out a paper about what they wanted to do.
He chose Architect, and two other things.
But he said he was upset because farmer/rancher wasn't on there because they don't consider that a career.
WHAT! The Mister and I were both shocked.
So evidently the fact that we farm and raise livestock is not a way to make a living.
Not only that but the fact that the Mister works for Pioneer which is an Agricultural company.

There are so many things wrong with the fact that Farming/Ranching was not on there.
Who is going to grow the foods we all eat everyday.
That are so readily available at the local grocery.
Who is going to be the stewards of our land.
Who is going to raise our livestock.
Who is going to work from sun up to sun down.
Who is going to work their butts of come sun, rain, snow or whatever God has in store.
Not too many people!

So any way.  I can't wait for Thursday.
The babes will be home with me.
We will get to do some things around here.
Plus we may take a day trip here and there.
We also have county fair to get ready for.  So there will be lots of barn time!

Have a great day Everyone!
