Got Milk? Anyone?

Our first day of school is over. And it didn't include a single book, just lots of tractors, food, and mennonites. We were at Ag Progress Days and i will most certainly consider that a field trip. We had a great time, in spite of the fact that after we got there we realized neither of us had any cash with us. O well, certainly there has to be an ATM somewhere on the vicinity. Nope. Thankfully Marlin has made friends with different milk related business people, so we were handed lots of free organic chocolate milk and cheese. The most interesting part of the day for me was people watching. I could sit on a bench and just watch people. Far more interesting than watching tractors. The sight that took the day were the conservative mennonite girls with their dresses plastered with free bumper stickers. "Eat Beef," "Organic Valley" and the worst of all. "Got milk?" Right on the back, for all the world to wonder. I informed Eric to never let Emily do that when she's a teenager. Neither may she wear a "corn" shaped paper hat or have her face painted with flowers. Actually, i think she can just figure on staying home. She has way to much of her mama in her and i'm afraid to think of the consequences.

We did find food after we left. Best mexican food i ever ate, hands down, and for very reasonable. A great treat in the middle of the week. So now i sit at home, trying to ignore the fact that i have to think of something for supper. I just want to sit on the front porch with a cup of ice tea and watch the world go by. Actually, you can't watch the world go by, we are surrounded by trees, but that's just fine by me.

So not a very deep blog post, but that's ok. I have many "deeper" things to write about but for some reason they refuse to be written. Maybe later............

  1. The last time I was at Ag Progress Days it was sooooo hot,and I was ready to leave after 15 minutes but we had to stay all day because my husband had to haul some equipment home and we a misunderstanding about where to meet and I thought he was at fault and he thought I was at fault,etc.But I have good memories about Ag Days many years ago when we were dairy farmers and our kiddos were 2,5 and 7 years old.We spent all day there and had off for the evening milking! :) Blessings to you and your family as you adjust to farming life.
