Branding 2008

The branding is done for one more year. It was a good day - no major problems, good weather, and overall I think the kids had a good time. Here are a few photos:

Mara - giving a little love to a heifer

Jim - couldn't do as much as normal because of his shoulder surgery

Shelby - a little more timid around the calves than my older kids

Megan - took over the job of pushing calves with her cousin Raleigh

Seth - had some new experiences this year, he learned how to apply elastrators, and spent most of his time running the calf table - he is becoming quite a good hand

The Big Four Oh!

Wahooo - I'm 40 years old today! I've decided it is great - I'm not going to have a midlife crisis - at least not yet. I'll save that for 50. Thanks for the card Carol - it's been so fun to reconnect with my roomies. Here's to the next 40 years!!!


Wow is all I can say. Last night I joined the world of cheer moms. Megan made the 7th grade cheer team. Jim's first comment was "What have you done?". It will be an adventure - she is quite excited. Go Eagles!!!!
