I can't believe we are ready to depart for National FFA Convention again. Seems like just yesterday we were at the last one. I, for one, love to return to the mothership with 55,000 of my closets friends and students. Something about that convention gets me excited for the possibilities... "I Believe" and "Infinite Potential" have been some very appropriate themes.
This past week has sped along faster than I thought that it should, but I suppose as jammed packed as it was makes for speedy days. Which leads us to sliding into this week with the tires smoking and a small fire under the dash.
Yesterday we went out to work cows to get ready for the breeding season. We had some special guests this time, as a few of my students were hosting an exchange trip of French students and their instructors here at the school this week. I'm not sure if it's keeping up foreign relations, but several of them came out to the farm with us and helped work the ALC cows. They were very interested in what we were doing, but I also think it was a bit more 'involved' than they were looking for.
A new set of kids in Advanced Animal Science means a new set of "Greenhands" to break in. This group looks to be better than the last, albiet a bit niave about the whole process. But I think that's what makes it fun.
As we head off to National FFA this week, I hope to blog a bit about our trip and the great opportunties we will have. I'm looking forward to the Reindeer farm tomorrow... I hear they have a pumpkin cannon....
