Geo Bee

Got word today that Bryan is headed back to Omaha for the semi-final round of the National Geographic Geo Bee! He will compete against 99 other students from around Nebraska with the winner heading to Washington DC. We are VERY proud of him!!

Tonight he is busy finishing up a homework assingment online and then said plans to study a bit from a few sites. He reads his National Geographic cover to cover and how he retaines everything amazes us!

Okay love science but tonight Bryan comes in and says, "Hey Mom I need a pulley system, wheel, axcel, inclined plane, lever and fulcrum, and a wedge for my project." Hmmm let me think about that? A DAD!!!!!!!!!! He is trying to figure out a fast way to pull a tooth and turn it in for his project. Anyone have any suggestions?

Funny things kids say

I love the time after school when the kids talk about their day. Paul will say goofy stuff like, "I don't mean to change the subject but..." or Morgan will say "I don't want to offend but..." Bryan has his nose in a book and when the talk slows down fro
The other two he talks about his day. Today 6th graders busy baking for tomorrows bake sale. All $$ raised will help to pay for shipping gift boxes to the troops.

Lego creation

Paul made this and said it's hauling a boat.

Missing Rod

Paul & I were talking tonight about things he remembers about Rod. He said he was worried that he is going to forget things about him. I said that's why we can spend time talking about him.

As I was getting ready to cook dinner tonight I opened the fridge and had a head of cabbage hit my foot. I laughed and said OKAY I'll make fried cabbage to go along with dinner. I loved how Rod would cook it until the bottom of the pan got brown.

Ardala was able to make it here last Friday ahead of the storm. We ended up with about 15". Bryan's "Sing Around Nebraska" was postponed until March 3. He did have his band concert on Monday night and that was a lot of fun as the band kids host a dinner ahead of time. Karen & Karalyn were not able to make it due to the storm.

Tomorrow I head to Lincoln to speak at the Ne Farm Bureau Legislative Conference about the ways producers can step out from behind the gate and talk about their farms and ranches.

Morgan has been busy with dance and is looking forward to her dance recital May 5th. This year is flying by for her and hard to believe another dance year will soon be coming to an end.

Mr. Paul told us he wants at least 50 more pigs as his first one leaves for the butcher later this month. He has really enjoyed raising him.

Off to help with homework...

Till later...see ya!
