Southeast Comes Calling . . .
Here they come! We are busy today preparing for our first school field trip of the year. Tomorrow we are going to be graced by about 55 students from the 4th grade of Southeast Elementary in Sycamore, IL. My youngest brother, Jon, is the teacher for one of the classes there and will be guiding the students along a tour of our local farm bureau, our farm and a neighbor's cow/calf operation. Hopefully the kids will gain a better understanding of where their food comes from, how it is produced, and why agriculture is important to us all.
