School, LIfe , Michelle' Bday & AKH

     It is the beginning of CaleBob's last semester in high school and SpencerBob's last semester as a freshman.  We are in the midst of scholarships, FFA scrapbooking and homework.  Cale is also building a catch trailer in ag which has turned out to be a bit more of a project than he anticipated.  I did not post to my blog one time in 2014 and it wasn't a good thing ....scrapbooking sure is made easier with blog posts that tell the details!  One forgets details....
      The price of fuel has us worried about Jerry's job and everyone else who is employed in the petroleum industry here in Oklahoma.  Some are jumping for joy at the low price of fuel, they are biting the hand that feeds them so to speak....oil and gas "fuels" the economy here in Oklahoma, a decrease in prices have a negative effect on all of us here in Oklahoma.....whether you believe it or not!  Schools are just one example.  So enough of that.  It is really cold at present!!  My old friend Amanda said of the Oklahomans who are happy as clams in regard to $1.67 fuel..."some of us are just to stupid to live".  Bless her, I just love her! 
     Today marks the 35th year of life for Michelle, the first baby that I ever loved (and still do by the way!)  My sister brought her into our world when I was 14, my show lambs and school were important, but she brought new meaning to our family.....she was our first baby....

Spencer is now the owner of a show STEER and Pete is his name.  He exhibited Pete at the Windfarm Classic/ OCCA show last weekend (Jan 3, 2015) and won breed champion, mind you, he was the only Simmental steer there that day.  But anyway, Petey did well and so did Spencer.  The weather was terrible as always at the WFC in beautiful downtown Weatherford, Oklahoma in early January.  They were predicting an ice storm and fortunately it did not materialize. 

Cale's FFA Scrapbook

We Should Have Never Ever Waited So Long To Start...

     If you have an FFA'er start right now, write down on the back of each picture & article who, what and most importantly WHEN!  It is really difficult to tell if Jr. is a freshman in that picture or is he a sophomore?...Don't be like me....get overly organized, write the dates down, take tons of pictures.  Threaten them for a smile if you have to!

"In everything give thanks, for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you".  1Thess. 5:18
Being thankful  in all things is sometimes hard, but there are many, many things that are easy to be thankful for.

Like these two boys,
and a honey like this one!

Be ye'll make your blood pressure lower!!

I am mad.  Mad at parents who fail to parent their children, parents who only wish to play the role of big brother or big sister in the 
 little world they've created where everyone is out to get their spoiled rotten spawn. By allowing a child to never stand on his own for his actions and running to their constant rescue, a child is taught nothing......did we all not learn from the other, older children among us growing up?  Was that not education in the form of childhood justice.....oh noooooo, it is bullying, no child is responsible for his actions, it is always someone else's fault. 
Grow up and be a parent, you are ruining your kid!
