About Me

My photo
I am a 42 year old woman that is about as happy and content as one person can be. My husband of 21 years and our 15 year old daughter live on five and a half acres out in the country. We moved from the city four years ago and never looked back. I homeschool our daughter. We also love our animals. Our daughter has a miniature horse and two rabbits. We also have a border collie, two cats (again), two pot belly pigs, four peafowl, three emus, 2 llamas and an undetermined number of chickens, lets just say ohhh about 200. I have many breeds, from layers to fancy chickens. I love poultry shows, I love fowl in general as I have come to find out through having more than just chickens. Chickens will always be my first love though. I do show some of my birds occasionally.

Graduation Party

My older sisters girls are just so grown up. Mine is not far behind I know. It will be no time and she will be grown. The graduation was at 9 am so we werent able to make it to that, but Patties mama had a nice party for her at her house afterwards, so we were able to go to that. I am very proud of this young lady.

On a side note, get this. Do you know how we used to throw our hats after everyone had graduated?

Well they cant do that anymore. Nope. Its not allowed. Want to know why? You ready for this?

Because it might come down and one of the corners on the hat could poke someones eye out.

Go ahead, laugh, laugh til it hurts. Isnt that absurd? I wonder, really, how many eyes have actually been POKED OUT by this age old tradition. I mean REALLY. So there is a short video at the end of this entry of her and her friends throwing their hats up...and get this...

That is the most retarded thing I've heard in a long, long time.  That's right up there with the hot coffee law suit.
I see now that the top I loved in the other pictures is a beautiful dress.  She wears it so well.  Your neices are so pretty and that cake is beautiful too.  Thanks for putting up that video.  What were they going to do if they did throw their hats in the air after graduation, expel them? Glad you got to attend the party.  I bet you are a sweet loving Aunt.

Well I did laugh until it hurt reading the reason they cannot throw the hats anymore...my gosh!  I see some of the rebellious ones took a huge risk and threw their hats at the risk of losing an eye.  LOL

Congratulations to the graduate. I hope to attend my youngest grandson's graduation next month and I can't wait to see if they toss their caps up. Hope they don't do what they did at my oldest grandson's graduation. Paula

...and you can't throw rice at a wedding!  It is not environmentally correct.  Ah and oh how I miss the "old days".   -Karen
