Slow news day

It certainly isn't every day that your kids make the front page of the paper. And yet, that is exactly what has happened! And it's not the local weekly paper, either. We're talking the state capital's city paper.

We were contacted Tuesday evening about the photographer coming over to get a few shots of the kids doing their morning animal chores in the cold. We agreed. I thought it would just be a photo with a caption...human interest. But then, we were interviewed and told that they might even want to do another story every few months of our progress through the year. And last night, we were told that unless something happened big in Egypt in the next few hours, we'd be on the front page. Talk about shock!

You can see the article here. I don't know how long that link will be good, but for now, that's the place.

So far, the comments online are tame. Hopefully, it'll stay that way. People tend to use those comment sections to sound off. Of course, I know I shouldn't care one way or the other! But I do.

Anyway, take a look! I'm so proud of my hard-working kids!

Awesome! Great article. Loved the quote that if they didn't take care of the animals they could die. Bet your dc taught some folks a lesson about responsibility.

Great job...

A friend of mine posted the link on facebook, it was cool to see it! I told her "I know those people, I sold them a couple cows some time back." I asked if she knew you folks, and she told me that while she did not know you all personally, that small farms are "one big family." This is their link www.chisholmfamilyfarm.com they also homeschool and have a small farm. You might like to get together with them. Please pray for them, last night they had a freak accident and lost four of their cows. A transformer exploded, dropped live lines on a fence, and that is what got their cows. So please keep them in your prayers. Bye for now, Jennifer Fritzen

You should be very proud of the wonderful children you have. Sounds like you have taught them well. I loved the story. I long to have a life such as that.
