Ethan and his date Autumn for senior prom May 8.

Everything is in full swing here at our farm. As I write this Jeramie is just finishing up planting the last of our soybeans.  The wheat is up nicely and the alfalfa is growing well.  I really hope that we can get some rain soon because it is unusually dry here. 

Ethan is enjoying his last couple of weeks of high school.  We’re getting ready for his graduation at the end of May.  Last weekend he attended prom and this week they had a bunch of fun activities like muscle ball (volleyball) and powderpuff football games that were played against the current juniors.  I know he is making lots of good memories and it makes me happy that these kids are getting a chance to have a somewhat normal senior year.  Ethan plans on working off of the farm for awhile to decide if he wants to farm.  Jeramie and I are happy that he is taking this time to explore all of his options.  We’ve always told our kids that if they want to farm, ours will always be here for them. We don’t want them to choose to farm because they think that we can’t do it without them or because it’s expected of them.

Hannah is finishing up her junior year of college this week.  She has taken a full-time summer job in Fargo this summer and will be moving to a different apartment at the end of the month.
