When do you do chores, and what chores do you do? I help milk some before school. After school, I help if I am not working at my job as a CNA at Mother of Mercy in Albany.
What is your favorite and least favorite chores? My favorite chore is milking cows because it is calming and it is nice working one-on-one with my parents. My least favorite is anything with driving tractor or skidsteer because I am not good at it.

What is your favorite subject in school? I like my agricultural classes. We are getting started in the greenhouse, and it is fun to plant all the plants and watch them grown. Some we will sell in our annual FFA plant sale, but a good portion of them we plant in gardens that our ag classes take care of. The food is served in the school lunch room. It is cool being a part of that.
