Early this summer we had a little extra help from
our cousin Ethan. Ethan is the great grandson of our Uncle Deric who
worked on our farm after his retirement from the Bentonville
Casting Company and had taught Cody and Casey
a lot of useful mechanical skills as they grew up.
Ethan had a lot of new experiences
down on the dairy farm including feeding a new calf.
Unfortunately for us, school started just about the time
we began having new calves every day!
I'm thankful for the fact that Ethan wanted to come to
the farm and experience the day to day life down on
the dairy farm and for the kindness and patience of my son,Cody,
who mentored Ethan and provided a great summer experience.
I'm pretty sure Uncle Deric and Aunt Fritz would be
extremely proud of Ethan and Cody!
