Welcome to Vaughn Elementary

The community is  invited to attend the Vaughn Elementary
 ribbon cutting and open house on Monday, July 18,5:30-7:30.
I can't wait!
I've been excited since the Bentonville School Board chose
the name Vaughn Elementary. It was a labor of love for several 
community members to speak up for the name that brings
many fond memories of school days at the original 
Vaughn School.

The new Vaughn Elementary is located at
5301 SW Barron Road, Bentonville.
Since the new school is located on the southwest side
of our farm, I have watched the construction through 
every phase. It is a beautiful campus. 

This new school definitely changes the landscape of 
our community and our farming community.
At night with all the lights  it looks like a small city! 

It is my hope that  students that attend this school
will love their school like those who attended the
original Vaughn School.

                                                       Welcome to Vaughn Elementary!

Thankful Thursday

After the chores were finished, our family  gathered around the table for
our traditional  July 4th picnic supper in the cool of the air conditioner and
then made our journey to the pond for a fantastic fireworks display.
We all have a few mosquito and chigger bites but it was worth it
for the fun we had.
I am thankful for the many July 4th  memories we have
 made in this pastoral spot on the farm,

for the curious guests that joined in the fun until the first 
fire cracker was lit,

for the two inches of rain we received that 
allowed us to plant  part of our fall crop,

 for the freedoms we enjoy every day!

                                                            God bless America!
