Gramma Izzie, Morgan, and Grandma Rita Wiseman Last week on Friday, our daughter in law graduated from cosmetology school! We are so proud of her! She put in over 1500 hours to get certified in Ohio (in comparison, kids in Ohio who attend public school only go 920 hours). Before she went to do this, … Continue reading Morgan graduated!!!

Little farm boy
We came late to the farming venture. Our kids are now 25, 21 1/2, 16 1/2, and 9 1/2 years old. We always had some chickens scratching around and sometimes a goat, but Jake is the only one that's grown up with pretty much all of these farm animals constantly around...and he loves them all. … Continue reading Little farm boy
Goin’ huntin’ (but not really)
Ted got a new toy on his way home from work Monday. I mentioned to him over his vacation that I saw a fly repellent gun at the feed store last summer, but I hadn't seen it since then. He was vaguely interested, but he didn't seem to be paying much attention, and … Continue reading Goin’ huntin’ (but not really)
Happy Father’s Day!
I finally got a picture of all the kids with Ted!!! We took this after going to see Finding Dory together as a family (it's great by the way). Teddy, Morgan (Teddy's wife), David (Janeesa's boyfriend), Janeesa, Jake, Ted, and Sahara

Summer break is here!
I'm so happy right now! My summer break officially starts as of 5pm today! I never know who's happier about summer vacation...students or teachers (but I have an inkling as to who it is). There are four big home projects on my summer to do list: 1. Finish painting and putting furniture together for Sahara's … Continue reading Summer break is here!
Chantilly Lace and a Pretty Face
After Ronnie loaded up Beef, we hitched up our little trailer and headed for his big farm to get our trade: an eight month old Charlois heifer! We had to wait until Ronnie got there, and then Ted and Ronnie herded her into the barnyard and then the barn... Barn cat hanging out at Ronnie's … Continue reading Chantilly Lace and a Pretty Face
Beef has left the building
Looking to buy meat for your freezer locally? Ron Manning is who you want to see! Ronnie came over Thursday evening to pick up Beef. Ted got him in the back corner near the barn and fed him a treat, and I put down the electric polyrope and had Ronnie back his trailer straight up … Continue reading Beef has left the building
Bad dogs and dumb chickens
These are bad dogs (sometimes). They're usually great, but every spring, they hear the call of the wild and go into straight up wolf mode, killing any chicken that gets outside the chicken yard. Last week, they killed three. They don't even eat them; they just break their necks and leave them near the fence … Continue reading Bad dogs and dumb chickens
This little piggy went to market
Well, not to market - to be processed. A reality show crew should have taped us last night. Ratings would have been super high, and people would have laughed and laughed. Ted took scraps into the trailer, and Bitsy went right in there. Dixie took a few seconds of coaxing because she just didn't like … Continue reading This little piggy went to market
