Last spring Mark and I were selected as one of the top three finalist in the state for the Farm Bureau Achievement Award. This is a farm management contest Farm Bureau does for young farmers. After several months of waiting we found out we won! We will represent Iowa in Nashville next month. We're looking forward to this very much!
The Young Farmer Awards Luncheon.
They make a short video of each family, here's Mark on the big screen.
Temple Grandin was one of the speakers. I really enjoyed her! There's a movie about her Mark and I watched before we heard her speak. I recommend it, it's called Temple Grandin, you can get it at Family Video for $1.
They had several big screens lining the hallway with slide shows. They used a picture of our kids and also one of Mark and his brothers.
We won this Gator as part of our prize for this contest!
