Here is number 5

This post will resonate with parents and teachers especially. When you are living in the minute you loose sight of time passing. Before you know it days turn into years. This is the way I feel about two events that happened this year. First is the high school graduation of the 4-H kids who were with me when the program was started at the Farm. For the last 10 years these kids have been here so much that for many of them it was like a second home at times. To see them graduate was strangely, unexpected. New kids have come into the fold but the "first class" will always have a special place with me.

The other event that provided a highlight this year was the marriage of our first intern Jami. When the museum started out there was a lot of work and not many us around to do it. Jami quickly moved from intern to staff member and friend.

These two events were definitely highlights for 2011
