A Lazy Day-Z

After a busy week and a crazy Saturday taking 6 kids out to lunch a movie today has been rather lazy. Despite a catching a few minutes of several Lifetime and Food Network shows, nothing great has been accomplished!
Well, I should say my kids have accomplished a lot.
They have made sushi and chop suey for brunch with orange cookies for dessert!

We have several new Lego constructions including eagles, 4- wheelers, and alien battleships.

In efforts to avoid all naps we have read to babies, fed them, sung to them and rocked them so that they could sleep and wake up happy.

If that wasn't enough they all got along!
Despite the chaos that my house looks like when you walk in the door, our lazy day is one that was well spent.

Laundry and floor washing can always wait. I might as well make it worth the effort and tackle a LARGE pile instead of a medium one and scrub a few more spots off the floor if I am going to do a few. Right?

Here's to hoping others have moments like this today too!

Blogging Buddy Ben!

Hi,I am Ben.
I am 10 years old and excited to be able to start blogging with my mom. I attended a presentation in January that talked about Farmers and Ranchers and how they are reaching out to the consumers through the internet with tools such as Twitter, Facebook, Skype and blogging.

Michelle Payne -Knoper taught us that we need to get the consumers' attention. Sometimes people don't have the time to go to a speaker, but they may have the time to send a quick message or ask a question. So, that is when people started using social media to make connections to people that they do and do not know to share information.

It is important for people in agriculture to talk about what they do each day because most people do not know what happens on our farms and ranches and why they are important to our country. Did you know that each American Farmer is responsible for feeding 155 people? Well, it's true! They also work hard to make fuel and clothing and even things like crayons!

The next time I blog with my mom, we will have some facts about some of the cool things I am learning in ND History!
