10th Grade :: Here's To Kids Who Are Different

Here's to the kids who are different, 
The kids who don't always get A's 
The kids who have ears twice the size of their peers, 
 And noses that go on for days. 

Here's to the kids who are different, 
The kids they call crazy or dumb, 
The kids who don't fit, with the guts and the grit, 
Who dance to a different drum. 

Here's to the kids who are different, 
The kids with the mischievous streak, 
For when they have grown, as history's shown, 
It's their difference that makes them unique.

Kaishon is excited for this new school year. For the first time in my life, I was not sad when it was time for school to start. 

Kaishon is very independent. It has been hard for me to step back and let him fly. 

The teenage years have definitely given us a jolt, but I know in the big picture of things, we will survive these difficult days. 


I didn't blog when Kaishon was in Kindergarten or 1st grade but I will find pictures for both of those years so I can make this time line complete.

a Farmer hard at work: Willard Geissinger

“Farming is a profession of hope” 
 Brian Brett

Willard Geissinger has been a farmer for a very long time.
On his farm in Montgomery County, Pennsylvania,
he has plowed, planted and pereservered through season after season.

Willard loves John Deere tractors. This one is his favorite. It can only be started by spinning the fly wheel. It is not a job for the faint of heart. 

Willard still gets up every morning and works on the farm. There are always jobs to be found. I loved hearing some of his stories.

Do you have a great work photo to share?
