Rural Wisconsin Cheese Store


We drove to Wisconsin to have dinner with some new friends.  They used this cheese store in Alpha as a landmark. It is always fun to visit the country and see the moon and stars so clearly!

History Day Judging


Today I had to fill in as a History Day judge for awhile.  I’ve had to do it each of the past 3 years. It is always interesting to see the variety of topics and exhibits. I did History Day in junior high and went to state both years by doing a performance. 7th grade was the Underground Railroad with a friend – we were runaway slaves. 8th grade was about World War II – I portrayed my Grandpa’s experience as a radioman on a cruiser in the South Pacific. Both were done in front of the entire student body! Obviously, they were valuable experiences.
