I am a farm girl, married to my high school sweetheart. We grew up on farms 9 miles apart and went through 12 years of school together. I liked him in grade school, but it took until we were Juniors in high school to get him interested in me as more than a friend. I have never lived more than 10 miles from home, except in college, but have travelled as far as France, Germany and Switzerland. We live on our own farm and have raised three of our six kids. The last three are growing up fast.
On Sunday W. turned 11. We went to the zoo in the afternoon, and it turned out to be a very giraffe-y day. She got "Willow" the stuffed giraffe for a gift, and we saw the new three-day-old giraffe at the zoo, along with a hungry giraffe.
