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.
We took an end-of-semester field trip to St. Louis last week. Husband goes every year a couple of times for national soybean board meetings. I went once with him last year and knew there was a lot of cool and interesting things to do, so this year we took the girls along.
Hubby was usually in meetings, but had a couple of hours one afternoon, so we all went up in the Arch. Really cool.
You can feel it sway in the wind a little, and the views are fantastic. The big girls and I stayed to do the museum and gift shops while Husband and W. headed back to the motel for some down time before his next meeting started.
We stayed at the Ballpark Hilton, right next to Busch stadium and the Old Courthouse downtown.
