Decision Made

After months of being torn between choosing The United States Naval Academy or the Agricultural Systems Management Program at The Ohio State University, my son will be.........A BUCKEYE!  My son will be following his passion in life and pursuing an Agricultural degree at OSU.  For the past few months, we have talked of nothing else.  It was hard to make this huge decision and I am so proud of him for knowing what he loves most in life and for pursuing that dream.  Ever since he could walk, my son has loved farming and animals and agriculture.  It is really what makes my son who he is.  When we moved to Yesteryear Acres, his favorite thing of all, wasn't our house, but our land.  Feeding the cows was his absolute favorite moment of every day.
He is still that same boy - but all grown up. A few weeks ago, my son's teacher asked him to close his eyes and imagine a scene that brings him complete peace and happiness.  The second he closed his eyes, my son pictured a field of corn with the cornstalks blowing in the wind.  When he told me that, I said, "See? THAT is what you love!" If you do what you LOVE you will never consider your work to be "work" ... what you do will be what you love! I am so happy for so many reasons.  Most importantly, I am happy for my son and his future and that he will be doing what he loves.  BUT - I am also happy because he is not leaving home, and I can see him, and he will be around, and I won't have to miss him terribly.  My son will remain part of the Yesteryear Acres business and will still be involved with our Doodle Doggies and Doodle Puppies and all the joys and happinesses in our life here at Yesteryear Acres. I am one PROUD and HAPPY mama!!!!!! We have a farmer in the house! :)
