The F.S. teaching tool is really neat, for those of you who are not familiar with it. A few years ago, my cousin in Ohio was in grade school and she sent me her F.S. to take with me and photograph on my ranch. I then had to print the pictures and send them, along with Stanley, back to her to show her classmates. It is a great opportunity to learn more about a different part of America, and even a different way of life.
Today's F.S. has been all over the place, and that was made possible by the Internet. My friend, Janice Person, posted a pdf file of her nephew's F.S. to print, cut out and then take along with me. I just had to take a few pictures with F.S. in them and email them back to her. Pretty easy and a great way to connect with a classroom full of kids!
Then F.S. and I drove to the feed yard where we have a pen of steers that we raised. They look great despite the cold weather.
Taking F.S. with me and taking pictures of the various things that I did today helped me with some new ideas for blog posts! So watch the next few weeks as I tell more about each of these things in detail. Also, we are expecting our first calf the end of this month, so I promise to share photos (and videos, if possible) of our new babies on the ranch. Hopefully some of the snow will melt before then.
Thanks, Flat Stanley, for hanging out with me today...I enjoyed it! (And thanks Janice, for asking!) Here is a link to Janice's blog about Flat Stanley!
