Life Lately

I know I'm not the only one, but holy smokes y'all life is a little crazy right now! 

My last post was all about the excitement leading up to seeing Mr. Garth Brooks in concert (which was AMAZING and will get it's own dedicated post at some point), but while that was happening I was also busy tying up loose ends at work, cleaning out my office and saying good-byes at my old job! 

Yep, I left my job with U of I Extension.  I was sad to leave some of the fantastic people I worked with, but the opportunity for change was so enticing I couldn't resist!  And I'm so stinking excited about it!!

In this new position, I will be going into local schools and sharing information on all sorts of ag-related topics with students and teachers through hands-on activities and curriculum.  I could walk in the store room where the kits are kept and literally teach about more than 50 topics...
Corn.
Hydroponics.
Careers in Ag. 
Horses. 
Embryology. 
Biotech. 
Pumpkins. 
Apples. 
Weather. 
Horticulture.
Soils.
The list goes on and on!

On top of just starting a new job, there was also a big educational event scheduled for this week!  In two days time, we hosted 38 teachers and 912 students at our local community college to teach them about agriculture, conservation and food through demonstrations and learning stations. 

To sum it up, this week has been like trying to drink water from a fire hose...
