New Ranch Project: Miniature Donkeys

Yep, so I decided to buy a mini jenny (miniature female donkey) yesterday as my new school/farm project!  The front pasture is getting quite tall and we needed a cheap way to mow our lawn, and she's a perfect choice!  My brother bought a john (castrated donkey), and together, we're working on halter training them both.

We've only had them for a day and already have halters on them.  They're leading quite well for how stubborn donkeys can be  :)

That was pretty much it for today

Homeschool Field Trip: Meet the Governor

So our family and another homeschooled family decided to take a little road trip down to the OSU Auditorium to meet our Oklahoma Governor and hear her speak.  We had a nice drive in the pouring rain!
Headed to Tulsa in the pouring rain!
Where is our freedom now?

Unfortunately, the meeting was largely centered around science and technology, instead of focusing our destroyed liberties.

During this meeting, the Governor allowed some of the citizens to ask questions publicly, and my dad was able to get a question in.  Later, we met Mary and spoke with her for a bit.  She hates the constitution and does not know what freedom is all about, since she, at the Oklahoma State Convention this year, called Ron Paul supporters "Obama supporters".  She also endorsed Mitt Romney for president, the candidate who supports the National Defense Authorization Act, which allows for indefinite detention of any American citizen, without charge, trial or due process of law.  So, the way I see it is, big government against the people!

Anyway, the drive back was a blast, filled with singing, junking out on candy bars, and good conversations!

JUNK FOOD  -  I rarely eat this kinda stuff, but hey, we were on a road trip  :)

Politics is a large part of my life right now, since it involves our liberties being taken away piece by piece.  I'll try and post more!
