Calvin-Student of the Month

Calvin was honored with Student of the Month for November from his kindergarten teacher, Mrs. Cope. He was presented an award in an assembly at school. Mrs. Cope said this about him, "Calvin: C is for conscientious and caring, A is for awesome work habits, L is for his loving nature, V is for vim and vigor as he plays, I is for interested in all new things he learns and N is for nice guy all around! Here's to you, Calvin." He has such a sweet teacher! He said that he was kind of shy as he got the award. I was able to go and stand by him as he was honored in front of the school. We all love Calvin and are glad that he is such a special part of our family!
(Calvin and his cousin, Briley are best buds.)

Doesn't it look good!

On Monday, my Dad called me and asked if I wanted to go with John and him down to Thatcher to see Brittany and baby Mayley. I was so excited! Devin and Ashton went with us. It was so much fun to see them. Don't I look like a natural? I think that I will need alot of practicing holding a girl before I will ever have one. So that means I will have to hold Mayley alot!

Branding Calves

The day after Thanksgiving, we went to my parent's house and helped with branding the calves. There were three to brand and our family got to do one. There are so many pictures to see. To read the whole story and to see more pictures, go to the Reed Family Blog.
Here we are holding down the calf. Each boy has a different part of the calf to hold.
Ben did the branding. Doesn't he look so handsome?
All of the smoke went right into our faces and just stayed there. For those of you who don't know, it really stinks! It smells like burning hair, but worse!
This was before the branding actually began. The boys were listening to Grandpa Reed give the instructions.
Here we are getting the calf situated. We had to throw down the calf two times. It was a strong little bull calf. Click on the above link to see the throwing of the calf.
