What's the big deal about Young Living

First Day of School

Today was the first day back to school for the children in our town. I'm sure there were countless children all across town who rose in the wee hours this morning to get ready for going back to school.

Likewise, the administration and students of the Smockity Frocks Academy woke while it was still dark and dressed to get ready for a big day.

These are the things that were reviewed and reinforced today:

1. The fish bite best in the early morning hours.

2. Teamwork makes things easier.

3. A one year old is not too young to begin driving lessons.

4. Cows will walk a long way to get a cool drink from a spring fed pond.

5. 83 years old is still young enough to move them little dogies along.
