Farm Boy Friday

My Generation

Feeling low? Here's a look at everything that's right and good in our world.

Once upon a time, it stopped raining, and I was able to get in my car, drive to a farm, and shoot some photos. It was glorious. The sky was blue, the sun was shining, the clouds were fluffy. It was just two days ago. And a little farm boy named Chase got out of school early. Just in time for the Prairie Farmer photo shoot.

And if you're feeling a bit down today - maybe you still have a lot to plant? And it's still raining? And there's no end in sight? Take a look at this little guy. Because as I stood there and talked with his dad about planting technology, Chase scooted off to the barn and came back with a five-gallon bucket, filled with barn kittens.

Seriously. It doesn't get any better than this.

 

Chase Olson cleared out of second grade just in time to arrive home for a photo shoot. And then he brought out the kittens.
