Farm Family Pictures


Below is the audio from the Farm Family of the Week WOW TV show from Omaha, Nebraska. We are all on it including Bridget who screamed the whole time. Mom and Dad are very clear on it.

I have also included a text file of papers Mom filled out to get The Annual Nebraska Honor Farm Family Award in 1955. She didn't get it but was interesting reading. Makes you understand what hard working parents we had and how they worked together as a team to make it work. Go to the below file and read it. Very interesting.
