I feel spring is in the air! Now, only a few short months until summer. This summer however, will be very different from the rest. For as long as I can remember every summer I would spend alternating between my grandmother’s house and the farm. Each year I could not wait for school to finally be out, and I would be home free. This was a very busy time of year, but it was spent doing the things that I loved. You would never see me inside the house, whether it was helping plant our summer crops, raking hay, or going to fairs. I always loved the outdoors and getting to spend every moment of it with my family and friends was always my favorite part.
This summer will be much different. I will be starting my new summer adventure in Jefferson City as an intern for the Missouri Department of Agriculture. I am very excited for this amazing opportunity, but I will miss my summer on the farm. Even though my summer won’t be spent at home, I am still excited for great things to come this summer. I cannot wait to meet new people and begin this new chapter in my life.
