Usually there's some trouble, but it's one big family here. There's so much diversity and love and there is some struggle, but it seems to bring everyone closer together.

Des Moines has a pretty good hands on education program where the teachers can work with the kids one on one because we are so small. They also really care about your success and stay on you to keep your grades up. I wish that there were more opportunities besides Ag as an elective.
