Miss Ciara Takes The Crown

Kim's niece Ciara, (Miaya's honorary big sister) was elected fall Homecoming Queen tonight.  A nice honor for a  great girl.

How Tough Was Your School?

Country Schools were located so students seldom had to travel over 2 to 3 miles to school, usually on foot.  Many schools were simply identified by the section or township they were located in, often with a number.  Here in Southwest Iowa, many counties have identified the location of these schools, and placed marker signs.  Sometimes these schools were named for a nearby family, or a geographical feature.  A few of them, well take a look at a couple.

It's situated in a low lying area not far from a river, so the name makes sense.

Well, um, I guess, um, I just don't know. But, it was probably a tough school!
