Good morning my fellow bloggers! It's been a while since I've posted anything here and I just thought I'd update everyone on the happenings around here. :) Not that much is really going on.....but anyway.
School is keeping everyone occupied this time of year. The school kids are doing well at school and always come home with plenty of stories. I'm loving my classes at the careers center, been keeping busy with getting ready for chicks and working on livestock judging stuff. This morning we get at total of 200 chicks into the center (dividing them up into 8 groups) and we'll be raising them for a state competition in 6 weeks. Our livestock judging team is also off the a fair about 45 min. away to get some livestock judging in. We are in a frenzy getting ready for the National competition in about 3 weeks.
My 6 week project at the careers center is a micro-organism project. I have 3 organisms so far and need to get at least 7 more. I'm hoping to find a pond that I get go gather some from once the weather clears up. It's been cold, nasty and rainy for a few days here. Here is a pictures of one of the organisms I found. Pretty cool, huh? I also found an Aquatic Sowbug (Subphylum Crustacea; Order Isopoda) and a Scud ( Subphylum Crustacea, Order Amphipoda). They are both in the “Shredder” feeding group. The one in the picture I think is a Caddisfly Larva, Order Trichoptera. The feeding group varies.
