Just because you can eat something, doesn’t mean you should

Jon Johnston

I hope everyone had a great Mother’s Day weekend. There were also a lot of graduations, university and high school. There is much to celebrate all around us!

Ranchhands 1 and 2 are done with their finals and #2 is moving back home for the summer. #1 is going to remain a full time student this summer. I’m impressed he is working so hard to make up some lost time after he changed majors. It was a good change. He went from being noticeably stressed and unhappy to making the dean’s list.

Seeing your kid happy is something every mother treasures.

We’ve also got bonus baseball today as the Huskers finish out their four game pod against Rutgers this morning. With a win, the Huskers will go 3-1 on the weekend but a loss will mean 2-2. After last weeken’d dismal performance, I went into the weekend thinking that 2-2 would be good enough. Now, I’m back to being a greedy fan and want to see another resounding win.

Go Big Red!
