We salute our law enforcement officers everywhere! These brave officers know the cost of doing their job ... they know the cost could be so high, yet they put on that uniform every day, they say good bye to their family; these brave men and women stand between us and harm’s way each and every day. We can never say ‘Thank You’ enough! From the bottom of our hearts we are so grateful. May God protect our men and women in blue!
This week our family received the most amazing package in the mail! Seeing the box was marked fragile we couldn’t wait to see what was inside. Opening it very carefully, we were so excited to see a dozen little quail eggs. Upon reaching further into the package we discovered a delightful jar of homemade Goats Milk Lotion! It feels so smooth and creamy; what wonderful gifts we received! Grandsons Cody and Cooper immediately headed out to the barn, those prized quail eggs are already in the incubator. Soon we will have more quail in Valley Home. We send a huge ‘Thank You’ to the Tayler and Nabors Family Farm in Alturas, California. We miss you in Valley Home but love to see your happiness in Alturas!
This week we send congratulations to all our area graduates! It is indeed a very special time of the year. You have worked so hard and have gone through so much ... may your futures be bright and be filled with great happiness! We offer congratulations to our Valley Home School eighth grade class. Our 2021 eighth graders graduate Wednesday, May 19. We are so happy they will have an in person graduation, even though socially distanced. Our Valley Home Kindergartners have already graduated and are looking forward to first grade. We are so proud of each of you!
