Detasseling

Hello all, I know I missed last weeks post but I’m going to blame the on the fact that detasseling started last Friday. Yes we’ve been detasseling for a week now and we’re still having fun. No but really it’s not too bad; we get to be in a field to see the sunrise, find…

Happy Birthday to me

Hello all, this week was our family adventure. We started out by going down to St. Louis to see my Aunt, Uncle, and cousins. While there we went to the science center, a history museum and a Cardinals game. The science center was really neat and the game was good after the sun went down….

Simple week

Not much happened this week in Kearney , I had a safety meeting for detasseling but otherwise we really didn’t have anything scheduled. This gave me time to read, play video games and be with Megan.

The 7th graders took their human body test yesterday and started their semester reviews and the bio students did likewise today. Those tests went well, which is nice for our last one of the semester. The seniors…

Seniors last week and state trap

It was the last week at Kearney Catholic for seniors and as such it’s always an interesting week. There’s a mix of excitement to be done and sadness to leave, but overall I think the week went well. We finished up with a test in advanced biology and then some more labs in chem. I…

Pig week!

The biggest thing we did this week in my class was dissect fetal pigs. We spent 4 days dissecting them and looked at their digestive, respiratory, cardiovascular, urinary, and nervous systems. It’s a fun lab and really helps wrap up the year in advanced bio. The 7th graders have started the human body and the…
