At The Ranches, “Back to School” is always exciting.
It’s hard to believe that another school year is already upon us. It seems like just yesterday we were celebrating the end of school and enjoying the relaxed pace that Summer brings. Despite my objections to Summer going by so quickly, another school year has begun and cooler temperatures are on the way. Fortunately for me, fresh green chile is also on the way.
In addition to getting back to a more rigid schedule, we also have the pleasure of attending the county fairs around the state. The vast majority of our meat supply for the year will be donated by generous donors at these fairs. Harding County is usually first and always generous. We will conclude “Fair Season” at the Southwestern New Mexico State Fair in Deming on October 7th. If you’re going to the Fair in your area, please look for us.
In addition to the excitement and activity, there is also another side to “back to school,” at The Ranches. This can be a very stressful time for kids and parents. New teachers, friends who moved away, different schedules and new expectations can be very difficult for kids. Particularly those transitioning from Middle School to High School. As a parent, I can empathize with anyone going through this transition and have struggled at times to help my kids adjust.
