It takes him a little bit longer to put on his orthotics and get to the milk barn. Then, he goes to the barn and milk cows along with his dad, Mom, grandfather, Uncle, and whoever else is there willing to help (his sister when she comes in from college). Everyone has their own different and specific jobs to do. Dianna says “We’ve always made him do things just like any of our other kids. We just always told him to do it in the way that he could do it.” After the morning milking, Ethan comes home and eats breakfast.
Farm kids were accustomed to hard work, starting their days at 4:30 in the morning and ending after 8:30 at night. Moreover, they could do everything, without any experiences; they had a sense of fixing and designing by instinct. For example, Charles Briscoe fixed his neighbor’s tractor. Of course he had never fixed it before, but he disassembled the tractor, changed broken parts, and reassemble it. Charles Briscoe also became working at Boeing, and took a big role for designing B-29, which dropped the atomic bomb on Hiroshima.
Every Sunday morning I walk into the kitchen just to speak to him about hunting and fishing, and he treats me like a son. He is a very charismatic person and brings many people to church on his own. I could not imagine church without him, as he carries the offering plate and speaks the bible verses of the day every week in front of the congregation. Everyone in our church family loves him and he is a role model to many of the children. I have never heard him make a smart remark or get angry at anyone.

Sunday Schooler Being a part of Sunday school brought me so much joy growing up. It taught me about the bible, how to respect others, and what it looks like to have a relationship with Jesus. My teachers always made it so fun that we never wanted to leave. I don’t know where I would be today if it wasn’t for my Sunday school teachers. I knew I would always leave on Sunday with the sweet aftertaste of animal crackers in my mouth and glue peeling from my fingertips from our messy, half-done craft from the lesson each week.
I remember as a little kid always wanting to see that house again, always wanting to go back and finish our game of hide n’ seek in the barn one last time. I remember running wild with my brothers, driving tractors with dad and baking cookies with ma’ for dad when he came in from a hard day at work. I remember ma’ always pushing me on that swing where we would laugh and have fun. I remember dad teaching me how to drive a tractor and how to shoot a gun. But times got tough after dad had to serve in the war.

Also, he was forced to work in several jobs. When he turned 10, he worked in many jobs such as farmer, streetcar conductor, railroad fireman and insurance salesman.
I spend every weekend and all summer out in the open, on the farm. When growing up I would always go out to the farm and help both my dad and grandfather. While attending school and exploring other career choices, it helped me realized that I do not like being indoors. After looking at the other career paths it made me realize that I do not wish to be in an officer or a firefighter anymore, however I would like to be out in the open. With me being outside in the field it helped
