When I was younger I was a little rude kid now that I look back at myself I regret what I did and it is kind of embarrassing. Although when I got out of hand when Remi was around I learned my lesson. He taught me a lot about respect and how to behave twards people and when you are around other people. The reason I listened to him was he was not a usual relative where I could act how I wanted around him. No not around Remi, Remi would bend you over and whip you out in front of anybody if what you had done was significant enough. So I feared and respected him. He was always the guy I did not want to disappoint and the guy who I did not want anybody to tell how I have been acting. I was embarrassed if he found out what I had done I would feel like I let him down. Now that I look at it that is a good thing because that would teach me my lesson. I would not want Remi to find out that I did something bad so I would think twice before doing something he would not approve. His discipline also flowed over into sports.

I get to run equipment like that for him because he trusts me that I know what I am doing. He trusts me because he taught me how to do it. Besides equipment he taught me how to take care of cattle year round. It requires a lot of hard work and dedication but our family has been doing it for a long time so we know what we are doing. He taught me about calving and how important it is to take care and keep a close eye on your cattle all throughout the night. Calving for us happens in the winter so the weather is most of the time a huge factor in life or death to the calf if a human is not around to take care of it. There are consequences for making a mistake or sometimes accidents happen, but ultimately it teaches you the great responsibility of taking care of your cattle. He also taught me about vaccination which usually occurs at brandings in the summer making sure your herd stays healthy. Other than cattle you have to grow your crops which help feed your cattle all through the winter. He taught me about seeding and harvesting how certain crops are better for your cattle
