Hello, I'm Jennifer's daughter, Grace. I'm gonna tell you some things about living the farm.
It's not easy growing up on the farm. You do get to see some pretty cool things, like cows giving birth, watching corn and beans grow, and watching hay get bailed. It is really hard to let the cows go but, then you know that you are feeding a family. But there is no way to change that. I'm really happy to have a family and the chance to see these things and live on a farm.

What are your favorite baby animals or memories from growing up on a farm? If you don't live on a farm, what else could we teach you about farming? Comment below to tell us.
For those of you that have been my friends on social media, you may remember the days of my blog Just A Mom Giving It A “Tri”. If so, I hope you are as excited as I am for this new adventure with Tails From The Gravel Road. Hopefully, everyone understands my play on words with “tails” instead of “tales.” My plan for this blog is to share:
- the funny and sometimes “not so funny” stories of farm life
- health and wellness
- life at the Schmitt house (recipes, tips, tricks, parenting)
- personal development
-my wellness journey
Since the last time I wrote on Just A Mom Giving It A Tri there have been so many changes. At that time I was a stay at home mom, my husband always laughed when I told people I was a stay at home mom. The mileage on my vehicle told a little different story as I was leading fitness classes, Weight Watchers meetings, and the girls and I didn’t exactly stay home much. 🙂 In September of 2015, I had surgery as a result of my battle with crohn's disease. Now, I am working full time as a special education consultant and while I haven’t been blogging I have continued my writing (more on that soon.) I now find myself trying to find balance with work, home, marriage, farm life, parenting, life with crohn’s disease, and fitness. Lord knows it’s not easy, but I am still trying.
Thanks for joining me on this new adventure! I can’t wait to share more of what has been happening in the last few years and the years to come. Be sure to check out the other pages on the website in the menu above.
