I enjoyed reading this article very much. It reminds me of stories my parents told me about their growing up in Croatia and the farm life with plenty of work to be had all the time. (I am assuming Mr. Jelich's heredity is also from the region given his name). School was indeed a fun thing and a big privilege. How times have changed!

Thank you for writing this article!
