Daily Life for Darrell

Daily life for Darrell consisted of taking care of 5 boys and handling a dairy farm. He had a lot of things on his plate. He was in the military he had to be prepared if he had to be called in for duty. His wife Ione had to take care of the farm and the employes and the 5 kids they had when he went for duty. The employes they had for the farm had to be paid so half of their pay was food. Ione would get up every morning and make Darrell and the boys an the employes breakfast, then send the boys off to school and wash Darrells work clothes. Then when it was lunch time she would make Darrells lunch hers and the employes lunch. They woud eat then go back to work. If they had to work late she would also make the boys Darrells and the employes dinner. She did a lot of work. Darrell had to do much more though he had to work and maintain the farm. He had to make sure he had loyal employes. That was much of thier life.
