Here is an aerial photo of our farmstead. The uppermost building is our house. The largest red and white building is the machine storage shed. The top of the photo is east. Thanks to Elton and Sue Goeman, who took the picture and shared it with us. Photo was taken
dear husband (DH) (or any other D word one cares to substitute depending on the
mood) is the sole breadwinner for our clan. Russ is a warehouse examiner
employed with the Minnesota Department of Agriculture. He holds a second job raising corn and
soybeans on our farm, located southwest of Lamberton.
Russell's hobbies include real and model trains, aviation, carpentry, antique

I am a stay-at-home-mom of three exceptionally beautiful children; Joel, age 8; Jamie, age 6; and Jack, age 2 1/2. I enjoy doing crafts, including scrapbooking, quilting, cross-stitch, and crochet; reading; playing with my kids; cheering for the CUBS; and "computering". I am proud to have been elected to the Red Rock Central Board of Education in 2000 and I presently serve as clerk of the board. This web page is my new-found hobby. I graduated from SDSU in 1992.
Joel is our 8-year-old son. He is definitely becoming his own man. His passions are construction equipment; farm implements; and computer games (in that order). He is in second grade with Mrs. Vind at RRC Elementary in Jeffers. He has recently discovered the Star Wars movies and likes them a lot! He (along with million of other fans) can’t figure out why they are making Episode 3 last though…
Jamie is our 6-year-old daughter, going on 15. She is in all-day everyday K with Mrs. Paplow at RRC Elementary in Jeffers. She loves it but it’s pretty easy for her which is not so good for Mrs. Paplow J. Jamie would never admit it but she loves her brothers very much, especially when she can get them to do her dirty work. Jamie’s a Barbie girl – anything pink has got to be good. She is truly a tender soul and that's really what counts.
Jack is the newest Derickson in the county, born in June 2002. He’s not so much a baby anymore
though. He is growing up way too fast
– he keeps us all busy making sure he’s not getting into
anything! He loves animals (especially
Bob); M&Ms; coloring; Dora the Explorer; and Blue’s Clues.
I would love to get feedback from anyone who happens upon this site.
