Fair in full swing

Here's a look at our home this week, pre-agricultural rush.

The hard part is over.  The outcomes are in.

Today's judging was a real nail biter.  It's way fun when you win.  But, this year's meat poultry fourth placement comes with a whole lotta lessons to teach my young folks.  Like working hard and being proud of your work when you've given it your all.  And learning what you can do better next year.  And being gracious when you loose.  And being humble when you win.  And looking at all the good stuff that goes on outside of competition that makes this experience so worthwhile.

Like being together.

And having fun.

And appreciation for a bed and a good nights sleep.

  1. I LOVE that picture of Eliza in the wagon. Can't I have her? Please? I'll trade you Adam for her. He's already potty trained.
