We are in full swing for fair

Summer is sadly dwindling down.

Honestly it will feel over on Monday.

Daily football practices start.  Matching band the following week.

Judging for still projects is next Sunday.  This means, although they haven’t procrastinated much this summer,  they are all scrambling to finish project books.

Amanda is busy baking her last loaves of bread for “Yeast Breads”.

Mike has three projects (his choice) so he overwhelmed.  He is done with “Fun with Flight”.  Almost done with Grill Master”.  But he still has activities for “Tractor 3”

Daily haltering of calves and steer is very time consuming.  At least an hour in the barn every evening.

Every now and then you just get a great picture. Amanda with Frosty.

Livestock interview judging is in 2 weeks.  Kids need to get busy studying.

While I love fair, this nonstop chaos is exhausting!

  1. Hi, I found the link to your blog via modernfarmwife. I am so glad to have found a variety of bloggers who are also dairy farmers’ wives. I too am a dairy farmer’s wife who was born in the big city. Like you, I am learning to raise my kids (4 yrs and 20mths) as farm kids even though the only thing I know is how I was raised to be a big city kid. Last year’s fair season our oldest, then 3, showed her first calf. What an exciting adventure this is! Glad to “meet you!”
