It’s fair time at the farm, and wow – what a busy week. Between running forth to the fairgrounds, milking goats, unloading hay wagons, getting the children ready for school and the two full-time off farm jobs we hold, it amazing that we are able to do this week at all. It’s great fun for the kids and full of important life lessons that are unique to growing up on a farm. Madeline showed what another year of goat handling and learning can do, as she won “junior showmanship” this year. She took one of my favorite Does “Gloria” to fair this year, and they both did great. I couldn’t stand the pressure, and Madeline was so tired when she got home, she tried to go to sleep with her clothes on.
