Polk County Fair
The Polk County Fair was this past week and we had a ball. The goats didn't place well because they were sick but I feel like the fair was a success over all. Kyle got 3rd place in junior showmanship which I was very proud of, especially since this was his first year. Taylor did well despite the fact that she had a sick goat, she placed 7th in the goat show but was up against some stiff competition in showmanship and didn't place. I was very proud of both of them. Charlotte won 2nd place in the dog show on Saturday for the cutest trick...she sang "happy birthday" and won the crowd over. I got one blue ribbon for my photography and one 3rd place.
Rodney and I worked in the concession stand Saturday evening which is always a hoot.
I always come away from community functions with a since of pride. It makes my heart happy to know that I live in a place where every person is like a family member. To be around others who share in this great occupation of agriculture is affirming to my own life. When we struggle daily with the trials of farming, something is set at ease to know that others have struggled and succeded.
