Fair Preparations

Fair time is coming up in just a few weeks so the whole family has been busy either working on fair projects or just other random stuff. Mom, Rachel, Rebekah and Ben were at doctor's appointments the last 2 days (they stayed the night at my grandparents house since they live closer to the hospitals) so the rest of us were holding up the fort here. I got all of my buyer letters sent out, got some canning done, worked a bunch with my pig, started management records and started work on a short story and poetry. I still have a bunch more to do and I'm hoping to get to my goat educational exhibit and swine breeding poster today. I'm waiting on a phone call with my information on my gilt before I can get to the breeding poster though. Here are just a few pictures I took last night.

The girls(Rachel, Elizabeth and a friend) working with their 4-H project....dogs!

How is everyone's summer going? I have been busy but I'm enjoying life.

God bless!

Ok, if the header on your blog is your house, you need to come and help me design my flower garden. :) I will leave the light on for you!!!!

Marci, the picture is of our house. The front garden is a flower/herb garden and that back garden is our vegetable garden. I personally don't do much of the gardening, I do more with the animals. My mom and dad really enjoy gardening. :)
Thank you for stopping by my blog!
