Just livin' Life

Howdy folks!
Yep, I'm still around.  With the sun shining and life busy, there is little time for the computer and all that fun stuff.....so I've been slow on getting around to posting. 

My weekend was pretty fun, starting with Friday.  Abigail and I were out of the house at 6:15 on our way to an FFA contest.  We have a team of five that competed in a contest called Agriculture and Natural Resources Communication (ANR Comm.).  Each one of us had different practicums, News Article, Press Release, Graphic Design, Web Design, and Broadcasting.  I did the Press Release, which is a paper about 250 words.  Short n' sweet. :)  Our topic was "Wind Power", a pretty hot topic here in Michigan.  However, there's not much controversy, so that's makes it a little more difficult to write on.  Anyway, our chapter brought up over 80 students, so that was pretty cool!

Saturday I got to babysit two very adorable little ones, a little girl of 4 and little one-year-old boy.  They were here from 8:30 in the morning until about 5:30 at night.  It was fun to have a baby in the house again!  That evening, Abigail, Rachel and I went to a fondue party with a church youth group.  We had meats, veggies, bread, cheeses, and fruits/chocolate!  It tasted great! 

Sunday, I attended a livestock judging competition.  I haven't judged and given oral reasons since Nationals, so it's been a while.  I ended up getting my two best sets of reasons, a 46 and a 47 (out of 50).  I placed 3rd overall in reasons and 5th overall score.  I was really excited, as it my best judging day ever. 

Today I cleaned out the pole barn and we got 60 new chicks!  We're working on getting ready for our first show which is coming up in a few weeks.  I also have FFA Regional Camp this week, so I will be finding out the results of Regional officers and hopefully our new chapter team will become a real team.  :)

Here are just a few pics I took today!

Chicks!!!

Athena, one of my fav. kids from this year.
Several of our kids getting their supper!  Notice the two brown does nearest the top of the pic have their necks crossed! :D
Just one of my sweeties!

Hope you week is going well!

In Christ,
