Judging results and teeth news
So maybe you're all wondering how the Livestock Judging went. Well.....here are the results of our team.
Overall in Sheep/(Meat) Goats - 5th place
Overall in Hogs - 6th place
Overall in Cattle - 10th place
Overall in Oral Reasons - 4th place
Overall Team - 6th place
There were around 40 teams at the National Competition. Besides the winning team, we were the only team to place in all of the top 10 categories. We were also the only team to have 2 top 10 individuals. Both of the boys on our team did amazingly well and placed 5th and 6th individually. To say the least, we were amazing, astonished, excited, and overwhelmed.
I would like to thank the Lord for His amazing peace and calm that I felt during the whole contest. I often thought of the movie "Facing the Giants" as I knew that we were competing against teams that were judging in college. I told the Lord that I would praise Him if we won or praise Him if we lost. I thank Him so much for helping us do as well as we did. He receives the glory!
On Friday afternoon Abigail and I made the trek to Detroit so as to get our wisdom teeth pulled. The whole process of getting the teeth pulled wasn't so bad ( we were so all numbed up ) but the 2 hour ride home without meds and coming out of the numbing was awful. Let's just say I'm very glad to be on HIGH doses of vicodin. :D
Anyway, that's been my last week. I'd love to hear how life has been going for all of you!
