4H Smallstock Show...Road Trip

Following us home from our weekend road trip both my son and I caught a cold, coughs, aches and pains, and fevers. Not a great way to end a wonderful weekend. But the weekend was much fun, visiting with old friends, meeting new ones. 4H shows, you can feel the family closeness, the kids love for what they do, their excitement, the dedication. No matter who wins, they are all there just having fun with their friends, its wonderful.  The past few years our daughter has been in two animals projects a year, this was the first year she was in four- Cavy, Rabbit, Poultry and Waterfowl.  It was a big jump in the amount of work and knowledge but she held up well through the long day of showmanship and came out with all blue ribbons and Reserve Grand Champion Jr Showman in Cavy and Reserve Grand Champion Jr Showman in Poultry. We are very proud of her hard work!

The best part of the weekend was not the ribbons or medals or winning, it was the friends- kids our daughter hadn't seen in a year even and just like that reconnected because they share this great love of animals and 4H. We are proud to be a part of such a wonderful close knit family organization.
