fair-ly busy

I apologize for the lack of posts lately.

It was fair week last week.

Not just any old fair, but the boys' 4-H county fair. Which involves setting up pens, and preparing exhibits, and getting sheep ready, and hauling almost every animal on the farm there (sheep and chickens and rabbit), and camping near your animals to make sure they are safe, and taking care of your animals, and showing your animals, and breaking down pens, and cleaning everything up... and on and on and on.

It is wonderful and great for kids, who learn all about responsibility and hanging out with your friends and being rewarded for all your hard work through the year.

But for their mom, who sleeps with them in the tent in the field, it is a little hard on the back.
