Beyond the Job

Last week was the local county 4-H fair.  To most people, the 4-H fair is a fun filled,family time of   4-H, animals, rides and games.  As a 4-H youth educator, the 4-H fair is part of my job responsibilities.  This means very long hours away from my kids and husband and dealing with complaints.  And this year is it was lots of complaints.

Now, to try and forget how truly mean people can be about competition, I am trying to remember the most important part of my life is beyond the job with my kids, my husband and my awesome friends and co-workers.  Oh, and maybe I can get my new hydrangea bush to survive the drought.

Goin' Hog Wild

For 4th of July, we beat the heat at the National Junior Swine Show Spectacular in Louisville.  Our daughter has been showing pigs for a few years with her older cousins, aunt and uncle, who are great with her.

Rosalind and her pig, Lucy, got tenth place in their class.  And big smiles were had by all as we watched them have a great time together.
