I Could Have Invented This

Ok, congestion has set in.....and this picture is actually what I could wear! I am using the sinus flush....it isn't as bad as it sounds. I get one child well and then I get something.....is this going to be our life now? I know it could be much worse and I'm thanking God for the blessing. Carly's strep is now much better...thank you to those who prayed for her.

Altered White Board

I altered our white board so we can hang it in the dining room and use it for school purposes if needed. It only took some neat scrapbook paper and modge podge. I set the board on a 5 gallon bucket on the counter while working on it so it wouldn't stick to anything. My family had better watch out because I'm on the prowl for something else to alter.....hmmmm, I wonder if I can do my teens' attitudes......evil laugh.......

Quick Update

I'm posting a quick update. For those that know us well, know that we are up to our necks in stockshows. Let's see, we've finished our local show and are finishing up our regional show and getting ready to head off to our state show. My house looks like a disaster area and I haven't cooked a meal in over a week! The good news is that I know it will still be here when we are finished and I can tackle the mess. I have been using my Little Roomba like crazy to keep down on the dust on the floor. I just have to remember to shut doors or he dies before he can finish an area.

We did quite well at the local show. Carly had reserve grand heifer and steer and both were in the premium sale. Sydni had grand champion heifer and finally gets to put her name on the trophy. Regan had grand and reserve champion goat.

Also, Carly got outstanding senior! She was so worried that they wouldn't give it to a 4-H member since it is a memorial award for an FFA member. It really meant a lot to her as she remembers Crystal Hughes well and she impacted Carly's life in her short time on earth.

My parents were given a special recognition award for all their years of supporting the stockshow. Mom and Paul, if you reading this, I can't express in words how much your support, time and money have blessed our family. I love you!

Carly and Regan have made the sale at the regional. I was really worried that Carly wouldn't make it this year.....she has been blessed by making the regional sale every year she has been in the show. We are hoping that she can finally make it at the state level this year.....keep praying...this is her last chance.

Ok, I've rambled when I should be cleaning and getting the local show stuff wrapped up.....have a blessed day and Don't FORGET to SPRING FORWARD tonight so you won't be late to church tomorrow!!!

Want to
