Speaking of crops, we have had 4" of rain this week..... It is really discouraging seeing your hard work lay under water. :(

We are gearing up for 4-H fair week and all the fun it brings. The kids are very excited about fair week. There is a lot of preparation yet to be done - the projects are getting done one by one, now it is time to practice showmanship with the animals on a more regular basis. This year's fair will be a milestone for us too - it will be the first year that one of our kids will be showing livestock (probably the first of many years of livestock showing for us). I am very excited for fair this year and for all the opportunities it will give our kids. So, if you are looking for a very family friendly event during the last week of July, come up to the Clinton County 4-H and Youth Fair. The fun starts on Monday, July 28th!
