4-H is keeping us busy. The girls led the Pledges at the annual Banquet. They are also Honor Members again. Rachel competed in Indoor O'Rama performing "It's a long road to freedom" acapella. She didn't win, but she did a very good job for her first time. Emily went on to District competition in Broiler BBQ and placed 3rd. Also a good job. Next week will be Outdoor O'Rama and both have plans to compete in dairy foods and baked goods.
Last month was our County Broiler BBQ. Both girls competed and Emily took first place! I wish I could have got a photo of her when they announced her name. Those pretty blue eyes were dancing. She was so thrilled that she pulled me in front of her and tried to hide.
It's that time of year again. Our chicks have arrived for this year's 4-H Poultry Chain. Twenty Five one day old fluff balls. This batch seems to be much more aggresive than past years, but they are going to fit into our schedule just fine. It's kinda funny to have birds that want to stay up all night though.
