Tuesday night I had to work at the big kid Super Farmer contest and it was again a VERY hot night! But the kids had fun and Bg even got in on some action.
Wednesday I started a two day Hedging and Options Training. Sounds kind of boring, but it was an excellent class and I think I learned something!
Thursday night, on behalf of the Chamber, I help with our Farmers Appreciation Dinner. This dinner is awesome. With a very SMALL budget, we feed anywhere from 400-600 people hamburgers, hotdogs, beans and chips as a thank you for all our local farmers. In addition to being on the committee that puts on this event, my work provides and serves watermelon. Since I have a HUGE aversion to watermelon, I put my kids to work in my place.
After the dinner was the auction and awards. Since I was busy bidding and buying animals, my kids were left to roam (such a great benefit of our small town). Bg got a little dirty...the bathtub was pretty nasty when she got out!
And our hay has finally been cut- hooray!!
