At the Fair

This weekend we enjoyed the Kiowa County Fair, and it got me reminiscing about my youth. I found this picture of my bother, sisters and I at the Sand & Sage fair in 1984! We were quite the crew. I am 5 years old in this photo, my sister Hannah is 4, my brother Dusty just turned 3 and my youngest sister Abby is 1. We attended the fair every year and when we got old enough we joined 4-H and each of us showed 2 sheep each! My mom must of been crazy, because not only was she raising all 4 of us kids on her own (my dad drowned when I was only 5) she also had 8 sheep to worry about each year. Sheep take quite a lot of work have to not only feed and water them every day, you have keep them sheared and take them on walks each day! When the fair would roll around I always thought I was ready to be done with all of the chores they involved, yet after I showed them and sold them, I would sit in their pen and cry. Oh goodness...that was so long ago and what wonderful memories I still hold from all of the fairs I attended!

IT'S A BOY!! :0

My nephew Evan is now a big brother! I just got the call from my sister had a boy! Rowan Avery is his name and he weighed 8 pounds 14.5 ounces. I've been waiting for the news this morning...and now I need to go get in the shower and run to the school to tell my daughter. I was instructed to let her know right when I found out. I think she might be a little she was hoping for a girl cousin. It is funny...through out my sister's pregnancy I was thinking she would have a girl, but today I could only think that it would be a boy! We are going to Denver to meet him tonight...I can hardly wait! :) I will try to post pictures soon.
