Shaggy has participated in two 4-H Rifle Shooting matches during the past two weeks. He placed first in one competition and we will discover the results tomorrow for the second one.
I was one of the people in charge of organizing an annual chicken dinner that has been occurring at the girls' school for more that 60 years! It is a lot of work in one day, but so rewarding to hear stories from people who have attended most of them! I even discovered that the mom of my best friend from 5th grade through high school attended the school! It was a lot of fun catching up with her! The head cook for this dinner has been cooking for more that 50 years himself! We served over 200 people in 3 1/2 hours!
I was able to join Sugar Plum Fairy's class on a field trip to a nearby farm. The kids get to see old farm equipment and go on a wagon ride. They were able to see a barn owl taking a nap in the tree, pump water the old fashioned way and churn butter. Playing with and feeding the goats was a hit with them as well.
