Recovering from Fair Week

Brought the animals home today - Cody is busy unpacking everything tonight. We are so proud of him for all of the hard work he puts into his animals each year. Chores twice a day - teaching them to lead. Rinsing them and taming them. It paid off - we won Bremer County Born and Raised Champion with our steer McLovin. Our heifer, Ilo, won Reserve Market Heifer. We also placed in the top ten for Rate of Gain. Cody participated in the Showmanship Competition as well and did a great job - he earned free lunch for that! And then, in the Friday night Grand Champion selection, his steer won third overall! What a great way to end the week at fair and a year of hard work! We will start all over again with next year's calves real soon!

Jaima is overtired. She had to take a late nap today - went shopping with her Grandma Austa. We got her up early today so we could take Jaiden to the Cute Baby Contest at the fair. She placed second in her class for "Prettiest Eyes" - we had a lot of fun! We, of course, think she was the cutest baby there!

I will post pictures soon - I am too tired to do all of that right now!
