Tomorrow afternoon (after we go to the doctor to get shots) Tia and I will be heading over to the county fair! We have to spend two nights there for 4H. We show cows. Did I ever mention that before? I must have. To be more specific Tia shows cows. I used to, but I stopped showing so I could focus on helping all the other kids. My Uncle Jay's family owns the farm, my Aunt Jen is the 4H leader, and my family makes up a large part of the 4H group. I felt bad seeing my aunt so stressed over trying to get all the kids ready for the shows. I'm still an active 4H member, though. I love being a part of it. It's been such an important aspect of my life. My summers have been filled with days of helping at the farm, walking my cow, and being at fairs in the show ring. I miss showing a little bit. Especially when I look up and see all the ribbons I've won.
Anyway- tomorrow night and Wednesday night we will be at the fair. I will have no Internet access since there is no way I'd bring my computer there! It'll be a ton of fun, even with the humid and hot weather. That's better than rain, though. Especially since we have to sleep in stalls on hay, or cots if we have them. Being there also means volunteering to help in the 4H kitchen for a few hours. Needless to say I love doing that as well!
This post is jumping around a lot, isn't it? Oh well. I want to share with you one more of my favorite things, as it ties in with the post so perfectly. Do you like pudding? How about all natural, kosher, gluten free pudding made with milk from certified humane cows? If so you should really, really, really check out this website. That is where I get my pudding. Well, I get it from the farm itself. Echo Farm is the farm my uncle's family owns. I practically grew up there! It's probably my favorite place in the whole world.
