Summer is flying by!

So many things have been going on lately.  I truly believe my head is spinning.

 Our county fair is over.  It was tons of fun.  Our babes did well with their projects.  Little Man had Blue ribbons in photography and safe shooters. Then 2nd and Reserve Champion Simmental Heifer.  Little Miss had Blue in photography and 1st and Champion Simmental Heifer.  The funny part was they were the only 2 Simmental heifers.  But Little Miss is super excited that she now had a trophy just like her brother.

Mr. M is working 7 days a week now. So there are lots of early mornings and late days.  The heat has been awful. We have been under a burn ban lately.   We have also been trying to keep the waters fresh. All of the grass is quickly dieing off.  We have started supplementing with hay which isn't good come winter.  The heat is also messing with the breeding.  So we leased a bull to clean up.

Now that county fair is over we are keeping the show calves going for our State Fair is which is the first part of August.  Which is when we will be registering for school also.  I can't believe that they kids will be going back to school so soon.

We are weaning the last of the calves.  And going to be starting the sale calves for the family sale in September.  And somewhere in there we are going to put the last of the fence in.  Which will be nice for us and the cattle.

It's crazy busy, but I wouldn't know any other way.  I'm hoping that I can talk Mr. M into going away in December for a family trip.  BUT we will see.  I have several photos and posts that I want to share.  But I truly have been enjoying just hanging with my little people.  I hope you all understand.  I love all of your posts and pictures.  Take Care!
