It's gearing up to be a busy weekend!
Abby comes home from camp tonight. I can't wait to hear all about it! Rachel and Samantha are eager for her to return to her chores! While we missed her around here, it was good to see Hannah and Samantha take up the slack. It was a reminder for all of us that in a year Abby will be preparing to go off to college!
The horse will go to her new home this weekend. She is going to a great place where she will live out the rest of her years in luxury.
This weekend is also the North Stonington Fair. I am still getting last minute entries for the goat show, and we are up to 90 goats! The weather looks promising for a sunny and hot day. I think we are all up for it. We will be doing last minute clipping tomorrow since Abby took ALL the clippers with her to camp this week!
Last year we tried something new at the goat show that everyone enjoyed, so we are doing it again. We called it "the community table". We provide the cups, napkins, gallons of cold lemonade, chips, veggies and dips. All the showman (and attached parents) are invite to partake. This allows for us to run the show continuously, without breaking for lunch. With the numbers of goats and the show starting at 9AM, we still won't finish up until around 4PM!
