Catching Up With Photos

Nathalie's last night at home before leaving for college: a marathon game of Risk

The morning we drove Nat to Bob Jones University.

Our visit to Antietam Battlefield

I love this picture of Sam.



Big E 4-H Showmanship competition

Abby's last time competing as a 4-H'er

Abby's showmanship goat: Raclette. This goat exemplifies everything that can be wrong (conformation-wise) with a dairy goat, and yet in the breed class at this show, the ADGA judge placed her first in her age category. I almost (ALMOST!) offered the judge my glasses. The next day, with a different ADGA judge, she placed dead last, where she should be. 

Now that Abby is no longer in 4-H, Raclette has been sold to a dairy farm in Bloomfield, where she can live out her days having babies and making milk; never to grace a show ring again!
