Kids and I have probably been spending 8-10 hours a week weeding... We've had some green onions but ready for more rewards.

@Thanks Baymule for the kind words. I love my kids and am grateful for the opportunities we've been given. My husband is for the most part supportive and it's a team effort.

Fair overall went well, can't say it was perfect but only one major hickup. Richie had enough on day 2 of the horse show and threw Jocelyn.... Not what you want to see, your 50# girl flying through the air... :barnie But a friend loaned Jocelyn their pony and she finished the day. Sore but she was unhurt. So until she's bigger Richie's show career is done. Needs some work on being herd bound.... hard to do on our current property but we should start doing tying up lessons around the property where they can be "alone" Hard thing when you mostly trail ride.
Kids did really great with 4H, lots of blue and purple ribbons. 3 of Jocelyn's projects are going on to state and 1 of Johns. She did more that would qualify. They are both going to Area for tractor driving. Jocelyn was reserve high point junior and actually beat her brother's score in zero turn. John was the oldest, most experienced junior driver so he was high point. Proud of both.
Have had a couple more people come see Lightning. He'll be for sale until July 28 I think it is, that day I have an appointment with a trainer. She'll evaluate him and we'll discuss his future. Either send him with for training or consignment.
Let's see what else. Softball is ALMOST finished... Jocelyn's team is in the regular season tournament championship tomorrow night.
We're getting a few peas from the garden and the cucumbers are going nuts. Weeding every minute we can. Corn is tasseling. Looks like we'll start harvesting beans and need to harvest a cabbage to make cole slaw.
DH and John are helping/taking with a local group who puts on a Power from the Past show, it starts Wednesday.
VBS for kids and me all week in the mornings.
Summer hasn't felt like a vacation.... but I guess we're staying out of trouble. Looking forward to our lake trip at the end of the month.
