THE KIDS TAKE OVER #3
Hello once again luscious-gracious blog readers! The parents have been too lazy to blog. Again. We have been in Indiana for six weeks on summer vacation. We visited
Chicago, fairs (where Lily and our cousin Braydon showed pigs, which Lily will talk about shortly), and other things I forget about.
We made cool stuff while at Papa & Mimi's, like these clay groceries for the game we made up.
When dad came to visit, he brought this great skein of Manos from my One Skein Secret Pal. Thanks Secret Pal, I love it!
Well anyway, here’s Lily with the pig-showing report. This summer, when Lucy and I went to Indiana, I showed four pigs in the 4H fair.
My cousin Connor was the "Pig Assistant" while he visited.
I showed 2 gilts (girls) and two barrows (boys). For the gilts I got 4th and 5th place and for my barrows I got 2nd and 7th place. In showmanship I got 3rd place. Then Braydon and I went to the Delaware county fair to show pigs. Braydon showed in pre-4H and got 2nd place and I showed in the open showed in the open show and got 8th place.
In other summer farming news, I helped deliver a calf!
1. Cut up chicken breast
2. Sprinkle chicken over salad mix
3. Add orange slices around salads to make rays for the sun
4. Add nuts and corn
5. Pour on dressing
And now the knitting! I (Lucy) made a super cool doll that will we be named in a contest that you, yes you, could participate in!
The doll was made from the book Knitted Babes by Claire Garland. The dress was made by mom and the hat by dad. She is a cutie, don’t you think so?
So leave me a comment with a name for the doll. I will pick my favorite and give a prize to the winner!
Until the next post, so long.
Lucy and Lily
