Hippology and Fields

Well, today was the state hippology competition. It was a long day, but a good day. I took down 6 kids and they had a blast. They had a water fight, were pushing each other out of chairs and just in general having a good time. It was actually really funny, and no one got hurt. Annie fell over in her chair and then J fell in his chair and after that it became a game. I have no idea why J fell though, he just fell backward! AND J got 4th in the top 10. Its a team competition, but they give awards to the top 10 individuals. Our junior team (J's team) got 6th overall! Very exciting. This is the first year we had our name called at all! I think our senior team did good, but just didn't make the top 10. Either way I am proud of all of them.

This happens to be my favorite time of year. I love to see the fields when they are freshly planted and I absolutely love when the corn/beans is just starting to come up and you can see the sprouts in their individual rows.

T umped a game tonight, and this morning him and Rich went golfing since we were in Columbus. They had a good time, and are planning on going back in 2 weeks (Rich's normal day off).
I started reading Twilight by Stephanie Meyer. Everyone says its the next Harry Potter and so far its really good! I am only on about the 3rd chapter, but I am liking it already. I always hate it when people say a book is absolutely fabulous and then I don't like it!

All in all it was a really good weekend and now I think I am going to sew for a while, maybe read and then head off to bed.
Ok, well blogger is not letting me add any pictures tonight for some reason so I will post them all tomorrow!

Sounds like you had a very busy but fun day with the kids. Blogger would only let me load 2 out of 5 photos tonight.
