I've made this summer..

their favorite time of year
{i'm not even kidding}
is the county fair.
they show their holstein calves
for both 4H and open class
Chloe (age 10) and Lucy
{she has been showing since she was 2..
i should really find a pic and scan it to add here..}

Caden (Age 9) and Candy
{they took 5th out of 12}

Brody (Age 6) and JellyBean
{he was most excited about the donut he got after showing}

Sofia (Age 4)
{being helped by big sister Chloe}

NEXT... a few of my favorite quotes
from books I've read this summer!

"Often in the search for your destiny you will find yourself obliged to change direction"
 from The Alchemist by Paulo Coehlo

"Everyday God gives us a moment in which it is possible to change everything that makes us unhappy."

-Paulo Coehlo

"I wondered, "Why have I been chasing happiness my whole life
when bliss was here the entire time?"
-Elizabeth Gilbert
{Eat. Pray.Love}

"You don't forget the face of the person
who was your last hope."
from The Hunger Games
by Suzanne Collins

"May the odds be ever in your favor!"
-Suzanne Collins

"Sometimes you have to be a part from people you love,
but that doesn't make you love them any less.
Sometimes you love them more."
from The Last Song by Nicholas Sparks

"When people cared about each other, they always found a way to make it work."
-True Believer by Nicholas Sparks
