the kids are alright

Funny name for a post - but it was all about the kids today

everywhere I went, the kids were the experts

totally in control

or just totally in love

and always good natured


and these kids were alright too:

(competing cavies)

I could write a dissertation on that second photo of the calf and the little boy. The first thing I noticed was he was standing in a layer of straw and dirt, while wearing the whitest white I'd ever seen, along with shiny black boots. In scanning the photo, I noticed all the children planning to show animals were in white from head to toe, too. Must be some requirement.

But the funniest thing (and I definitely mean ironic) in this picture was the woman with her arms akimbo in a red sweat shirt in the back left. I was reminded that as she was obviously trying to stay warm, I was on my way across town and nearly had a heat stroke before I got there. Oh for your weather!

They say a photo is worth 1000 words, and I think I just used them all on this one "blue ribbon" photo.

In answer to Elizabeth's comment: the boy dressed in all white head to toe is showing his heifer calf in the Dairy division. It's interesting because for Dairy, the kids are all in white (which is astonishing that they can STAY white). But for the Beef division, the kids are in western wear. They are SUCH cute kids though - so serious and well mannered - they work SO hard!
