The girls didn't want to hold them-petting was enough.
At this age (less than a week) they are so soft.
Getting ready for the state fair.
Next Friday granddaughter Amanda will be showing her pig at the MN State Fair. Her last year. Last of an era! Now the other kids in the county will be saying - "So glad the Nilson families are all done!" Our girls and grand kids have done very well at the county fair and state fairs throughout the past years. For me, I'm having the same feelings like I did when the last daughter graduated and was leaving the nest. Makes me teary eyed! After this year, won't have the need to go to the state fair 4-H show; but I bet we may go down to watch other local kids that have bought pigs from us. But it won't be the same for me.
We have had so many good years with our girls and Blake and Amanda. 4-H events, fairs, and open class showes have been our family time to get together. I'm sure daughter Leah and I will both have some good pictures from the state fair to share with you all next week.
Another picture of Odda with her sore nose. She and Hooch have been digging under things, and her big nose is getting scraped and cut. Now is scabby and sore. Not so pretty in pictures until her nose heals up.
I've been so busy this week, mowing between rain showers. Have cut out flannel for a new quilt. Those pictures to come. Tomorrow, Sat. I get to take Odda to town for make up date for testing for CGC (Canine Good Citizen). We were out of town on the original date. I sure hope she passes.
Hope you all have a great weekend. jo
