Wonderful family weekend...

Postby Fire Sweep Ranch » Sat Apr 05, 2014 8:22 pm

We are currently at a Stock Show University event in Sedalia, MO. I just have to say how wonderful this thing has been for my two younger kids! My oldest goes off to college this summer, so time for the 12 and 9 year old to learn to clip and the finner arts of getting cattle ready for a show. They do a fantastic job of working with the kids one on one... And making them feel special. I am so glad we made the almost 3 hour drive to get here, and look forward to more learning tomorrow!
If you ever get a chance to go, do it! Free education at its best!

We attended one 3 years ago and I agree. The kids don't even realize how much they are learning until they get back home and put it into practice. Glad yall are having fun. Nothing can replace the time spent with your kids.

FSR, you are doing a very special thing. I know how well your oldest has done, you are the catalyst. You are a GREAT mother!

Ahh, thanks Ron! I knew there was a reason I liked you! ;-)

It was a fun weekend, and hearing the kids talk about all they learned was just awesome...
