I went to the fair somewhat bummed because my dairy goat Kimber didn't end up being pregnant and freshening, so I assumed she wouldn't do well. I even debated whether to bring her. But she shocked us all with being Grand Champion for her Nigerian class. Then she took Reserved Champion over all the other Champion dairy goats, and she didn't even have an udder!
The judge was very impressed with her. I can't wait until next year!
My boer goats did well also. Bebe got auctioned and took 3rd out of 27. Pollyanna and AnnaMae got a special award that this was the first year it was given. I ended up selling the two does to make room for a new Nigerian. I will miss them. Enjoy Bethany! I just pray that the Lord provides me with the perfect goat!
I also really enjoyed hanging with all my good friends. Thanks Gracie for all your help! You are an awesome person!

I finally found a job! I got a job as a dining aide at the Dallas Retirement Village. I will go in on Thursday and they will write a job offer up for me. I'm really excited that the Lord provided this job for me, I think I will really enjoy it. Its a major relief to have a job to pay for my animals. I really appreciate all the Lord is doing in my life.
