A Season for Everything!

I'm trying real hard to encourage our family that the rain and mud really only lasts for a season . . .
 EVEN in Western Washington!
 The sun will come out again,
and the ground will dry out!!  It does can happen!
In all our ten years of living here,
I don't think we've seen anything quite like this though!!! 
Saturday was the second day of Timmy's tournament.  It had been postponed from last Sunday to this Saturday, due to rain.
So, I guess they were determined to play no matter what the conditions!
It rained ALL day, for all 3 of his games, and this picture was taken at around 7pm!!
They lost their final game,
but they were happy to take 2nd in the tournament!
I love Timmy's big smile as he receives his medal, and shakes the coach's hand!

The camaraderie among the team's families sitting out all day in the rain has been great!
It's been nice to get acquainted with some other Mossryrock families!

 This weekend was also the annual Spring Youth Fair!
The kids have loved this event for years!
They enjoy showing animals (they started with sheep),
and creating lots of fun projects to turn in for judging and for prizes! 
Benjamin decided that this event called for his "cowboy" attire. 
He accessorized his outfit all by himself!
Not sure if he is guarding or hunting his sisters' goats! ;-)

 Looks like Victoria and Dandi are having a little chat before the show begins!
First show on Saturday is for "showmanship."
The kids are judged on three things;
how well they prepared the goat for showing,
how well they show the goat,
and how much they know about their breed of goat. 

I included this picture because of Valerie's smiling face in the background. ;-)
I think she thought I might be taking a picture of Brielle lovin' on he little boy that was sitting next to her!

 They are always glad to have that part of the show over with!!!
 The following pictures are from Sunday,
when the goats themselves were getting judged.

 Benjamin has taking a liking to this goat (or maybe the other way around ;-),
and he is interested in learning how to show them now.
Maybe he will be Victoria and Caroline's up-and-coming showman?
 Timmy and Joe always enjoy the tractor pulls.
They sure have strong, country-boy legs for the competition!!!

and a season for every activity under heaven . . ."
