As soon as we returned from Northern Illinois, it was time to pack up the crew to head to the other side of our state! The 4h State Livestock competition was being held in Knoxville, so we all got to enjoy a little bit of Eastern Tn. While the kids competed, the littles and I headed out for an adventure. We found a creek and explored it, we visited a free community splash pad, and skipped rocks on sinking creek. Mia and Katie’s team came in third place. They were disappointed, but I’m proud of all their hard work. Katie was honored to receive first place in reasons, first in beef, and 4th overall individual. That means she can judge cattle really well, and explain why she placed them in that specific order. It was Tommy’s team first year competing at state. They didn’t place very well, but they learned a lot and are looking forward to coming back as a more competitive team next year.
