Can you say B.U.S.Y.?

So, we just have a little bit going on right now.  I hope you can sense my sarcasm.  We are smack dab in the middle of harvest.  All grapes are on the ground and now some are starting the drying process and some are getting close to the end, so we still have a ways to go.  Our county fair is fast approaching, which means we are even more busy in the evenings making the rounds to make sure all the sheep are on track to be shown in 3 weeks from yesterday.  

This is where the grapes are right now.  Almost there at our home place, they will roll the trays early next week and box them up later in the week...if all goes as planned.

Just a little different than what they looked like here.

We are the sheep showmanship instructors at the local high school.  We love it, especially when we get a group of kids like we have this year.  They want to learn, they pay attention, and they apply what we teach them.  90% of the time...they are still teenagers :)  They have a "mini-fair" tomorrow, which is a little show put on by the Ag-Boosters to help the kids be prepared for the real fair in a couple of weeks.  So, in order to get them ready for the mini-fair this is what we were helping them with till 9:00 last night.

Jealous much? :)  We were exhausted and sore from all the bending over, but it's what we do.  We enjoy it...mostly.  We are with these kids twice a week until fair starts in 3 weeks, then we will be living at the fair for a few days.  

Hope you all are enjoying the beginning of fall.  97 degrees does not seem like fall to me, tho.  

What's the weather like where you are?
