Knolltop Farm Wife

Welcome to my blog! I'm a wife, mother of four and a self-employed freelance writer. I live on a dairy farm with my family and I enjoy sharing our life with family, friends and anyone else who wants to visit the farm. There's no telling what the I will write about from day to day, but hopefully you'll be enriched when you stop by! Have a wonderfully blessed day!

Who me? I'm not tired!

It's been a busy couple of days here in Wisconsin at the National Holstein Convention. As you can see I haven't had time to post anything.

So let me give you the condensed version of the last two days. Sarah's speech went well. She is one of these people who has bad rehearsals and then when the spotlight turns on, she goes to town. She was great! She lost her place a couple of times because she was being so animated, but she looked like she was having a great time. I know she was nervous, but she did well. We will find out just how well she did on Thursday.

Last night they had a Junior mixer and the band Catchpenny played. Since two of the guys in the band were from Indianhead, a Holstein farm in Wisconsin, I decided I would go meet them. So I sat down at the table with the band and started into my reporter interregation mode and found out everything I wanted to know. What I found out is that they are a great group of young men and are very talented.

Today we toured farms all day. Frozene, So-fine Bovine, Maple Lawn and Rosedale. They were all very different and very interesting! Tonight was the convention sale at Heatherstone Farms. A huge group of people showed up for a great meal and an even better offering of cattle. It was great fun!

I've got lots of pictures to share, but that will have to wait until next week when I can download them onto my computer at home.

Now I'm going to drop into bed and repeat to myself, I'm not tired...I'm not tired....I'm not tired!
