The other day my friend Annie told me about an auction that was around the corner from her house. I was so excited! We arrived there right when it started at 10AM and we stayed until the very end around 5:30PM. It was a very long fabulous fun day! There was So. Much. Stuff! It was amazing! Annie and I both realized that this was the first auction for either of us to ever stay for the whole thing.

Last Friday we had our first school tour of this year. In fact we will be busy with a bunch of these in the next few weeks. The milkman always starts off the tour in the milk barn explaining to the group how cows are milked. He even turns a milker on and lets the kids feel what a milker feels like on their finger so they know what a cow is feeling.

OH MY GOODNESS!!! I couldn't believe my eyes yesterday when opened up the Fall 40-page section of The Wichita Eagle. There was a section on the 3rd page about Barn Sales, and in the last couple of paragraphs it talked about ours. I couldn't believe it! I was SO excited!!
I don't know how they found out about us but I'm so glad they did! If you haven't planned to attend yet mark your calendars. Hope to see you all there!

On Monday the milkman, Ky, Quintin (our hard working employee) and I all went the state fair. There was 2 reason we went on Monday, #1 It is the dairy show day and #2 if you have a Dillons grocery store loyalty card then you could get in to the fair for FREE and everyone that knows me knows my favorite word is free! HA!

Last week a new chapter began in Ky's little life. Preschool! She is only going a couple of days a week but she was excited. Well... she was excited at home but, when we arrived at school she was very nervous.
