So, that was Easter… a long weekend at the end of the Queensland School holidays, which was chocolate-filled and action-packed.
Is there any other way to be?
Among our activities of choice was attending a local show (some 100km from home). It’s a one-day agricultural show(case) including many horses, cattle, dogs and much food.
The cute factor was pretty high too…
Especially with giant lollipops in hand…
Our two were up for some more ‘serious’ action – Junior Cattle Judging .
The patience of the handlers and cattle is pretty noteworthy – there were a LOT of kids wandering around making notes (often at almost point-blank range). These heifers were fabulously quiet.
Violet, flash belt and buckle on show, does her thing too.
It’s nerve-wracking for the kids, but fantastic public-speaking experience. We were so proud of both of ours, and noticed a huge improvement since last years’ judging events.

We have two more shows coming up in the next two weekends too…
