Fair week is the only week all year we have to divide and conquer. I live at the fairgrounds day and night with the girls and their steers Tuesday through Sunday. They do all the fair work – cleaning barns and feeding steers and getting ready for the show ring – but I like being here as camp chef and to support the girls and their friends.
But it’s too close to our calving season with lots to do on the ranch so Brian comes back and forth for the girls events (it’s only a 30 min drive). In addition to keeping the ranch and businesses going – he transports the girls’ horses for the big fair rodeo night, washes all the white uniforms, brings us diesel for the generators and supports our camp supply. 😊
I’m not used to doing days without him so it makes me appreciate the other 51 weeks of the year! But this week is all about the girls and the traditions of fair week. 🍀
