My kids never flipped their days and nights, I was so happy about that 😂

Hope the ewes are all bred! I have one I’m not sure about but I don’t know how to draw blood so I guess I wait… when will you have lambs?

There is a pregnancy test for sheep that uses urine. DH ordered some because they're inexpensive but we haven't tried to catch urine yet.

Lambs are due April 1!

I chugged right along with my to-do list. I'm caught up on 4-H stuff. We have a "big" meeting tomorrow evening. Kids are bringing their dogs to show their training progress over the last week. It's the first test of my curriculum. I feel calm and excited. Mistakes will be made, I'm just curious to see WHICH mistakes are made. There are so many ways it could go wrong... :gig

My boss has COVID, so I sure hope she recovers well. She has been sick for weeks already and is down to checking her email once a week - if she can manage that at all. :( I work independently, just check in every few weeks so no biggie for me. I'm pretty solid at halfway done with the chapter and about halfway through the month. I can breathe easier now, but can't slack off.

Dog project meeting was awesome! I had a hunch that asking more of families would cause an increase in participation. That seems to be true for half of the kids. The leader who asked for less and less each year because of lack of participation is blown away. I'm happy, but gosh that was lucky. It was a gamble, we had no idea which way it would go! I just spent 2 hour typing up follow-up emails to all the families who participated to make sure they have information and links to anything we mentioned to help them.
