Travel, in the younger sort, is part of education; in the elder, a part of experience.

The littles and I are on a bit of an adventure. We have gone on a road trip to a poultry show out of state. All three of them will be showing off their poultry knowledge at a national competition. The Geek couldn't take time off work, so I am doing this parenting gig solo. My mom thinks I am courageous to trek with the chicklets alone, but I disagree. I have experience at this sort of thing and while crazy might better describe it, I don't think I am all that courageous. I am just a Mama Hen seeking out teachable moments for my kiddos and trips like this are full of 'em!
Here's a look at Boy Wonder when he started showing chickens. He's grown so much as a result of his participation in both 4H and other poultry shows. Too many trophies and ribbons to count line shelves in his bedroom. The Munchkin has quite a few of her own now and the Little Prince is hoping to earn some honors this weekend too.
