Sky Full of Bacon

4-H Season Begins

Last year I shot a couple of quick videos about my son’s involvement in 4-H at Wagner Farm in Glenview.  I probably should have done a full-fledged Sky Full of Bacon about it, but this is one of those cases where being a parent and being a filmmaker just proved too much to do well at the same time.  (It was definitely good practice for the podcasts, though— I learned how sensitive the mic is to picking up my breathing, making me sound like an asthmatic running a marathon through much of this!)  Anyway, here are the two videos from last year, showing him exercising and feeding his lamb, and then the day of the auction at the Lake County Fair.

He has a new lamb this year, a bigger one, named Arachnophobia.  He’s an old hand now, it was fun watching him last week helping wrestle them into the pen, as if every 10-year-old knows how to handle a herd of sheep.
