Weekly post: 6/3-6/10

Oh hey! I was late this week. My bad!

I really don't have a lot of different assignments to post but I have a lot to post from a few assignments.

Ya'll the fair was just in town. I haven't had a fair in forever. I love it. So many community features are to be shoot at the fair. Not to mention that we had mutton busting- which for those who don't know, that is small children riding a sheep like a bull. It was amazing. I've wanted to cover mutton busting forever.

Also the Distinguished Young Women program happened. This is a scholarship program. It is interesting. I've never one to be a pageant person. But when I hear the stories from the winners that this is a tradition for them to be in because their sisters, mothers and grandmothers have done it. That small town tradition I like and respect.

In this edition of 'What did Kaitlin shoot last week':
• Rodeo
• Distinguished Young Women
• Fair fun

You can read more about the adorable event here

Toddlers and teens found their inner peace last week when free yoga classes were hosted at the Taylor County Extension Office. Clancy Leonard of Chicago offered four sessions of classes, and about 25 children took part. Leonard focused on teaching different yoga postures, along with basic breathing and stretching techniques. She also incorporated music and crafts into her class. “I just want to the spread the word about yoga, that it means union and it’s about posture and physical energy, being able to bring balance with spirituality,” she said.
