It is time for the fair! Around here we have been excited for a couple of weeks as we were getting projects ready to enter. Sarah, Ben and Rebekah all had things they entered. Sarah is an amateur photographer and had three pictures to enter. Ben made a can cozy out of duct tape. Rebekah had embroidered a picture, which we made into a pillow.
Then the best part of all. On Saturday, we went to the fair to see how their entries fared.
What great excitement when we found out two of Sarah’s pictures had ribbons: a second and a fourth.
Ben’s can cozy with magnetic holder received an honorable mention.
Rebekah’s embroidered pillow had a third place ribbon.
And the fun didn’t stop there. We were able to watch a demonstration on “How to Give a Chicken a Bath”, participate in the kid’s Tractor Pull, and milk a cow. All great fun for kids that have never lived near a farm.
Even Matthew found something he enjoyed, The Navy Seal Challenge. Well, he enjoyed it all the way to the “I worked out too hard in 100 degree weather and got sick” part. But once everything was out of his stomach he was just fine, and proud of how well he did. Navy recruiters will soon be ringing our house.
All in all, we had a great day at the fair!
