The summer is wrapping up. School is around the corner, getting dark a tad earlier and we are getting those cooler evenings. We are emerging into fall my favorite season. Another way to know that summer is almost over is the fair. It is a time to enter projects and to see friends we haven’t seen in a while. We entered our projects last week.
Henry as a cloverbud he receives a ribbon for every project. Greta did well also. She got all 1st place ribbons besides 2 2nd place ribbons that came from canning. We used brand new Walmart canning jars but she was docked because not name brand. That really upset me but I guess we know for next year now. Must be name brand jars. We left our projects in the judges hands. The next night we were going to be back and we could hardly wait to see how we did.
Of course we had to check our projects. Greta earned a grand champion and a state fair trip. Very proud of her. Henry loved seeing his projects on display. When we went to open class I was very happy with what I saw also.
Sunday night back to the fair and had some family fun. Food, fun and checking out the animals and music.
Now the fair is done. The birthdays are done, and the family reunions. I must focus my attention on back to school and also subbing a day or two a week. It makes me think what we didn’t do this summer. We didn’t camp, or fish but we have time. We have the beautiful season of fall.
