After this...I'll be done with my 4-H tales.
This is dedicated to CJ -- she keeps asking & a big Happy Birthday to her (& me) today!
The kids did great, they got blue ribbons on most everything, plus some larger awards for certain projects. Especially Shadowman, he really cleaned up, but his lego creation didn't do so well -- he's already drafting plans for next year.
Went to the Style Revue; Lizzie did great. She didn't place. I didn't understand the judging. I think all of the girls could use some feedback. (Maybe if she would have opened her eyes that would have helped, just kidding. She'll kill me for putting this in here, but it's all I have.)
It was 107 degrees. I was busy keeping track of Harry (3) and my dad. Tried to keep Dad from "whispering" his colorful comments too loudy. He always has interesting insights into events such as this. Insights I'd prefer no one else hears.
Here is the winner in the senior division. Her dress was amazing. There was even a train on the back. Very pretty. Not a great picture, sorry.
Yes, it was worth it. It's a learning experience -- the kids work so hard, and then they go to fair & see that everyone else worked really hard too. I like that.
