County Fair Projects

For her 2nd year in 4H, Caroline displayed a table setting. The fair theme was Faradise, so she went with a Hawaiian meal. It was her first time to try this and she is already planning next year's place setting!

She also submitted arts & crafts and drawing, sketching, paintings to be judged. She received champion in her age class for her acrylic owl painting!

Caroline's last project was market goat. She made a pet out of Frappy, leading and petting her.

Riley also had market goats; 
two to feed, water, move to new pasture, trim hooves, clip hair, and train to lead. 

His second project was photography. Unfortunately his many phone pictures had been filtered, so without the enhancements and with them blown up to 8x10 size, they turned out a little grainy. He still received a top blue on one picture!

Miss Annie baked amazing goodies to be judged, but I failed to snap any photos of her end product. She entered 3 kinds of cookies, cinnamon toast muffins, chocolate bread, chicken Alfredo, and an anniversary gift basket. Her chocolate rolls received a top blue and were second to the overall yeast bread champion who sold her mocha cinnamon rolls for $800 at the food auction!

Annie also planted flower seeds inside and in our garden to take to the fair. She made a couple of arrangements as well. She received blue ribbons on the large zinnia, sunflower, Indian wildflower, and her fresh flower bouquet.

Her pictures taken in Colorado, South Carolina, and at home turned out well too!

The three littles pedaled hard in the tractor pull, a first time for them all.
