It is Fair time again and I have spent the last two weekends with our boys showing their 4-H projects.
They are in the beef, dairy and rabbit clubs. Our oldest shows all three, but our youngest son chose to show only his rabbit this year. K is 15 1/2 and J is 13 1/2.
We are very fortunate to have great farmers allow our kids to work with their animals and prepare them for shows, and to transport them and share their time and expertise at the Fairs (we don't live on a farm so the cattle are 'borrowed'.)
K did especially well this past weekend and won quite a few ribbons, including Grand Champion Showperson in the Open Class.
We have had great weather for the Fairs (except for two rainy Fridays and a quick shower the first Saturday), lots of time with friends and way too much Fair food. I plan to pack some nutritious food and snacks for this upcoming weekend. Three more Fairs to go and then a break until the Royal in November. Hopefully I can find some time this week to pull out the Fall decor bin. Do you visit fairs or festivals at this time of year?
