The very words put fear and trembling into the hearts of 4H moms.
It’s marked in red on my calendar.
This year we have all five children in 4H. That means a grand total of 19 projects and all of those projects are due at the same time on the same day.
In a perfect world my diligent children would have been working on projects all year – on their own – with little assistance.
My world isn’t perfect.
We worked on projects the week before the fair like our lives depended on it. (For some of my children – it did!)
Despite the stress and the rush, each child was completed on time even if we did had to use duct tape. 🙂
Judging went very well. Very, very well.
Six projects were chosen for the State Fair.
One was an Outstanding Junior exhibit.
And all the rest were blue ribbons – except Buddy’s – he still a Clover Kid and only gets a rainbow participation ribbon.
And now it’s over for another year.
We’ll take a couple of days to rest up and savor the moment.
Maybe by then I will have all my brain cells back…
