Just a quick follow-up to our veggie art story – we went to the fair today and she won! A first place blue ribbon and special honors (they didn’t have enough ribbons so it’s not there but she’ll be getting a big yellow ribbon too!).
The families pulled together a list of all the kids in our home school group who entered items and I was so impressed. So that is who’s been entering all this time! It made the fair even more personal to look work that belonged to our new friends.
When we got to the fine arts building, we learned Katie’s poem also won first place. She’ll be reading it on Saturday – so I will post more about that then – in the meantime, she needs to brush up her public speaking.
All in all, a great day at the fair!
