Fair Update

Well I can say Tina did pretty good! She received blue ribbons for her apron she sewed and one of her ceramic pieces. Her other three ceramic pieces received red ribbons and her terrarium received a white ribbon. Guess she wont be the gardener of the family! But I am very proud of her for what she did.

We spent two days at the fair, riding rides, playing games,eating junk and just walking around! Im glad it only comes once a year because I dont know if I could do it more then that!

Fair Time

One of the signs that summer is definitely gone! But one of my favorite fall activities. I love looking at the exhibits and the animals. Tina put in several things this year for 4-H. Its fun to look at all the things the kids come up with. I cant wait to takes tons of pictures of animals, happy kids on rides and messy faces! A little sad that I cant spend alot of time there this year. With all the bad weather we have had, they took away the kids day off for fair day. But we will just make most of the time we have!

First Days of School

They went pretty well. I was kind of worried about Eric since he was going to high school where not most of his friends are.He started 9th grade. But he seems to like it so far. He was put in JROTC for one of his classes and I'm kind of excited about it. He gets fitted for his uniform next week. And then he gets to march in the Homecoming parade and the Veterans Day Parade.
Tina was pretty excited about her classes.She started 7th grade. She is going to do SGA and Relay for Life for after school activities. Hopefully this year she has a good year and doesn't get a case of the lazy but syndrome. I would love to see her make honor roll all year and not slack off. We shall see!

Sara started her kindergarten journey in a new school as well. But she did great. She came home and told me all about her class and her friends. The bus riding was a new experience as well. I pray that she stays excited about it!
