When The Fair Falls

The kids in front of our Group Display with our 3rd place ribbon
I had the bug as a child - that desperate need to create and craft in hopes that my many toils may yield the few precious dollars of a first place sticker.  And now Zander's caught it.  He worked hard all through August.  Which means I worked hard all through August.  Cutting.  Pasting.  Taping.  Papermache-ing.  Painting.  Sketching.  Whew!  And to top it all off, I was asked to help with the set up and the judging and Zander wanted us to enter the group display as a family.  And we did it all.  And I entered my own stuff.  Again, WHEW!

But it was fun.  And I'm glad it's over.  Between the two of us we made over $130 in prize money!  Zander's beaming.  I'm exhausted.  But it was fun and it was worth it.
