County Fair

We all entered items in the county fair this year.

Here we are with the ribbons we won.

Coleen was especially thrilled that she won both first and second place and is proudly displaying her ribbons in her room.
William and I will put ours in our workspaces to remind us to always work towards the best we can do.

I think county fairs are great. It is one of the few chances any more that people get to show off their talents without the pressure of trying to sell it. There were some beautiful items entered. I only wish that there were more people participating. It seemed, at least here, that most of the entries were put in by people over 60 or by kids working on their 4-H projects. How do you create interest for younger adults to participate?
