State Fair Fun
We went to the Oregon State Fair to watch some of my 4-Hers compete in Dog Showmanship. Grandma W decided to hop into Papa's big ole' truck with us and we had a fabulous day together. Some of the highlights (besides my awesome 4-Hers)...
The kids contribution to a public art display in the 4-H building:
There was a table set up in the middle of the building that had some basic art supplies laid out, along with instructions to make a piece of art with the theme "how to change the world". Then the kids could attach it to a nearby mesh screen for public display.
Lil' Mermaid attaching her artwork (it said "make it colorful" - that's my girl!:
Hot Rod's says "treat dogs well":
Peelu plopped right down in the middle of the floor to make SEVERAL:
Her sister helped her write her "change the world" sentiment - it says "make art everybody!":
Pretty cool stuff. I wish I could have seen the display at the end of Fair. I bet it had some wonderful stuff on it.
Wife to a VERY understanding man (even if he does roll his eyes and duck back into his garage way too much); mother to three maniacs,crafter, professional volunteer, crazed maniac in her own right...yep, that about covers it for now.
It's about crafts, family, gardening, life....really whatever the heck I want to talk about. I am wordy, messy, opinionated, disorganized, lacking in focus, manic, craft obsessed...and pretty much this all spills out on the pages of this blog. You've been warned!
