State Fair Bound!


I am SO proud of our daughter Victoria (aged 12)! Yesterday she was despondent because she only won one blue ribbon out of 3 photographs she submitted to our local 4H fair. Last year's judge was very lenient and handed out blue ribbons to most everyone. This year's judges were very critical (in the most positive way) and handed out more red ribbons than blue. So the victory was so much sweeter when we learned today that her day lily photo (blue ribbon) also won a purple rosette and will be going to the Missouri State Fair! So if you happen to be in Sedalia, MO the third (fourth?) week of August, stop by the Fair!
