Thanks everyone for your kind comments on Madeline’s photos. I’m happy to report that she got blue ribbons on all of them, and the one of Rafe & Ava got a “Considered for State” ribbon. It didn’t end up getting selected for the State Fair, but was selected as an alternate. So she was happy with that because, wow, they must have had at least a hundred entries in the photography division.
(Though I can’t imagine why they’d ever need an alternate in photography. What would prevent a photograph from “going” to the state fair? I think it was more of an honorable mention.)
Her recipe blog also got “Considered for State”, but didn’t end up being selected.
But her horticulture project, which was a shade/sun perennial flower garden, did get selected for the state fair! So she is very excited to have something going to state this year, the first year she is eligible for that.
Yet to come is Share-the-Fun tomorrow night, and the dog show on Saturday night. And 90-degree weather. I’m so glad we don’t have livestock at the fair this year.
