I know that the 4-H fair was 7 months ago but I thought that you all would like to see how it went and what we did! There are now only four of us in 4-H and next year there will be three! General project judging was 2 weeks before the fair and we had some nights we stayed up late to finish up projects..okay, it was mostly me because I took 14 general projects (and 4 different species of animals!) and waited until last minute to make them! I pulled an all-nighter for making my dress and judging the next day was long! (at least for me)! I was happy to get some sleep between my projects getting judged! πŸ™‚ Charissa and the boys were pretty good about getting their projects done in time!

We all did the fashion revue and enjoyed it! here are some pictures of each of us on awards night modeling for the public.

The first day of the fair all the barns will compete in several games in one barn and it is called “Battle of the Barns”. This year was the first year that we did it and we had a lot of fun!! Everyone will wear the same style of shirt and will be separated by color of shirt to identify what barn you are participating for, and they used the design that I drew/made for the front of the shirts! (I won 3 different t-shirt design contests last year and they used this design– and must have liked it enough to use it again!;) )

Here is the design:

Tuesday July 11th was the llama show:

This is costume class (we had 4 other classes besides this one)Β  and we don’t have a picture of Isaiah and his llama, but he did Hiccup and Toothless form how to train your dragon!

Noah and his llama Annie as a hunter and a deer

Charissa and her llama Annie (also the one Noah showed, just about everyone had a partner that they shared a llama with) as a baker and a cupcake

This year I got to lease a cow and show it (which was my first time) and I really REALLY enjoyed doing it! I definitely would have done it all 10 of my years if I could have! πŸ˜‰ We get to name the cow we show and I named mine Luijzika! (Lu-e-zhe-ka) πŸ™‚ I had a lot of fun working with her at the farm and then the fair!!17

The dairy cow show was Thursday July 13th:

I showed her in her class (I placed 5th…or she did! πŸ˜€ ) and then also in showmanship and placed fourth! (there were 9 of us in that class).

Anna told us that if we did goat showmanship she would buy our tickets to ride the ferris wheel at night and so we all did!

At the llama tent is where we spent most ofΒ  our time (other than the ice cream stand! πŸ˜‰ ) and one of the nights after the llamas went home a few of us brought our ukuleles and gave a little concert!

We four auctioned off milk buckets and meat ducks but I couldn’t find any pictures of it!

 

Friday August 4th was when we went to the Indiana state fair so I could model my dress for judging and that was REALLY fun!
