4H Fair Week: Day 6

Today was the last day of the fair…the day of the 4H auction.  The picture above is of all of the kids lining up to sell their ‘chickens’…or rather their goodie baskets (since they couldn’t actually sell the chickens this year due to the avian flu quarantine).

 

The also sell ‘milk baskets’ for the goat project.  We used to sell goat wethers, but it is pretty hard for us to get a wether up to the weight minimum, and baskets, or buckets in our case, are more fun!

Our friend, Asha from India, is visiting for the weekend!  So she got a full fair experience 🙂  We hung out in the goat barn while waiting until the girls were ready to sell.

Cassia slept in the goat barn last night with a friend…and the two of them did not sleep much at all 😀  So Cassia was tired, even after having a cup of coffee!

Our milkshake count right now is 110!

The girls have to go to the fair to help take down and load up the llama gates, so the count may go up 🙂  The Leesburg Dairy Bar (the ice cream stand we get all of our milkshakes from) bought one of the girl’s goat buckets, so that more than made up for what we spent there 😉

 

We are so thankful for all of the people and businesses who come together to buy the animals and buckets and encourage these 4Hers!  Thank you Kosciusko!

 

And thank you to all of you wonderful blog readers for following our fair adventures!  It’s been fun writing them for you, and fun to read your comments both here and on Facebook 🙂 🙂

    I just found your blog and Etsy store. What a fun place to look around. 🙂 I loved your dress a month idea. How fun that would be for a little girl.

      Hey Cassia!
      Very nice to “meet” you as well! 🙂
      When we were much younger and had babysitters, 🙂 one of the girls who watched us was named Cassia…so that’s where my parents got the idea. How about you?
      She’s the only one I know in “real” life..I’ve ran across several over the years, one of them being a cello player I think in Russia, that was kind of cool because I also play cello. 🙂

    the only Cassia that I’ve met is a missionary. My parents named me it because they liked the name. I like it…makes us unique 🙂
