August is fair time at our house. For the past 10 years now, Troy and his brother have had a booth in 4 different county fairs.
One county fair is fun, but add on 3 more- not so much. Then several years back we discovered Open Class and that added to the craziness that is fair time for us.
Ok, in all honesty we do enjoy the finished product of entering things in the fair- the ribbons, the money and just walking around and seeing our stuff displayed, but it is a lot of work getting ready for it. This year, we scaled way back on our entries, which helped some.
We still managed to bring home a few ribbons- sorry I was too lazy to remove the entry tickets
Our prize earnings are as follows: Me: $54, Jameson: $51, Connor:$28 & Genna $21
Here are some of our entries this year
Thanks to Grandpa & Grandma Koski and Cheryl for their help with fair stuff this year!
This year I have to take rides off the fun at the fair list. While there are a couple of classics that are still enjoyable, each one of my kids managed to get sick. Note to self for next year- don't buy the wrist bands.
The parade is always a fun part of the parade and it was even better this year because we got watch Jameson march for the first time.
The fair is always the week before school starts and by then we are ready to get back into a regular schedule. That's where we are now. But give us a few weeks and we'll start planning for next year's fair.
