All of DD's 4-H projects are complete... signed off, labelled, ready to go ... they are in my van awaiting for us to work check-in tomorrow morning at the fair (8:15am - noon).. Yeah, NOT! It's a complete zoo during check-in so the time will go FAST!!!

I completed the club scrapbook (64 pages) and the banner and the poster board on our country (our fair theme is 4-H Around The World) is in the van ready to go!

Yeah!! Now to see if all the hard work invest in these projects are rewarded the way they should be!!!

Hey! I did that! That was my first thought.. all that hard work..and this would be the day my van got broken into in my driveway!

She has to complete one project a month starting in Sept. IF it is not complete she can't turn it in..and all projects are due by May 1 or NO WDW for her! (mean mommy)

YM: The club chose Australia to do.. gathered facts on the country, did a toy/book drive and sold the books at a resale shop and the proceeds went to a charity in Australia. (They raised 115.00).

Thanks everyone for the well wishes!!! We'll know today how she did..and tomorrow if she got any advance placings and state fair entries...

Lisa: I will make that ribbon this afternoon!!! Thanks for being so thoughtful!!!
Which reminds me.. how are things on your homefront? Off to see if I can find any info before I have to head out to the fair for project check-in (not only are we turning her projects in, the club projects in..but I'm working til noon)

DD got Blue (1st) ribbons in all her events.. 7 projects.
Got HONORS in Create Your Own Thing * our animal ABC book*
Child Development, Collections (postcards), and Home Environment..

We'll find out tomorrow if there are any State Fair entries for sure..but DD didn't think she advanced out of Honors.. She is disappointed but took good notes about who got what, what they did..and how she could improve..
She worked a 12 hour volunteer shift today getting the projects checked in, ribboned, set up.. and than she helped the Mini 4-H project judging. I'm tellin' ya the kid is pretty popular in her group of friends.. it makes a mommy proud! (Oh, and the number of guys who kid with her is amazing! YES, mommy watched and gave the "look" to a few of them!)

I wanted to run the boys off..but I figured it's more fun for her brothers to do that..
She is disappointed because some of them that got Honors she didn't believe deserved them because they didn't follow the rules....but you know..you learn from this...and you go on... I told her she had nothing to be disappointed about that she did a fabulous job...

I think hearing all the rave reports from her DIS Aunties went a long way!! She was smiling as I hollared in the reports!!! :):woohoo: :hug:

Sounds good to me!!!
Actually, she is already planning her projects, estimating costs and has set up how much chores should cost and how much she has to do to fullfil her funds to accomplish her goals! Now, to see if she follows thru!!! :)

We are off to spend the afternoon and have dinner at the fair!!! Lemon shake up here I come!!! Yeah!!!! (and a corn on the cob!!)
Plus I get to find out how the Club Scrapbook did... the banner and the Australia poster we did (Jordan thought she only see one country poster and nothing else exhibited...mission to find out if that is true)...

Have a great day everyone.. so far mine has been pretty good.. even MIL called to butter me up.. (yep, I'm sure she wants something... that ain't gonna happen!)
I'll let you know the final results tomorrow.. We are staying out late tonight..because they are doing a Hot Air Balloon glow at 9:30.. can't wait to see that..and take photos... I think it will make for a cool scrapbook page in the 2007 album that still needs to be started!!!!!!!!!
