Nebraska State Fair - Part I

The computer has not been working very well.  It was running very slow!!!  Therefore, we were without a computer for about a week while it was getting fixed.  As a consequence, I was not able to post any happenings at this household.

 During the Labor Day weekend, we took the kids to the Nebraska State Fair.  We have not attended the State Fair for a few years.  The State Fair used to be held in Lincoln, but a few years ago the fair was moved to Grand Island.  Both Cara and Erica had 4-H items that qualified to be exhibited at the State Fair and they wanted to see how they placed.
 Grandma Korth won best in county at the Pierce County Fair on this cross-stitch picture and she sent it to the fair as an entry against all the other best in county exhibits.  She didn't win a prize, but she still got to exhibit in the best in county contest.
 Cara received three blue ribbons at the State Fair.  She received blue ribbons on her snack recipe box, perennial flowers (hydrangeas), and her chemistry dyed t-shirt.
Erica received a purple ribbon on her Kool-Aid dyed silk scarf.  This photo does not do this silk scarf justice, it is beautiful in person.

Take care,
