Abigail's first entry into the fair

Sunday, August 9, 2009





Abigail really wanted to enter the fair with her dad and sister this year. She entered five items. All were cookies. We crossed our fingers that she would get at least one ribbon. We were all pleased to see that not only did she ribbon, but she got on out standing exhibit on cookies. This award was given to only one cookie in the jr class division. The funny thing is she insisted on making oatmeal raisin cookies, but we tried to convince her to make oatmeal chocolate chip like dad was making. She held strong to her decision to make the raisin kind and it paid off well for her.

Here are the five things she entered:
  • Oatmeal cookies (plain) 2nd place
  • Oatmeal raisin 1st place and outstanding exhibit
  • No bake peanut butter balls 2nd place
  • Peanut butter cookies 1st place
  • Chocolate chip cookies 3rd place

She had a great time at the fair. She had her arm painted by a clown and got the see her old kindergarten teacher and share the news of her ribbons with her. She is such a great teacher, that today we received a card for Abigail in the mail congratulating her on the ribbons.

Wow, Abigail too! Congratulations you talented family. Sis. Gatherum's paintins are amazing too. My kids were blown away by them.

What an amazing way to encourage their talents! Maybe next year I will go crazy and get my kids to enter some stuff!
