Prepping for the 4-H Fair

If it wasn't for the last minute, nothing would ever get done.

The last couple of weeks have been crazy at my house. The county fair is next week and the kids signed up for about for a zillion, give or take a million, craft projects to enter in the 4-H part of the fair.

If I were a good homeschooling mother, I would have planned ahead and had the children spread out their projects over the school year. Instead, we're getting them all done at the last minute.

We've made tie-dye shirts, painted shirts, beady bugs, stepping stones, fleece blankets, and so much more. We had to forgo metal punching and glass etching due to lack of time. Everything has to be turned in for judging tonight and tomorrow, except for creative writing which was turned in two weeks ago.

Teen daughter is in the kitchen right now making her cake to enter. Then she still needs to finish her quilt. I'm praying that her guardian angels help guide her needle so it's done in time.
