If you hate when people brag about there kids, just stop right now and go to another post. This post is for ONLY those who truly love my children and care about their awesome accomplishment (i.e. for the grandparents). The kids participated in the local Lee County Fair and in the State Fair with a wide variety projects. At the county fair, Claire one 11 first place ribbons, 2 second place ribbons and 1 3rd place ribbons. My favorite project was her recycled sculpture that she made at the NC Art Museum. Cobey won 5 first place ribbons, 6 second place ribbons and 1 third place ribbon. My favorite project of Cobey’s was his photography projects. I also liked his collection of patches from many of the places that we had been to. He had sorted them into categories.

At the State Fair, Claire got 2 first place ribbons, 7 second place ribbons and 1 third place ribbon. Claire did lots of cooking with honey, scrapbook pages, rubber stamping cards and other projects. She got her two first place ribbons in flower arranging which she did with Grandma. Cobey got 1 Best of Show ribbon,  3 first place ribbon, 2 second place ribbons and 3 third place ribbons. He got the Best of Show ribbon for his digital scrapbook pages of his experience at Camp Arrowhead.  He also got a first place with a game board he wove and with his honey.

They were very proud of all their winnings.  At the county fair, the kids had fun showing off their ribbons to friends and family, eating fair food and riding roads. At the state fair, we told the kids that we were not going to ride any rides and they discovered how much fun all the exhibits were. On the way out they commented about how much fun they had even though they did not get to ride any rides. We are already planning for more fair fun next year.
