This blog might just disappear overnight – my host/server will not contact me so I’m going to post as many short posts as I can – while I can.
The Fair – I’m just full of “good” news this morning. Reed’s quilt was awarded a blue quilt but it is NOT going to the State Fair!!!!! I simply could not/still cannot believe it. There were little paper entries that maybe took one hour to make and yes, they’re going to the State Fair. A photograph in a plastic sleeve is going to the State Fair yet Reed’s quilt that he worked on for over 6 months did not qualify! Can you hear the disappointment in my voice? I don’t know who the judge was nor do I know if she made any comments. I’m hoping to follow up on this but the good news is that the day the fair closed Reed, Myra and Nolan flew with their grandparents, Ed and Cheryl, to their condo in Florida. I got a picture of the three kids parasailing! I’ll bet they’re having such a good time – maybe the sting of not going to the State Fair has faded. It hasn’t faded for me but along with a horrible month of July, this was just one more disappointment.
