My most proud moment was her telling me about the grinding songs protest. The kids her age like to grind when they dance. Grinding is like "dirty dancing." She said a huge group of students sat down on the floor to "protest" the lack of grinding music. They were telling Kayla and her group of friends to sit down. Kayla in all her frankness (she gets from her dad) tells that, she came to dance and not sit on the floor. I love this girl! She is a good example of her standards, I'm glad she can be like this, I'm proud of her.
I can't believe it is the last time we'll be getting a child ready for a homecoming dance. It was worth the hours running around getting flowers, inserts for the modesty and of course the major hair job. The time with my daughter is priceless.

Do you know that Folger's commerical they play at Christmas time, where the mom wakes up and finds that her son (who has been gone awhile) made coffee? Well, that's what it felt like in the Crawford house this morning. No coffee, we don't drink that, but I found evidence of a child sneaking in during the night.
If these weren't enough, a driver's license on the bathroom mirror confirms it all.
Joyful day in Ohio!

What do you go to the county fair for? For me this has just been a part of life to look forward to every Septemember.
Growing up on a small farm farm we (Dad) raised animals. Then we got to show them at the fair through 4-H. I loved every minute of 4-H. Doing the projects, showing the animals, getting ribbons, it was fun.
So fun, that I always thought that we would have a mini farm of our own.
So some day, when I get that mini farm of my own, I want to have these cows.
Aren't they just cute? They look like they could make chocolate milk, don't they?
Pygmy goats are so cute to, maybe a couple of these running around would be fun.
Once again, hanging out with the Spellmans.
I showed sheep for most of my 4-H experience. But, my favorite thing to show honestly, was pigs. I only did that one year. Who knew?
To answer my original question. I go to the fair for french fries. They never quite taste the same any where else. I eat mine drowned in vinegar.

We saw a lot of things, but one of the things were champion axe teams. My personal favorite is chain saw carvings.
