During the year, our 4-H wool club spent some time learning to dye wool. We used Kool-Aid and had a blast. Rachel and her friend MacKenzie wondered if the process would work while the wool was still on the animal.......So, at the fair they staged the experiment....imagining they wouldn't get in to trouble with anyone since the dye was simply Kool-Aid.....The ewe had to be well washed (pretty time consuming) and was then squirted with every color of Kool-Aid we could find.

The Clark County Fair (this is the largest fair in the state of Washington) concluded last night....So this morning we made a final trek.....to help load the last of the market lambs onto the trucks and to pick up our entries
Here is a smattering of our exhibits.....so much fun and so many good comments and suggesstions! We REALLY appreciate the judges' written remarks and encouragement to do better!

Rachel was in the fair kitchen today preparing gluten free pizza and salad.
While preparing the meal, the judge may ask them questions about what and why they are doing certain things. All is part of the evaluation.
She served it with Gingerberry Kombucha.
The judge thought her efforts worth a blue ribbon!
Good Job, Rachel!
