Meet Me There....


We just spent the weekend at our church's annual Family Camp! It is always a wonderful time of fellowship and learning together. Even w/ the bias of being the mom of many of these people, this song was a favorite! Brought tears to several eyes....the anticipation of heaven! (We missed the first verse....just caught the chorus for that verse.)

Dyed-In-The-Wool

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. 
Here's the result....
Later this sheep was sheared and the wool carded for use. It made for a very fun demonstration. 

The girls split the wool and will spin some yarn......perhaps you'll see pictures later of what this experiment turned into!

Fair Ending to the Fair

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!
