We went up to the Altamont Fair tonight so Maddie could give her John Muir presentation again. She did an excellent job. She impressed the judge because the computer and projector wouldn't "talk" to each other and she didn't get flustered. She just turned the computer around toward us and gave her talk. Good marks for that and another blue ribbon to add to the collection.
And now for the REALLY BIG news...Maddie has not 1, not 2 but 3 photos going to the State Fair AND her Tree Identification Book is also going. I don't think her feet have touched the ground since we entered that room in the 4H building. Big smiles all around. The milkweed pod, the Yellow Goatsbeard gone to seed and the eagle are all on the way.
So thats the big news! We will be heading to the State Fair soon!!
