Now onto 4-H...

Saturday was the Summer Doe show.  If you follow us on Instagram (OldHouseHomestead) you saw a few pictures from that day.  

Ready to go!!

Isaac won Champion Sr. Dairy Doe and Grand Champion Dairy Doe with his goat, Pixie!

Hannah won Reserve Champion Jr. Dairy Doe with her goat, April!

And Lydie won a blue ribbon with her little girlie, Daisy!

Sunday I came down with a stomach bug so hubby took the kiddos to summer judging on Monday since I was still under the weather (one of the perks for having a hubby that teaches school and has the summer off!).  He tried his hardest to get pictures from that day, but with kids in various buildings and he had all 8 of them there with him we'll cut him a little slack! 

 Foods:  Lydia made bananaberry muffins (recipe HERE) and got a blue ribbon.  Isaac made biscuits (recipe HERE) and got a blue ribbon.  Hannah made a peach and oatmeal tea ring (I'll share the recipe soon!) and won blue, honor, and champion ribbons (and is making another one for the state fair next week!).  Rebekah made a blueberry crumb top pie and got a blue ribbon.  (Crust recipe HERE, filling recipe HERE)

 Noah entered an electrical set and got a blue ribbon!

 Lego was tough.  Let's just say judging was...interesting.  Noah won blue, honor, reserve champion ribbons.  Rebekah won blue and honor ribbons. Hannah won a blue ribbon.  Isaac won blue and honor ribbons.
 Isaac's creation...a mountain camping scene.

Hannah's creation...a Lego Friend's strip mall.

Tuesday there was more judging and I was able to go!  
It wore me out, but I went and I'm so glad I did!  

 Hannah got blue, honor, and reserve champion for her embroidery!

Lydia got a blue ribbon for her embroidery!

Rebekah got a blue ribbon for her sign she made!  
(After fall fall and display she will be selling this in our Shop!  Half of proceeds will go to charity!)

Isaac won a blue ribbon for his punched tin art!  
You can't tell too well, but it is an Indianapolis colts helmet. 

Noah won blue for a pencil drawing of a black capped chickadee! 

Isaac won blue and honor ribbons for his step stool in woodworking!

Lydia won a blue ribbon for her pillow!

Hannah won blue, honor, champion, and state fair ribbons for her ironing board cover, organizer and pin cushion!  
It's going down to the State Fair next week!  

For her champion ribbons she was invited to attend an awards ceremony Wednesday night after the ice cream social!  She received two trophies for her efforts!  

We are so proud of all of our kiddos and their accomplishments!  
They learn so many life skills in 4-H!  That alone is worth it!  
The ribbons and trophies are the icing on top!
