Why will I be at the county fair? Two words:  family tradition.  A tradition in which kids learn responsibility, compassion, heartbreak, creativity, respect, the importance of family, work ethic, and to quote the 4-H motto:  how to make the best better.

Isn’t that what every family wants for the future?

So where can you find me?  The East Pottawattamie County Fair in Avoca, Iowa.  Hope I see you there, too.

P.S. – I am doing Jen Schneider’s blog challenge and we were supposed to do a picture-inspired blog.  Hope you liked mine.  I know it’s a little out of my norm. :)

So did you learn any life lessons at the fair?  Been to a fair I need to know about?  Tell me what you have to say in the comments below. :)
