We went back to the Goshen Fair again, and this year Zoe was even big enough to stand on the stool at the potter’s station. (A few years ago she was asleep on my back while Ezra watched Reggie the Potter’s booth churn out some great little trinkets.) Lots of prize winning photos, flowers, giant pumpkins and of course.. the rides. We even met a 2 day old calf and Ezra seemed appalled that its mother wasn’t nearby!
Ezra is right now finishing up the book ‘The Farmer Boy’ by Laura Ingalls Wilder (thanks grandma!) and there’s a whole chapter on milk-fed pumpkins and winning ribbons for the best flowers, fruit and veggies. Ezra loved being able to step into a real state/county fair after reading about it.
