Each year, our entire third grade designs, creates and enters a project for the Junior Competition at the Tunbridge Fair in Vermont. The theme this year was "Cows" and we constructed the world's very first (at least I think it is...) Cowousel!
Sorry about the quality (or lack there of) of the photographs... They placed our Cowousel directly in front of a window and it was a (thankfully) bright, sunny day. This baby can spin (manually) and has a music box attached that had been painted to resemble a Holstein! We won a blue (first prize) ribbon and found out the next day that we were also awarded "Best of Show," which was very unexpected! The students were thrilled beyond belief!
Isn't he CUTE?? Well, in an E.T. sort of way...
There's been so much happening with me lately, and I am afraid I have neglected my journal reading/writing. Please accept my apologies. I have more to share, but I've been rather unproductive today due to the fact that the girls are both away for the weekend and while I miss them and will be so very happy to see them come evening, it feels GOOD to just "be," doing very little other than enjoying the peace and quiet, alone with my thoughts, my music and my writings. Anyhow, I got off track... While my day has BEEN unproductive, I really must get some things done then maybe I'll even get out of the house and go for a leisurely afternoon drive.
Enjoy your Sunday!
thank you to Dianna for the Sazzy tag
