Mini Fair!!!

Mini fair... oh mini fair.  We began our mini fair with LOTS of hydration.  We also spent a fair amount of time singing things like Bohemian Rhapsody (we are getting quite good at this).  Then we drank more water- it is very, very important to stay hydrated when you have a big, important day like mini fair.  After SO much singing and SO much planning and announcements, we had a LOT of homesteaders and commissioners needing to pee.

still waiting!!!
 Next on the agenda was to finish everything up.  This included last (or not quite last) minute touches on rides and attractions, more sign making, lots of table moving.... and moving just about everything else that was not bolted down, and more sign making.  Everyone knows that it takes many, many signs to thoroughly confuse fair goers.  In this, I think we were successful!
