  • When you're kid, everyone always said "enjoy this, it will be gone before you know it." Fair days are definitely one of those times I wish I could go back to and slow it down. It was so much fun. And yes, lots of lessons learned. Lots of tears shed, pride squashed and then rebuilt.

    I'm so glad and thankful to have those experiences as well.

    Thank you for sharing.

    Katie and Bonnie, I'm with you on the great memories of Fair. I wish we could all go back! Those were definitely times of physical and emotional growth. Losses, wins, overall life experiences. This year with Jilly being able to experience it for her 2nd time, was especially poignant for me. The idea that she nearly didn't make it, to watching her ride into the arena on her yellow mare, both all decked out in purple, was a moment to grasp onto and never forget. She was in 4 classes, and got 3 Reserve Grand Champion ribbons. That's icing on the cake, but the real prize, was just that she got to go.

    Thanks for sharing!
