Back to School ~ Part 4 and the County Fair Comes to an End


  • For all of you in blogland that wanted to see how Line's first day of school went, I have learned she does not like to have her picture taken, so you will have to just hear about her start of school. All exchange students met first with a counselor to have a tour of the school. When I asked the Norwegian girls how their first day was, Line said 'ok'...Emilie said 'very interesting' and Anna said 'scary'. I asked her 'scary' in what way? Well, because it is so big and so different from school at home.

And my day?? Scary...I met 88 new faces...with 88 new names...

Line and I both have homework...
Today was the last day for the Brown County Fair. Not much went on out there today. The 4-Hers sell their cattle...and then, of course, the clean-up. My girls had wanted to ride the ponies, but there is an 85 lb. limit for riders.

Hubby, Emily and Line experienced their first Rodeo. We saw some impressive cattle roping, barrel racing, and bull riding...


I love to visit the animals...did I mention that I grew up on a farm?



















And you have to try the Corn Dogs...perhaps the most popular Fair Food of all.

New schools always seemed scary to me too. They will do fine and settle in.
You grew up on a farm??? Wow. I feel I may have lived in a zoo for a while, but not a farm. :0
