Getting Ready for the Fair

Next week is fair time! This is Jake's first year in 4-H so we're starting slow by only entering 2 projects. Actually I think 2 projects is about right so maybe we'll stick with that. He chose to make rolled sugar cookies and a wooden step stool. We did a practice run on the cookies last weekend and will make the ones for the fair Tuesday night. The stool is almost complete. He sanded it down and put a coating of oil on it. The linseed oil/turpentine mix smelled really strong, hence the need for the face mask. It needs another coat of oil and then it will be finished!
