And she won some...

Life lesson learned for Abigail Shaw. Effort is credited. When you do your best, and work hard, you will succeed. These are pictures of some of Abbie's 4-H projects. She wanted me to note that some of them are missing their ribbons. This is of major importance, b/c her ribbons were very special!

This is her horse poster. I think it was her favorite, and of course...horses are her favorite! She won 1st place, Champion, and honorable mention on it.

Kind of hard to see, but it is way at the top. (And then her bigger picture below) The beekeeping poster was one of her better projects. She got Reserve Grand Champion, Champion, 1st place, and Special Merit. Oh, and it will be going to the State Fair. :)

She was required to do a dog poster b/c of being in the dog show. After the show, she really did not want to participate in the poster. But, we looked over all of the pictures of Max, and she decided that she did still love him. Her work paid off and she won Reserve Grand Champion, Champion, 1st Place, and it will be going to the State Fair too!

I think that she worked the hardest on her sewing project. She was required to take a sewing test and learn all about the machine. I was pretty impressed with how well she did. Mamaw and Aunt Kay did a great job with her! She got 1st place and Special Merit and also was chosen for the display case. :)

Here are the 2 ribbons that were missing on her posters. They are her Reserved Grand Champions. Reserve Grand Champion means that you won 2nd place out of all of the age groups and projects in that Category. She beat out several teenagers, so she was quite proud!!!

Super, super job. I am so excited to see that you worked hard and did a good job. I'm sure that you were a very gracious winner and godly example too. I'll certainly look for your posters when I go to the state fair.
Mrs. Fox.
P.S. If you ever come back to Lafayette...I want you in my club, O.K.?
