Fair time is one of our favorite times and we look forward to it all year long! Ella has competed in the tractor pull competition the last three years and Micah got to compete in it for the first time this year! The kids did great but neither of them did a "full pull." Micah was so upset he didn't get a trophy and we tried to explain to him that the trophy was for the kid who pulled the small tractor all the way up the ramp. We said "Look Micah, you got this cool ribbon!" Paul then started to read it to him "It says...." Micah cut him off and with a pouty face said "It says, Micah didn't win!" We were trying so hard not to laugh but it was too funny! So in the first competition he has ever been in he had to learn the tough lesson that you don't always win, sometimes you get a participation ribbon ;)

Here is that last three years Ella has done the tractor pull, it's fun to see how much she's grown!
