Countdown to the fair

Countdown to the fair

As part of a summer series to My NDFB Life, we will be experiencing 4-H through the eyes of 15-year-old Paul Hanebutt. Paul is the son of Pete Hanebutt, NDFB Director of Public Policy. Throughout the summer, we will learn about the joys, struggles and rewards of being involved in 4-H. This is Paul’s seventh post.

It’s almost fair time, one of my favorite times of the year.

I’m excited to see my friends and how my pig performs at the fair. I hope my pig does well during the show, but I have to remember to not get caught up in winning the class and taking first. It’s important to remind myself that it’s a learning experience and I can always take something away from showing.

With the fair closing in, there’s a lot of preparation going on.

Read more about what's keeping Paul busy on the My NDFB Life blog.
