The Country Fair

By Wanda Parker

The kids at Novaland, La Palma, CA spent the summer creating a Country Fair.  The fair was a one day event held last Friday.

It is important for kids to work for a period of time (delayed gratification), and then have the satisfaction of presenting to their community what they have accomplished.  What a sense of pride and excitement.  I got to be one of the judges.

The gold fish were dying quickly. 
Oh No!  The goldfish are dying!  Can we save them?
