Cleaning up at the county fair

S1's picture of the bird where he was experimenting with perspective won first prize in the 5-8 age group at the county fair:
S2's drawing (of tepees) placed second in the 4-year age group. As did her clay walrus. The wife's glazed ceramic plate placed first too.

The result gave each kid an argument for how they'd beat out the other. S1 said that since he got a first, he did better. But S2 countered that she got more prize money than him ($18 to his $10), so there!

Fortunately (for us), we didn't have to adjudicate. Outside the exhibits area, there were a bunch of rides and the kids forgot their argument and went on the rides.
