The family had a great time at the county fair last week. Abby entered cookies and a family portrait; Drew made a Lego sculpture; and I entered some canned goods, garden basket and sewing items. We all came away with ribbons and a little cash. It was a learning experience and we have some more ideas for next year!
The kids were in the Kids Parade last Friday afternoon with a group from church. Saturday, Abby was in the big Fair Parade with her fellow dancers. We enjoyed a long day at the fair and watched the rodeo Friday night.
Drew & Abby were happy to start school on Monday. Drew is a 3rd grader and Abby's in 2nd grade. Mally and I are enjoying our long days together and she's quite a little helper. We're still working in the garden and have started painting the exterior of the new utility room. I'm hoping we'll be able to finish the tape & texture and paint inside this weekend. Still so much to do!
