Wow, our busy week has finally come to an end. Growing up in a small rural community gives us the great pleasure of being a big part of our County fair. We spent last week moving all of my classroom materials from one school to another since I will be teaching within the same district but at a different site. I am very excited for the change but I do believe that I could have done without having to pack up 10 years of teaching. Once this large task was complete we set out from many play dates and fair activities. Growing up in a small rural community gives us the great pleasure of being a big part of our county fair. Our daughter Ava was very excited about the fair. We made sure to stop at all the exhibit halls and look at the numerous talents that we have within our community. Wow, it was amazing! I entered a "Down on the Farm" quilt and received 1st place and two baked goods which also received placings. It was then off the see the 4-H and FFA animals which Ava loved! With a 2 year old, (almost 3) there is no possible way that we could go to the fair and not ride the carnival rides. The beaming smile on her face explained it all as she rode each and every ride in the kiddy area!
We are now preparing for a fun and relaxing summer that will be spent with family and friends! Hope all of you are enjoying your summer as well!
