Fun At the Fair and Fun In the Garden! Week 33 2018

There’s lots of work to be done in the garden! We need to get potatoes dug so we can get beans planted. Then there’s the cantaloupe that should have been harvested several days ago and the watermelon that also needs to be picked. With all the laughter going on, it seems to be more fun than work!

Oh the places you will go and the things you will learn, see and do at the fair!

It’s Fair Time! Week 30

Another fair has come to a close… lots learned and great memories made!

It’s day 2 of the fair. All Miley has left to have judged is chickens and garden entries. We show you a few of her entries and then have a little fun on the rides.

The first day of the fair is here! We’re getting our animals and all our stuff packed up and settled in at the fair.

Getting Ready for the Fair!

Fair time is an exciting but busy time around our house. We have a lot of stuff to do like last minute procrastinated projects to finish up, animal prep, project judging and lots more. Unfortunately, Miley got sick in the middle of all the preparation so this year she wasn’t quite as enthusiastic as she normally is just because she wasn’t feeling all that great. Here’s a little peek into what our fair prep was like….

My Cat Chubbles

Well fair week has officially begun. Unfortunately for us it’s not gotten off to a very good start. Yesterday was hand pet judging day and Miley woke up sick so we weren’t able to make it. She was very disappointed because she’d worked hard on her speech and story about her cat. Since she was unable to share it at the fair we decided to share it here.

Prepping for the Fair

Fair time is always a fun and exciting time for us. After spending the year working on their projects, the kids can finally show off all their hard work. This year is my oldest daughter’s last year and my youngest daughters first year, so it’s a happy yet kinda sad time mixed all into one. Speaking of happy yet sad all mixed together, my oldest recently found an apartment and is moving out. He’s got a great job, we’re so proud of him and he’s so ready to start a life of his own… but wow, I just don’t know if Mom and Dad are quite ready for this. I guess it’s one of those things we’re never quite ready for… it just happens and we somehow get through it. So he’s moving and we’re getting last minute projects… or more like the majority of the projects, since we tend to procrastinate, ready for the fair. So it’s a busy time right now… real busy. But busy is good because it keeps my mind occupied and makes it easier to ease into all these new changes. Time sure does fly. Speaking of time flying, Michael and I recently had our 25th anniversary. We haven’t had a chance to celebrate that yet, due to our busy schedules, but we’re hoping to at least sneak in a dinner together in all this craziness. Where does the time go?
