From Tractor Pulls to Swimming Pools

Summer is flying by…between the drought and the activities for the kids, I feel like I need another summer vacation!

County fair season is drawing in for a close for us. We have activities at three county fairs between here in Indiana and back home in Illinois. As if I don’t have enough going on, I might as well have commitments at three county fairs. Here in Indiana our State Fair starts next week. We have been to three county fairs and had some fun with pedal tractor pulls. The Princess even managed a full-pull!

It’s hard to believe the amount of time we have spent at the pool for Boo’s swim meets and practice. In one meet he managed to finish first and last! I think he is loving swimming. Even though the season is over he still is practicing in our pool.

    Can’t believe the summer is almost over. So glad our fair is over, even though it was probably one of our easiest fairs as fair board members go. I think it was the added first year 4-H parent hat that kind of tipped the scales with all the other hats Steve and I both wear during the fair that kind of put us over the edge at times. The biggest lump in my throat came when K and her calf went in to the ring with all the other BIG steers for champion drive. Neither one of them had been that close to and on the same side of the fence with steers that big. It all went well, but the big boys were frisky, so I think I set a record for holding my breath until she got out of there. Whew! Come on school! ;-) Hope to see you at the State Fair on the 13th.
