fair day at the fair

Jonathan and I. We didn't eat the fried fare offered at the fair, but the ice cream was really really good. More than fair.

Camille wants to be a soldier when she grows up.

Jon just liked trying on the helmet.

Camille and Charlotte Claire, so excited to go on the bus to the fair.

And the reason we went to the fair see Samuel James, future soldier, be sworn in in a ceremony that honored veterans.

Hot and tired and need to jump in the pool. The fair is hot and dusty and expensive, but we had fun anyway. It is good to be home, even though certain girls didn't do much around here while we were gone and blah, I certainly don't feel like it right now. We are headed for a church gathering in an hour or so, and need dinner first.

Paul is coming home tomorrow evening, yay!!! I seriously did not know one could miss someone so much!!!

We went camping at Gilbert Lake state park near Oneonta last weekend and left #5 and #3 home. They did not want to go and we did not have to board 2 dogs and way too many cats. I figured we would come home to a mess, but they had all the floors swept, most of the laundry and dishes done and had the trash and recycling out to the road when we got home after midnight sunday night/monday morning. There is hope for them after all?
