I can't believe that August is almost over! JC reminds me constantly that it is Box Elder County Fair time... I used to live at the fair, during fair week. I loved checking out all the booths, working with my Dad in the Farm Bureau booth (they paid you with a steak dinner the next week!), the rodeo, fair friends, the good food, and great music. I had a sheep at the fair every year that I would take care of, show, and sell. It was always so exciting to see what you would place, what ribbon you would get, and how much you could sell your sheep for. (When you are thirteen, selling your sheep for $700 isn't too bad of a profit.) I loved being there and being a part of it all. It always meant school would start the Monday following, there were new clothes in my closet just waiting to be worn, and a backpack full of all the fun school supplies. Awww... I miss my county fair.
Enjoy a day for me.
We have been trying to get our last few moments of Summer in this week. I'm definitely not complaining that it is almost over... I'm already in the mood for FALL, but I'm sad to see Summer go... especially, because we haven't been able to get in all the fun places we wanted to go.Some of the random things we have been up to are:
*JC and I were able to take off for a day and leave Zenock with his new best buddy Kate. His work was having an "ORG" day at Kings Dominion. (Virginia's version of six flags.) It was fun to just hang out, "just us" all day. Would you believe it was the longest I have ever left Zenock. I think I am in need of a real vacation. :)
*We were able to meet up for dinner at the Cheesecake factory (yum!) with my Uncle who was in town. Check out the co. he works for: Naartjie kids... cute, cute clothes!
*Preparing/giving talks in church.
*Meetings with the FBI...
*Visiting with friends one last time before we move.
*Shopping/online shopping/planning/preparing/ for all those things that my new house is going to need. If you have any fun/cute online home decor stores... please share!
*Everything "Pan the Man"... Peter Pan that is. I new this day would come. Zenock has developed an obsession with the movie... just like his Dad. He loves to pretend to fly around just like Pan. He also loves anything to do with Alligator's.... If you ask him what the Alligator says, he will sway back and forth and say, "Tick-tock." He is constantly making me laugh.
I love my Zenock. I love this age. I love his imagination. I love being his Mom. :)
Enjoy the rest of Summer...
