Fair Drop-Off Week

What a coincidence that our fair drop-off week happened on our week off from school?  We drove to the fairgrounds on Tuesday.  We were early for some categories, but the nice fair workers told us it was okay to leave our entries to be checked in when those volunteers arrived.  We had to be back home for choir practice, so we couldn't really hang around. 

I actually entered two categories this year:

Tera's entries: 

Michael's entries:  

Daniel's entries:  

This morning I helped the kids nail down their THIRTEEN culinary entries that are dropped off a week from Saturday.  Then, I went shopping for what I could find of the ingredients.  It will require at least one more trip out to get everything.  

Like I said, we had the week off from school, but honestly it has not felt like a relaxing week.  Tera and I had our first choir practices.  I have to say that I love being back in a choir!  

JP ordered something from Lowe's and it came in this awesome box.  Michael was so happy Daddy had it ready for him when we got home from swim lessons and chess yesterday.  

Speaking of swim lessons,  I'm pushing past all the anxiety and hanging in there.  Honestly, I never would have thought I would have gotten this far.  Some days I'm more scared than others, but I just get in there anyway. Sometimes,  I find myself closing my eyes and praying right before I push off from the side of the pool. 

In the midst of all the busy-ness, stress and craziness of life, God still sends us reminders of His goodness!
