"It's one of the best times of the year," according to Shaelyn. She waits for the fair all year long. Today was $1 rides except that the kids all had earned 5 free rides by reading minutes from reading club at the library. Shaelyn chose her favorite - the merry-go-round, the circus cars, the flying elephants and - are you ready - big stuff - the alligator roller coaster. For her last pick, she and Halle chose the horses again. Tomorrow we get to go to the grand stand with our other free coupons and see the off road derby. The girls love that. We would have loved to come back tonight and do the rides when
they're all lit up but I have a ball game. It's my last of the year - tournament games. This is all telling me that summer is about over :(
I guess I have to get ready for things to get a little bit more scheduled again - but really - I don't have much of a choice. The fall has great things happening too - Shaelyn gets to go to preschool, different holidays, etc.. Aaah, life goes on.
