Today, the family braved the heat in order to do our yearly trek to the LA County Fair. This year proved to be especially fun and exciting. There were major prizes won and lots of blessings all around.
After a good night’s sleep and a decent breakfast, we loaded up the car and headed into the scorching heat. (Even at 9 in the morning, it’s hot!) It was well worth the soaring temps as we met several friends throughout the day and enjoyed a day of learning in the field.
As I said, the day was great! We went through absolutely all of the educational exhibits, some twice, and even had some extra fun. “T” won an amazing competition which was very important to her, so she is very pleased.
Part of our fun was due to free rides being earned for reading books over the summer. Even though each of the kids received six free rides (this is a huge cost savor for us, having four kids and prices being ridiculous for rides), some of the vendors actually let the kids ride a few things free! The kids had a blast and we parents even got to enjoy a few too.
After a long day, seven whole hours worth, we finally headed back home. Rest and relaxation were in order, so showers and naps it was.
Now… time for some catching up on my WP friends’ adventures and homeschooling advice.
Is anyone else heading out to their local fair this month?
