How much summer can I squish into the last few days of it?
Yesterday, we took the kids to the Evergreen State Fair. I don’t think I’ve ever been. I didn’t get to walk through the exhibit bldgs, which I really wanted to, or ride the ferris wheel… but I saw sheep, and the kids had a really good time. We went with one of Nate’s brothers and his family, kind of last minute.
Veronica loved the Wacky Worm. She went three times.
Abby and Nate went on some hideous thing that spins you every-which-way you could imagine. I have no idea why she did it, but I’m proud of her.
Speaking of last minute, I suddenly decided this morning to whisk the kids off to my in-laws cabin for a quick and easy overnighter. The catalyst to this decision was discovering a really cheap Ashford Traditional on Craigslist this morning that is half way between our house and the cabin. So it seemed like a great opportunity. We haven't been to the cabin since February, and the kids LOVE it. Plus, I'd been hoping to find some inexpensive wheels for my girls to spin on. It'd be so fun (eventually, when they can do it well enough that I don't have to hover over them and fix things) to spin together. We're leaving after lunch.
After these plans were made, Clark seems to have come up sick.
We’re going anyway. It’ll be a low key trip.
I don’t understand what the problem is. He’s having digestive distress, again, and is very lethargic. The digestive distress pops up every couple of months for a day or so, but he doesn’t usually get sick with it. I’m assuming it’s a coincidence and hoping it doesn’t have to do with the fair.
