I love talking to the kids about this Holy Day (even if I don't love to take them kicking to church sometimes...this is a stage, right?). They always come up with such beautiful imagery when we're talking about Heaven. Add in the Blessed Mother and, well, the discussion lasted the whole way to Washington, PA. Again, no car radio = lots of quality discussion time.
We headed South this morning to take in the county fair. Today was "kids under 12 are free until 4 PM". I love those kinds of things. I've become rather obsessive about saving admission whenever possible. It's a good way to save up for important purchases like funnel cakes and ice cream :0)
Here are some photos. I love seeing all the animals and the amazing handiwork that some people can produce. The kids loved the chickens and rabbits best...oh, and the "runaway" pig that passed us. Ah, country life.
We are so blessed.
