The State Fair Alternative



Much to my chagrin, the State Fair adventure was rained out for us...So my Saturday took another twist.  As it turns out Annie had to go to school to work on her lesson plan for tomorrow morning.  She has  a meeting to attend and had to prepare the morning's lessons for the substitute.  We all went to see "Mommy's classroom" this year.  While the girls, Dad and Grandpa went to get Sandy from the "puppy groomer, " I stayed behind with Annie to help.  I got to color code the dominoes, sharpen the pencils, prepare a sample lesson and be in awe of her organization. 

So I missed the doughnut hamburger, deep fried twinkie,  corn dogs.  I missed the pigs and bunnies.  But Annie and I had a grand time just being together!

~~~^j^~~~
Thanks be to God!!

Visit Mary at The Little Red House and share in the beauty offered there.   Lisa at  Macro Monday  also has much to offer.  The pictures are grand.

I would also like to remind you that Wednesday is Adventure Tour Express.  Be thinking about the adventure you would like to share on our journey together!

  5. Sounds disappointing right up until the good time you had with your daughter. We were rained out on our day last year for our local fair and I haven't gotten over it yet. I needed some classroom time!

    Lovely mosaic to remind us it's that time of year.
    I think I could miss all you mentioned but not if funnel cake was involved. :)
    Wishing Annie a wonderful opening day tomorrow and a super year!!

  14. Yet another teacher here (I can see there are a few others who have commented as well) ... often spent time on weekends in my classroom preparing for the following week. How lovely that you enjoyed the day despite the change of plans! Such a great mosaic.

    Thanks for dropping by to visit my MM post ... it's heating up over here at the moment as Spring get nearer! Daytime temps are getting close to the 30 deg C mark again ... our cooler Winter temps will be a long forgotten memory soon.

  15. Oh, HORSEFEATHERS! I so love the State Fair here as well, but I don't think it is in our schedule either! I SOOOOOOO love seeing all the farm animals. I even milked a goat once and she was not happy with my city method!!!PULL HARD AND SQUEEZE! HEEEHHEEEE! Thank you dearest for coming to visit and I just adore John Michael Talbot's music...he truly touches the Divine Jesus in his work! Blessings, Anita
