First the good news!
We had a very productive and busy day in our household today. Today was the day that the boys had to submit their projects for the county youth fair. Ryan and I spent from 9:30 until 2pm cooking and cleaning up and I think he's got some winners here!
From left to right: white bread loaf, apple pie, and rosemary herb bread. You cannot imagine how good our house has smelled all day long!
Kyle had his projects done days ago and we matted everything up today:
He has two beautiful nature photos and a drawing of the Wharton courthouse. I cannot tell you what a good job he did. Every brick, piece of iron work, even the little hands and numbers on the tower clock are just perfect! If he doesn't win a blue ribbon for this, I'm going to faint and die!
We headed to the fair grounds around 4pm and checked in the projects:
There were LOTS of kids there entering projects, that was really good to see! But even better were to the TONS of homeschoolers there entering projects!
Now the bad news...
We came home to this:
THANK GOD it missed the house and the car! Our minivan is usually parked right beside the car and kids are usually in the driveway this time of day. No one was hurt and the car is apparently fine with just a few scratches!
Still, I am just sick and stressed!
The day before yesterday, my children and I were verbally assaulted by one of our neighbors (just for being a Catholic homeschooling family! I suppose if we were bigoted atheist terrorists then that would have been fine with him! ) and now all of THIS happens! When it rains it pours I guess!
And speaking of pouring...I'm going to pour a nice tall glass of something, take a hot bubble bath, and do a little more pouring...and drinking...maybe some more pouring...definitely more drinking....you get the picture!
Leave a comment...I needs some loves...
