We drank in the last weekend of the season as fully as possible. We took in the Renaissance Festival, delighting in the extravagant costumes, odd and extensive entertainment, and frequent animal rides. We all had a good time except for the last 20 minutes of tatrum-throwing (more on the part of mom and dad than the children... we needed a nap!) and the late night tummy upset (fair food should have a kid-friendly rating system like television!).
Joe loved the elephant ride more than anybody, but Maya has earned a lot of street cred around the neighborhood with her elephant expertise!
How could parents survive without a sandbox? It has been the most consistent distraction of the summer!
Today we even ran in the sprinkler.
And now, as Maya quietly tells me she is afraid to go to preschool tomorrow and has no interest in meeting new friends, I protectively wonder if I should be homeschooling. At least in these early years.
Of course, by Friday she'll have an entire classroom of new friends, because that's how young children are. Wish us luck! Tomorrow I'll post pictures of the new, big girl room!
