Fun Day At The Fairgrounds!

Today, the boys and I went to a 4-H gathering/event at the Texarkana Fairgrounds. We had a blast! There was an entire day planned out of wonderful entertainment for the kiddos and myself. Here is some of the "coolness" we participated in:
  • Shooting BB guns
  • Flower planting
  • Dog Training
  • Livestock Showing
  • Hunting Simulations
  • Photography
  • Cooking In the Kitchen
  • Horse Maintenance
  • Unlimited soft serve ice cream cones (the boys double fisted these at times!)

There were several other activities to participate in, we just were not able to fit them all in. We did have some monsoon-like rain at times, but we did not let that stop the good times! We were served lunch and all of this fun was...FREE!! Can you believe it?? Oh, and I entered a drawing and won fifty dollars....wowweee! Could this day be any better??

We did meet some fellow homeschoolers there and are delighted that they are going to be a part of our schooling experience this upcoming year...such wonderful people! What a blessing from God! The boys met some great new friends and traded emails/phone numbers so they could stay in contact since we live farther away than just down the road.

It was another great day for the Smiths!
