Papa playing games with his grandsons
Rachel had all sorts of games and prizes (like lace handkerchiefs and slingshots). Each of the kids entered something (like a craft, cookies, a sketch into the fair and received blue ribbons for their work. Even the preschoolers got blue ribbons and Wilson wore his for 48 hours straight, only taking it off to re-pin it to his p.js or new outfit.
We ate barbecued brisket (it was de-lish!) and everyone brought sides. After eating there was a sweet little ceremony recapping all of the topics each child had presented on over the course of the year (every 3rd Thursday of the month was presentation day) and they showed everyone what they entered into the fair (of course, I couldn't find my camera during this part!).
This is Wilson and Tyson's little friend, Mia, doing old fashioned stilts wither her daddy.
