Field Trip!!!!! Medieval Fair 2018!!!!!!!!!!!

      We wait all year! We plan for this! Our excitement builds until the day is finally here THE MEDIEVAL FAIR!!!!!!!!!!! We go every year and every year is better than the last, every year they learn even more and every year we add to the amazing memories we have made from this magical place!!! The Hoggetowne Medieval Faire!!!! We have things that have become traditions with this fair! We look forward to the actors every single year we know they will all be there! They are our favorite people of all! One day every year we get to step back in time to a place that is full of history and magic. It is as good as Christmas in this house!

      The actors are beyond amazing! We love that is the same people over and over, it feels like seeing old friends! Skyler always dresses for it and it never ceases to amaze me the way they all act towards her. She always feels so special at the fair. We have been enjoying lunch in years past only to have musicians come and sit with her asking even to sit with the fair maiden! Her shyness goes away for this day and she is this bubble of energy. All of the kids have their favorite places to visit at the fair and their favorite things to see. Before we leave for the fair every year Skyler has a picture in her dress! She looks so pretty!!

Peek At Our Week 19

      Well this is the week! The week we go to the fair and the kids are bouncing off the walls over it! Skyler is excited to give the King and Queen a special gift she has made for them. It is a triptych. It has all the pictures of them from her years at the fair.

Peek At Our Week 18

      We had such a great week! After some truly crummy weather it was nice to get outside and have fresh air and walk without seeing our breath! We also had a fun little friend join us this week! I had almost forgotten the busyness of a toddler. I had almost forgotten the look of wonder on their faces or how big their eyes get when they see and do things for the first time. The joy that little girl had in just finding shells was so touching! She also had great fun tearing up a cattail and watching the fluff from it float everywhere. 

       We are still killing the Medieval times and did some pretty cool art this week as well. The kids all had a fun week.

The Dinosaur Basket

      My kids even at their age are still amazed with dinosaurs! When I saw this journal I knew I had to have it! Of course the journal needed books and stuff and just needed a basket of its own!!
