The Indiana State Fair and first day of school...

Does anybody else love going to a fair??? I LOVE it!!! We go specifically for the yummy food and to see all of the animals. Lucky for us, our state fair is 10 minutes away! This year, we went early enough to see the donkeys and mules, including a "Zedonk", which is a mix of a zebra and donkey. He was super cute! And , we ate a little bit of everything!!! We even tried some deep fried cookie dough this year and it was actually pretty darn yummy! The "new" weird fair food of the year was chocolate covered bacon. I saw it, saw somebody eat it, heard them say it wasn't bad but, I have NO interest in trying it. Sounds disgusting!!! So, we enjoyed lemon shake-ups, corn dogs, pork bbq, italian sausage, fried cheese, elephant ears and shaved ice. All of which were fantastic!

So, today is the first day of school. We decided to pull our children out of our public schools, due to the fact that the teachers are basically glorified babysitters (soooo many behaviour problems in our school). They are going to a local charter school. I've heard great things about charter schools in general but, especially this one. We just can't afford private school so this is the next best thing. I can't wait to pick them up and hear all about their first day!
