We have been very busy here on the farm lately. We have taken a few days off from school in order to start preparing things around here for winter and cold weather. The whole outside of the house has been washed. The pool has been closed and covered. We have butchered one large batch of roosters. We have started to strip out the gardens and have about half the stalls in the barn cleaned out and re-bedded for the winter months. Needless to say, I have not had much time to sit and write here on the blog. But...we have taken the time to take the children to a few local festivals. So will share pictures from those today.
Tim had to work but I took the children to Belmont Baptist Church's fall festival. The weather was perfect and everyone who helped put it on, did a great job.
There were many inflatable things to bounce in and climb on for all ages.
These types of outings can be very stressful for Zeke. Fairs, amunsment parks and festivals can be very over simulating to him and bring on anxiety because he feels they are unsafe. He did very well that day.
This festival had many booths there for the children to play games at and win a small prize or a treat.
We do not keep a lot of sweets in the house at all but William wanted to do the cake walk. He said he had never done one before and wanted to participate. So I let him.
When all was said and done 540 guests had attended from the community and 30 had accepted Jesus. Praise God! What a wonderful day.
Tim and I also took Antonio, Elizabeth and Zeke, the next weekend, to the Home Depot Fire and Safety festival. William and Carolyn were with my sister for the day that day.
I pray your fall is full of beautiful days and times of making happy memories.
Isaiah 55:12 For ye shall go out with joy, and be led forth with peace: the mountains and the hills shall break forth before you into singing, and all the trees of the field shall clap their hands.
