Doesn't everyone have one of these in their yard?


Today is our town's Oklahoma Centennial Parade. We had the agony privilege of putting together the float for our church.



The major up-side? The kids have had HOURS of pretend play from the late 1800's. They're in heaven. They were out on the float again this morning before 8:00 am. I'm afraid of the weeping and moaning there will be when it's time to take it down.

Apparently they have been raising pigs. My son built a water well on their land, so they didn't have to travel to a nearby town. Thankfully, we're not historically accurate, and my black child can have a fair share of the homestead.

Cam,

As I was outlining letters after the sun had gone down, I had MAJOR flashbacks to those all-night float cramming sessions!

Evan saw them and his heart about burst.

"They're in the parade mom! IN IT! In the parade!"

I don't know if he was going to laugh or cry, or both. I think next parade he's going to have to be in it in someway. LOL

We ate dinner in Blackwell last night on the way home from Wichita! I kept looking for you or your kids. But I knew you would never be seen in the KFC/Taco Bell. ;)
