Fun at the Circus!

We had a lot of fun last evening.  We got coupons for $5 tickets if we attended a 4:30 show.  The savings was great and we never would have gone if we had to pay full price.  Jeff and I had never been to a circus before, so it was something new for us.  The kids enjoyed it, too.  Kent wasn't sure he wanted to see any clowns. Kent says his favorite part was: Alex the clown, in one of his parts he kept popping balloons that he was supposed to give to an audience helper.  Kent also liked the parade they did with animals, performers and trainers.  Katy says her favorite part was every part and the clown popping balloons.  Kaomi says "My favorite part is the clowns.  I like the circus, too.  And the train." (we let all the kids go on a kiddie train ride).  Felicity took several short naps, she appeared to like the circus tent's roof the best it was dark blue with white stars.  I thought the elephants were cool and the contortionist was kind of weird to watch, he put himself into a small box.  Of course we had to sample Circus Popcorn and Cotton Candy.  Beware: the popcorn is very salty (they make it that way so you'll have to buy their drinks, too).

We are all excited.  We have plans to go to the circus this evening.

Pine Car Races

Kent, Katy and Kaomi all had vehicles in the car races at Christian Service Brigade this weekend. Kent entered an Ambulance in the open class for Tadpoles. It was really cool. He and Jeff worked hard on it and it had blinking lights. He earned two red ribbons and one blue ribbon. The categories being judged were for craftsmanship, design and speed. Katy entered a police car in the Powder Puff races she painted it red and blue and it also had blinking lights. She earned 2 red ribbons and 1 white ribbon. Kaomi entered a bright pink fire truck with purple windows. It had sparkling glitter on the lightbar. She received a participation ribbon. When we raced the three kids cars together the police car arrived first, followed closely by the fire truck in second and the ambulance in third. We celebrated afterwards with a trip to Fuddruckers for lunch.

We are in the process of putting in some new flooring. Hopefully the job will be completed by next Saturday. Today Jeff has been pulling off baseboards, linoleum and carpet.
