Knights of Old, er...Today!

With as many things that have been going on here lately, I'm way behind on everything. Last Saturday was our field day for the farm. We had almost 1,800 folks in attendance and I'm still trying to recover from the day.

Today, I wanted to share some pictures from the Renaissance Fair that came to the area. We have never been to one of these and since the boys are so into knights and swords, we thought it would be fun to take them.

We were a little disappointed with the lack of educational exhibitors they had there, but the kids still had lots of fun. We were hoping to see some jousting, however we found out once we got there that the jousting was held the weekend before. Maybe next year...

Andrew's turn!
A sword bigger than them all.


I can't imagine doing battle with this thing.  I'm sure I couldn't even lift it, let alone swing it!

A cute skit with a couple on horseback.
For only a dollar you can smash each other to smithereens. Huzzah!
This was held at Natural Chimneys and I think the kids liked the cave and big rocks best of all.
Fun day with fun memories.

glad you're recovering from field day.. you all did a wonderful job. my husband and i came away inspired and feeling our trek from manitoba, canada was well worth it. your marketing talk was very informative.. can i give you another nudge to write a book on the subject? :)

we too are Christians with 3 children we're planning on homeschooling and want to raise cows, chickens, and pigs for a living.. :) it was nice to be around others with similar values..

thanks to you ALL for putting yourselves out there to help others live the same dream..
