Anyways, every year they have a fundraiser in the fall that all the churches help out with. Our church helps with manning the ticket booths. It's generally a good time. My memories of past fairs is the tug of war, watching soccer games, seeing all the produce for sale, a HUGE book room with tons of books for sale and what not. Now they have soccer, bocce ball, more food booths, a junk tent and a silent auction tent. So changes have been made over the years. I still miss the huge book room and wish they still had that. It was fun browsing it.
I visited with a few people, even saw my nephew there which was a surprise. Bought some produce for a good price and while Jim was at a short meeting I unloaded the electronic gear at their e-bin. good way to get rid of all that stuff and support the camp at the same time. Met with a young lass who is looking to homeschool her children and needed some encouragement so I brought her some stuff. Hopefully it will be useful to her.
After the fair we stopped in at the medieval faire in Waterloo. This was just FUN. We did a whole bunch of things. The lad tried shooting a bow and arrow, knocked some angry birds off the castle wall, broke down a drawbridge, shot a cross bow and a whole host of other things. I met a fellow from the church I used to attend so it was good to say hi for a moment or two. It was just good to walk around and do things as a family. It was kinda cool at the bow and arrow place to actually land my arrow on the target. :) I explained to the lad that the people dressed up today, and the things we were doing were all to do with the age of castles and knights so it helped to put it into perspective for him.
I don't have my pics downloaded yet so can't share those with you.
