Fryeburg Fair


Going to the Fryeburg Fair is sort of a tradition in our family. Each year we plan on going and looking at the animals, eating fried dough, watching the horse pulling, shopping, etc. Our family was able to go on Monday, and like always, it was an awesome day! We didn't get a lot of pictures, but will post one of the horse pulling team (one of the most important events of the day :).

Forgot the Camera

When we went to the barn on Monday night I forgot to bring my camera. :( So no pictures of the horses this week, but keep looking out for them. I'll get them posted as soon as I can!

A Day At Plymouth

We traveled two hours for a field trip to Plymouth Plantation today. The weather was simply gorgeous - the air chilly and the sun bright! We enjoyed our time even though it was our second visit there See the movie below.

An evening at Blessings Farm

As of a few weeks ago we were told about a horse farm about 15-20 minutes away from us. After checking it out and finding that they were a non-profit ministry to underprivileged children that needed lots of help, we decided to volunteer on Monday nights. We were thrilled!

Last night we picked up our friend, Jane, and headed to the barn. The pasture was extremely muddy. Going to get the horses was no easy chore, especially since you sink at least six inches into the icky muck with each step you take! (One of the kids lost their boot!)

Volunteering at the barn usually involves picking a student to work with and helping them groom, tack, etc. Last night was a good night - we were groomed and saddled right on time. During lesson time, Leroy and Caleb got the feed ready while Amelia and mom observed and helped out.

After feeding and letting them back out into the pasture we found out we got done five minutes early. It was a great night, and a beautiful ride home going through the country roads. We were able to see a gorgeous full moon just as we were coming home. We will post some pictures probably next week.
