We had Sam this summer and we worked tons on his reading. He came to us hating to read. This photo was taken towards the end of the summer where I found him reading to Sylbie ALL on his own. It made me emotional and I just had to take a picture. We took him to the library often and he went to a tutor every week and through that we realized he enjoys reading informational books. I mean, what better book could he want to read...how awesome!! Way to go Sam!!
This was my first time at the MN State Fair!! The family had a blast! It was insane how many people were there. We ate like pigs, I think I gained 20 pounds and I could have kept eating. We ate roasted corn, hot dogs, french fries and fried oysters!! We have a ride addict in the family already, Sylbie could not get enough of the rides. Looks like I'll have a roller coaster buddy someday!! Yeah!! The craziest thing for me is that EVERYTHING was on a stick. They even had deep fried candy bars, 'What The Heck'!! I know we will make this a family tradition, I mean you have to for the roasted corn, but never again on a Saturday!
