The Fair and then End of a Small School

A few weekends ago we headed to the Iroquois County Fair. Alex had so much more fun than last year. So much changes in just one year. Tears were free-flowing a year ago as he rode the merry-go-round with my mom. This year, he LOVED the rides. We went on the Merry-go-round, the elephant/dumbo ride, the big slide, the super fast racecars, the caterpillar roller coaster, and a tilt-a-world kind of ride. :) We weren't sure if he was enjoying the racecars or the roller coaster, but we found out he was saying "No all done" not "all done." We saw some animals, ate some fair food, and of course had to play on the John Deere tractors! Those were definitely the highlight of Alex's day at the fair.

The weekend started with a ride on Claire's glider

Racecars with Claire (by the end of the ride, Alex was on top of Claire's lap)

Gotta watch this video to see how fast these racecars went. :)

This past weekend we headed home again for the C-I High celebration since this was the last year it was open. We weren't able to stay as long as we hoped, but we were able to at least do our own tour of the high school (Kent had never been to my high school) We were able to see Rachel and at least take a picture in front of our old lockers. We actually had to sneak into the school. As Rachel said, "Only in a small town can you sneak into a school and not worry about getting in trouble."
