I noticed that none of my family have been making any comments on my posts. I am not sure if that is good or bad. Are they not interested? Are they not reading the posts? Do they feel that the posts are not worth talking about, or are they busy and don't have the time? I hope someone lets me know soon.

Well, as is tradition, we went to the Gwinnett County Fair. And, as usual, it was the same as it has been for the last 100 years. Second rate rides that I would be very apprehensive to put one of my family members on. Cotton candy, candy apples, and, of course, funnel cakes. Personally, I only go for the roasted corn. It is worth the trip, the admission fee, and all the other stuff just to be able to eat that yummy, salty, dripping with butter sensation that leaves your face and hands sooty from the burnt corn husks and left over charcoal. It is one of God's finest creations. But anyway, back to the fair. I LOVE the exhibits. The canned food, the jellies, the quilts, the knitted items, and they really do still show and award ribbons for livestock. It is amazing how many people still come and bring their prized goat, cow, horse and all the other things. Beany liked it, he was amazed at the rides and his Poppy won a Polar Bear for him. A great time was had by all!

Raising kids is a tough job, but probably the most rewarding job that a woman can have. Even though we had alot of tough times, we had more good times, and I think that my children grew to be fine husbands and fathers. I am so thankful for all the blessings that my children have been for me. I feel that the time passed so quickly, that I didn't have a chance to enjoy the sweetness of being a Mom. I have discovered that I really miss those days of loud noises, messy rooms, and bickering children. Wish I could go back,,,,just for a little while.
