Well I was going to go off on a highly opinionated topic having to do with why I have so many kids and how much I enjoy being at home with them. Slightly related to what are people thinking when they say some of the crazy things that come out of their mouth, but instead, I'm just going to write about today.
We went to the Farmers Market today, mainly to let the kids play in the fountain, but also to check out the produce that is down there. For those of you who live in town if you do not have the opportunity to do this, you can also purchase items from the same local farmers online. I really wish we could go down there more often, because it's such a cute little market and lots of fun things going on there.
We spent most of the morning at the fountain, while 3 kids played, and 2 kids hung out in the stroller. Russ chatted with a former student, and visited lots of the food vendors on our behalf, and I met another mom of twins and visited with her, and took pictures, and watched a young man make some pottery. I am always fascinated by the whole pottery making process.
We always get homemade lemonade and usually try some of the ethic foods that are cooked there. Today we had filipino street food, i.e. pork and beef kabobs. They were very tasty - the kids ate most of it.
We topped it off today with some homemade peach ice cream. I don't even like peach ice cream, but this was tasty. If this is any indication of the rest of the school year, I think it's going to be a good one!
