I can already tell this Fall is going to be a blur. Friday I went to The Great Allentown Fair to see Sugarland with one of the other moms from daycare and a friend of hers. The concert was great but I think they should consider alternate adjectives for the fair itself. This is the second year in a row I’ve gone out there for a concert. The grandstand is old and steep and not at all ventilated. Because the fairgrounds is in the middle of Allentown they have to be off stage by 10:30, and don’t get me started on the nightmare that is parking. But I digress.
Saturday we loaded up and headed to Dagsborough, Delaware to a housewarming party for our friends R&B, stopping in Newark to pick up other friends for the ride down. It was nice to see people. As you can see in photos, Kate and I ended up in the pool; she’s such a water bug.
Work is obviously busy too, but I love the energy at the start of a new term. I’m actually tying this on my iPad sitting in a bus headed in to NYC for a couple of days. I was here two weekends ago and hurricane Irene ruined the last two days of my Final Cut Pro training so I’m headed back to finish. Just in time too since I have a class to assist next Tuesday.
Being gone isn’t SO bad; Kate gets some extra daddy time in and Kelvin is thankful I’m gone during the week and not on the weekend so daycare can break up the day. She’s still very chill for a toddler, but she’s cutting two more teeth (bringing the current count of pearly whites to 14 for those of you keeping track). And she’s at the crawl/walk stage doing the mode of transport she thinks will be faster in a given situation. Smart girl.
