Summer wrap up part 1

Apparently our summer got out of control this year and blogging was not a top priority, but I will at least try to sum up our summer a bit. We started with Weird Animals VBS at our church. Robert was old enough to be a helper for the first time and Garrett and Haylee(my niece) both got to attend. We had about 87 youth attending throughout the week and had a great time. Garrett and McKenna sang a duet for the closing program- I was so proud!

Part way through that week, Robert and Andrew (nephew) packed up and was off to 4-H Camp. Sounds like they had a good time with 4-H'ers from around the Region.

 Everyone was home for a few days and then off to Livestock Camp. I was a chaperone so Garrett got to attend camp too. He was very excited about that!

At the end of June, we said goodbye to Leroy(Andrew and Haylee's great grandpa). This was difficult for all as he influenced the kids and picked on all of them. This happened while Robert was at Boy Scout Camp, but we made arrangements.  Robert was "tapped" for the Order of the Arrow at camp. We were able to attend that ceremony- it was pretty cool!

Garrett turned 8 at the end of June which seems hard to believe that he is now old enough to officially be in 4-H(he can hardly wait!) The following weekend we had a party for Haylee's birthday, to which she feel asleep to her private fireworks this year.

We spent the 4th of July weekend painting the barn at Gary's folks place to prepare for their move this fall.

Then off to Cub Scout Day Camp for a week and yes I was a chaperone there too! We had a good group of scouts with us and they did very well with BB's and archery, crafts and nature.

Robert was back to Custaloga Town in July for his Order of the Arrow Ordeal. He passed and was brought into the Langundowi Lodge #46.

And that brought us to fair preparations and the Venango County Fair Which will receive it's own post or two
