Horses and Household Goods


The German-American Volksfest has been on post this past week. It's basically a carnival, with more beer. We went last Sunday. They had tanks sitting out for people to see and some to go inside. So, Ashlyn learned a new word. Every toddler should know tank, though.
Ashlyn really enjoyed looking at the horses. When the big ones walked by, she would step back toward Allen, but wave at the small ponies. We thought it would be a good idea to let her ride one. Um, no. Watching the horses was great, but getting on the back of one, even a pony as tiny as this one, was apparently super scary. So, we gave her ticket to a mom standing near us. We decided not to attempt any other rides, either.


We found out today that our household goods are here. A month early! I was so excited, and we started talking about what day next week would be best to have our stuff delivered. I'm trying to figure out how I'm going to get the entire house painted by Tuesday and all that. Then, Allen calls and says they will bring it next Friday. Then he calls back later and said it will be a week from Tuesday. Though we will still have everything long before the NLT May 31st date, I'm still a little disappointed. Everything is here, but we can't have it. Of course, now I don't have to spend all waking moments (and many when I should probably be sleeping) for the next few days painting. I just want to be settled and feel like we are home.

Congrats on getting your stuff early! Of course now the stress of getting the house ready starts. Good thing you already picked the colors and bought the paint.
