Hawarden show 2017
I then took Ruth up to the hall to drop off all her entries for the show. By the time we left it had gotten so much colder. I wasn't sure it was worth heading up with Asher. Thankfully it only drizzled for a short time and then was mostly dry.
First we went through the school art display (photos in this post) as they were still putting things together for the rides.
When we were facing the other way, watching the planes, she was watching those swings (behind her in this photo) and she kept saying "wow", "wow". It was so cute. I'm glad she enjoyed just watching and didn't have the idea in her head to get on it herself.
Brendon and I then left with the youngest two so that I could put lunch in the oven and get the rice on. Once that was done, I went back up with Hezekiah.
By this point Ruth had gone off with her friends. I wasn't worried as she had her cell phone and I had said we would meet at the car at 12:30. Rachel didn't have her phone, so when the 5 of us were together, we decided to head home a bit early (at about 12:15). Only when we got home did I realize that Ruth wasn't with us. So I got teased a bit and immediately turned around to fetch her. We had only just missed her as she was already at the gate. So if we had been on time, it would have worked out perfectly. :-) Well done Ruth for being so reliable.
We watched the grand parade together and then Ruth had fun collecting lollies in the lolly scramble (that she then gave away).
Then we wandered around and waited for the Youth Challenge. All those photos in their own post here.
All in all a lovely day with lots of fun memories.
