PR

Today was blessedly rainy (or are those tears of gratitude on the previously-parched lawn?), and painting posters for the girls' pending Kool-aid stand out on the porch was perfect.

Our little PA town hosts a Corn Festival (crafts galore & 35,000 visitors with good weather) on the last Saturday of August. The second day in our new home, we woke up at 4 am to the gentle but unfamiliar noises of hundreds of white tents being set up on the street outside our house (we live on the central street in town). Last year the girls threw together a Kool-aid stand and, to their great delight, netted $116 in 2 hours. Of course, their cutie-pie helpers from last year were ready to be included, and came to help. Oh, yes: this year, plans are big...
