This past week was most eventful in a delightful way. As usual, we went to the farm market on Saturday, but this time our friend Connie, who sells Avon, needed someone to watch her table and she asked Emily to do so. You have never seen a prouder child of nine. The weather was semi-rainy and she only mad two sales, but she counted change, thanked customers, and watched the table like a real pro!
Then on Sunday afternoon, we attended a Renaissance fair. We saw scantily dressed wenches, richly dressed Lords and Ladies, a jousting tournament, showmen of every kind, and a blacksmith, watched
two performances by the Guinness world record holders, the fabulous Kamikaze Fireflies, and Emily rode a horse. We also celebrated the Queens birthday, and she even photo bombed a picture where Emily was posing with some regency gents!

Emily loves several mystery series for eight to twelve year olds, but the Cam Jansen mysteries are some of her favorites. So if you have a mystery lover of your own why not check out this wonderful series. And if you have a yen for a little bit of history, head on over to Waynesville, Ohio for the Ohio Renaissance Festival. You will be glad you did!
Well, that about wraps it up for this week. Join me next week for another exciting episode, same crazy time, same crazy channel. And feel free to drop by my personal website, Fun With Aileen, any day of the week for even more on reading, writing, my very own early grade chapter book, Fern Valley, and my sequel, Return To Fern Valley! I'm also on twitter @AileenWStewart if you want an extremely brief glimpse into my days.
