Demo Derby Weekend

Good Monday morning!  Sweet corn's ready!!!  My aunt sent an email yesterday letting us know it was ready to be picked!  I can’t wait!  I love freezing sweet corn.  My favorite part is when you cut the corn off the cob, you get these 2-4” strips of corn.  I try to keep them in tact and pick them up and devour them!  Tastes sooo good!  Freezing corn is on my agenda for the week!
Friday night we went to our county fair’s demo derby.  If you’ve never been to a demo derby you are missing out!  Ha ha!  It’s so trashy, I love it!  Basically it’s a bunch of cars (or trucks, depending on the class) that get put together in a ‘pen’. They all get lined up, half on one side, the other half on the other side with their tails facing each other.  Then it’s go time!  They back up into each other, then spin around and go full force at each other.  It’s crazy!  Sometimes they get hung up on the cement blocks that form the outside of the ring.  Sometimes their transmission blows.  Friday night, one guy’s truck came apart from his entire front axel!!!  Yea, he wasn’t going anywhere! Ha ha!  So crazy and fun.  I love going to it every year. 
The boys finished their swim lessons.  They both went off the diving board!!!  I couldn’t believe it!  They loved it, had so much fun.  They did have their instructor there to catch them and help them to the side so no doing it again until next year because I can’t tread water and catch them, too.   I am so proud of them, they both took off this past week!  Going to the pool is going to be so much more fun now knowing I don’t have to worry quite as much about them.
Vacation Bible School started last night for Aiden.  He has it every night through Thursday.  I hope he has fun going.  Our evenings will feel weird not having him here with us.
Have a great week!
