Exciting Week

This past week was the week of the SEMO (Southeast Missouri) District Fair. In Cape Girardeau the SEMO Fair is a BIG deal. The kids from the congregation showed animals and other various 4-H projects. This is the first time that Nate and I have experienced the livestock showing and a horse show. We also got to see two concerts at the fair. We saw Bryan White which is famous for his song he sang with Shania Twain in the 90's, "From this Moment". We also saw the John D. Hale Band which is a local band. We had the chance to experience a deep fried Snickers bar. It was delicious and like all good foods, horribly bad for you. It's okay though because the fair is only once a year. All in all, the SEMO District Fair was a success with the Wollenbergs, fun and fellowship with a lot of great people.

The biggest part of my week was that, Sara, a wonderful woman from our congregation took me with her to the Cardinals game on Monday night. She works for Drury Hotels so we got to sit in the corporate seats, five rows behind home plate. It was awesome! When the ump and Yadier Molina (Cardinals catcher)were arguing I could read their lips. Fredbird also ended up coming to our section, sitting down next to people and messing with them. It was amazing! Sara and I had a great time!

Other exciting things that happened this week include me getting my first substitute job! I subbed at Jackson High School for a para-professional in the Special Ed department. I was very happy to get some work. I also ordered a sewing machine!!! I got a brother CS 6000i. Isn't it pretty?

I'm so excited to get it! I have used sewing machines a few times before but never on my own. We'll see how I do!

Nate is excited that football has started. He is keeping up with his and my fantasy teams. I don't pay as much to my teams as I should. He, of course, has not forgotten about baseball and his first place Yankees.

Anyway, all is good in Cape. God is good!
