Wow! This past week has been busy! Guess that’s why I’m posting our Monday Rundown post on Tuesday!
First, in case you missed it, I had a new Real Oilfield Wives post go live this past Tuesday about our Oilfield Camper Homeschool. Go check it out if you haven’t already.
On Wednesday the water went out AND the sewer line from the camper broke. Thankfully, the water came back on later the next day. As for the sewer line adventures, I will be posting about that this coming Wednesday. Yes, the sewer line is still a work in progress. Sigh.
Thursday Will and I spent the day enjoying ourselves at the North Dakota state fair with some friends from Kenmare, the Potters. They are a large part of the reason we ended up in North Dakota and I hope to soon interview Mr. Potter for a piece on this blog. Also, I feel
the need to mention that yesterday was Mr. Potter’s birthday and I hope he had a great one!
But I digress, so back to the fair! It was huge! I could have gone several more times and still not seen all there was to see. Will got to ride his first fair rides, first one with me and then one all by himself.
Will and I really enjoyed the Fur Trapper’s Village which reminded me so much of Rendezvous back in Vincennes. Will was enthralled by the blacksmith and it made me want to take up re-enacting again.
I was also quite impressed with the The Conservation and Outdoor Skills Park as well. It was, as far as I could tell, pretty comprehensive and very well presented. Will got to pose with Herbie the Moose and we both really enjoyed checking out the fish tanks in the fishing exhibit.
On Friday Jacob only had a half day at work and our afternoon was spent working on the sewer line. It's turning out to be a much bigger project than we expected.
Saturday we went out to the main office for Jacob’s company, which is a cute little cabin just outside of New Town, to fill out insurance paperwork and had the pleasure of seeing these beauties on a hill next to the cabin.
Sunday was spent having lunch with journalist Blaire Briody who is currently working on a multimedia project titled The Oil Men. It was a fun spending the afternoon with Blaire and her cousin and I hope I was able to help them out with the project a bit. Hopefully, if all works out you will soon be seeing a post here from Blaire about this project.
I think that sums up my week. It was a busy one for sure. Now I’m off to start my day and then we get to go into New Town and pick up our fall homeschool curriculum. I’m so excited about it being here and I can’t wait to share our homeschooling adventures with you! Have a great week!
