We just returned from 2+ weeks of camping in Winfield-- what a great time we had! But it is good to be home. We didn't have internet access so have not been able to post since we headed out-- at the end of August!

If you've never been to the festival in Winfield, you don't know what you're missing. There is music 24 hours a day and for many folks, it is the best part of their year. I know it is for us. We see so many friends that we only see once a year. We have watched our friends' children grow up there, and now we have our own -- who I might add, is more well known than us, somehow! When we took him around in the stroller we would hear people shout "Hi William!" without saying a word to us.

2 and a half weeks is a long time in the life (and development) of an 18 month old. By the time we left, William was not only saying "bye!" (he has done this for a while now) but he added a "see ya" and followed that with "go!". So his farewell to friends as they were leaving was "bye..see ya..GO!" Yesterday he put his shoes on by himself for the first time ever. The coolest thing was when we finally got home and walked in the door, he was wide-eyed and smiling like.... "I remember this place... sort of!". He was especially excited to see the toys in his room.

It's time for bed so I'll have to continue the update another day........
