243: Plains Fair
I took the younger kids to the fair. I was feeling sort of irresponsible about it since I don't even have money for school clothes or new backpacks or even groceries. I got paid for a photo job and then instead of getting any of those things I spent the whole check on an evening at the fair. I don't even like the fair, but my kids do and it seemed a good end-of-summer evening since a bunch of their friends and cousins were also going.
Of course I did ask the kids if they'd rather have groceries or go to the fair and they voted for the fair. They're all over age five now. I'm sure that's old enough to make decisions like this, so I probably shouldn't feel bad about it.
