STAR actually went ok. Noah brought a friend along and the weather was so nice that we all wandered the empty fields behind the barn. Afterward I even braved the grocery store because after feeding the entire neighborhood for three days our cupboards were barren. Again, except for the stunned looks on the grocery employees, the event was as calm as could be expected. We came home and the children ate quickly and raced back outside. Amy and I tried to play outside but the mosquitos are already getting unpleasant. Inside for a quick blog before I tackle the dinner dishes.
