written 10 ! 23 ! 13 – I’m sorry that I haven’t posted in a while. I was on an Emmaus Walk last weekend. The week before it had been planned out very well so that all of the packing for all of us could be done, we would have time to eat dinner together and do all of our family activities. It didn’t work out. Everything went wrong. And the car broke down. Car engines really do smoke. Not to worry…the car got fixed and we all got packed. The kids went to grandmas for the weekend. The Emmaus Walk went well. I saw a lot of old friends and made a lot of new ones.
We are now settling back into our daily lives. One of our cats got out this morning. We have inside cats, but they do have claws. She was out all day. We found her outside under the deck when we got home. When we were getting her the second cat got out. This is the first time that these cats have been outside. Our last cat hated being outside, when the door opened he ran to the middle of the room. It was nice to know that he was always safe. These two cats are curious and is is difficult in the morning when we turn off the lights to leave so the house is dark and it is dark outside, we can’t tell if a cat has gone outside. Both of the cats are back in the house. It was a chilly day for the cat to be outside.
Beth has decided to be candy corn for Halloween. We found the white and orange duct tape at the first store, but it took about three more stops to find the yellow duct tape. It will be interesting to see how this costume turns out. She would have been warmer if she had chosen to go as Captain Fluffy, but it is her choice.
written 9 ! 8 ! 13 – Beth had a car show to go to for her school today. I am not a car person, but it is cool to see all of the cars. Her school is displaying their go carts, making buttons and they have the remote control robots. This show goes from eleven to five.
Beth and I set our goals for this year. She wants to get good grades and I am going to find a lot of cultural events for us to go to. We need a goal to keep us motivated. I get most of my ideas from the local newspapers that are outside of the library.
School has started. It was so amazing how we jumped back into the routine. We are packing lunches and doing homework . Years ago it took us a lot longer to settle in.
Beth has bow in her hair that is made out of duct tape. I don’t understand the joy that this generation is getting out of duct tape. She also has a duct tape bill fold. One of Maggie’s friends made her Halloween costume out of duct tape.
Here are some pictures from the antique car show. We didn’t make it to the whole show. We spent most of the day with Beth’s school at their booth. Enjoy the pictures!
