MEA -- Many Extraordinary Adventures

As a student, I really didn't know that teachers love MEA even more than kids do. But it's true. This year, with the stress my job puts me under, MEA was one of the best weekends I've had in quite some time. Joey, Natalie, Henry and I headed to the cabin after a lazy Thursday morning. Joey raked all the leaves into a leaf pile big enough to bury anyone at the cabin, and we enjoyed 65-degree weather on Friday. We came home Saturday afternoon and spent Sunday at the Shaw's Pumpkin Carving party. So much relaxing, so much progress on my crossword puzzle skills, and much needed time spent with my little family. My heart is awaiting Thanksgiving break!

Fall Fishing Wonders

We made it up to the cabin with both sets of grandparents this weekend, which was nice for Natalie because she had plenty of playmates! Natalie also showed all the guys up, as Grandpa Kent, Grandpa Craig and Joey spent hours on the lake Saturday afternoon, while she caught 5 fish off the dock, including her first BASS! Joey did manage a 17 1/2 inch bass Sunday morning though, which we put back for next summer when it will be much larger! The leaves were beautiful, and the company was perfect. Back to reality now ...
