Okay, these are a little out of order. Oh well! Arthur's been a roll recently to restock our firewood for next year and the rest of this year, plus to help out Amos and Silas with wood. It's a good thing he has grandsons and Eli around to help out!!
We went to the North Dakota Home School Convention last week. We mainly went because Priscilla was doing a book booth at the vendor show and thought we should make it a family trip. We had a great time! One night however, we got a room on the way home that was SO cold! Arthur messed a long time with the heater and finally, after we were in bed with our coats on asked for more blankets. The lady came by a little later with some nice warm ones right out of the dryer with an apology. The next morning Miriam tried one more time to get the heat on and just like that it kicked on.
Since we no longer homeschool the workshops just don't hold the interest they used to to Arthur and I, did a bunch of shopping. Arthur attended a bull auction and the steak dinner that went with it but didn't buy any of the $4,000+ bulls. We also checked out the Missouri River and the keelboat replica of Lewis and Clark. I did enjoy the vendor show and came home with way too many books!
One look at the Missouri River and we decided there was no way you were going to skate down that river like our local Warroad River! What a beautiful city Bismark / Mandan is.
Priscilla also did a workshop on self publishing.
Forgive the mess in my living room! These are some trikes we picked up to use at the maze and Arthur, the girls and Eli were testing them out by biking in circles, and down the stairs. The grandkids had fun testing them out too.
I just enjoy this picture with the girls enjoying each others company.
Living up north we don't to a Cracker Barrel very often so we stopped there for supper one night. If I could pick up their store and plop it down at the maze I would. I love that place!
Hope you all have a wonderful week! Don't forget to pray for our country!
