Hello from Naomi! Today we went on a "shopping trip" to Thief River Falls, something we don't do very often - we only had one thing really we wanted to buy - a dress for Miriam for her graduation. So Dad dropped Miriam, Mom, and I off at a clothes store while he went to some hardware store or something. We had a lot of fun :) She tried on half-a-dozen, but we pretty much agreed on the same one - then we went to another store and found another one that was really pretty, so we got two! But one was half-off and the other was second-hand so we felt like we got good deals and can you really ever have too many pretty clothes? (one is brown and aqua and the other is black)
On the way home, we stopped at a gun show - in case you've never been to one (I hadn't), it really isn't a gathering of militant terrorists or mass murderers! Pretty much everyone was normal looking and in addition to guns, there were also tables selling cabin-style decorations, baking mixes, random "stuff" - and coins. What coins have to do with guns I haven't figured out yet...but we got to see a real $5oo bill (with William McKinnly on it) and a $1000 bill (with Grover Cleveland). Oh yes, and the gun show was held in a public school. So anyway, it was sort of interesting.
While we were gone, Hosanna happened to see this butterfly/moth in our small entryway - it still looks like Christmas outside, so we don't know where it came from...
