We had a few days off for Thanksgiving, and it was a welcomed break. We hosted Thanksgiving here for about 8 people - - they arrived around 1 pm and left around 9 pm (!) But that was because we were all having a good time. We had turkey and then turkey again about 6 pm, and of course lots of drinks. The next day we met up with the Klemme's for a small hike to the Toadstools. The boys ran the entire way, which is a marked change from former years when they complained it was too far. We're back into a regular routine of school and life....for now.
