Good day friends- Hello there! Is everyone as cold as I am? brrr what has happened to the weather? The rain was sure cold on Sunday too! I am glad it waited until after we started breaking down the exhibit at the fair.

Mikhaila is now a U of M-Duluth Bulldog! We went up and got her registered at the University last week. That is a large school! She now has her classes, dorm room and her room mate.We still need to get books and pack but things are moving along nice.It will be strange not to have her at the house! Any other empty nesters out there? How are you dealing with your kids going off to start their future and accomplish their dreams? Good luck to all the Hayward and Spooner graduates that are going on to school or working! I hope this is a great time in your life!
