Halloween 2010

Charlie is a Stormtrooper, Ethan a rugby player and Christopher a bandit. (Ethan is looks hesitant, don't you think?? - he's grown out of this tradition but dressed up for a party) We went to a neighbourhood party and then did a small amount of trick or treating. In Scotland, you go in the house and the children tell a joke, sing a song or say a poem to entertain the homeowners. Charlie made up a new joke at every house and he had the adults in stitches! Wish I'd had a video camera. Happy Halloween!

Fall Break

We had an unusual fall break this year with everyone going in different directions. Scott was traveling for work, Ethan went to York on a school music tour, Christopher went to Elie in Fife with a friend and Charlie and I held down the fort in Glasgow.

Ethan's music tour included a performance in York Minster. Once in a lifetime! Oh how I wish I was invited to see this.

I have no pictures to make this post more interesting.But everyone had a fantastic time and it was nice to have a break.

Fresh Air

This dear green place is so delightful when the weather is nice. We recently went for a family ride through the forest and boy was it beautiful. The forest service does a great job of maintaining farm tracks for public use. There are countless areas to go for a ride.

Autumn was in the air and even though we were only 45 minutes from home, we might as well have been worlds away.

*This is Scott 2 months post knee surgery. Wahoo!
