Going Back To China.

On our way to Seattle today...

...past Mount Rainier.

Dennis had ahis 8th birthday party last night and we all enjoyed the party.

James was the cook. Yum.

The pirate treasure cake was awesome, arrugh.

We are on our way...BACK.

We are now in Seattle at the airport, on our way back to China for one more School year teaching English. We depart on a 12 hour flight at 9:00 pm tonight. We will stay overnight in Beijing and then fly (2 hours) to Jinan on Saturday morning. We should be at our apartment there by noon Saturday.

Winterizing the Homestead

Preparing for Winter.

Jay is in the stocks at the Island Park Dinner Theater on a night out with Boston and his Grandma. We have a great meal of Prime rib and all the fixin's and a great comedy play.

Throwing a few horse shoes before we close the Homestead for the winter and until next year...

Because of the expected deep snow (3 - 4 feet), the tables are turned.

Toys, beds and 4 wheelers are stored in our new storage (bully barn) after the gas is drained from the carburators..

Boston's last swim in the ole Swimming Hole with Grandma.

The outdoor kitchen's sun roof is placed vertically for the winter, and overything is covered and tied down...

We put a new little door on the E-wok Village Auxilary kitchen. It is cool now.

Dana decided to make a summer roof over the stage. It is nice and keeps the rain off the stage when grandkids are performing.... What about the audience??? Oh, they are toasty around the camp fire nearby.
