The school will have Friday and Monday off for a mid-winter break. Today is Valentine’s Day so the elementary classes are having their party. Last night Joseph 10, Lovina, 8, and Kevin, 7 signed all their cards to their classmates. This is Joseph’s last year in elementary school so this is his last Valentine’s party.
We headed out for the two-hour trip to Berne, Indiana on Saturday at around 7:15 a.m. We had set our hired van driver to be here around 6:30 a.m. He got out of his van and somehow left his keys locked inside. His son brought a spare pair and we were on our way 45 minutes later. Nine out of the 12 siblings were at Joe’s sister's house for the late family Christmas gathering. There was more than enough food for the 10:30 a.m. carry-in brunch. Snacks were served later on in the day. After we left the gathering on Saturday we drove in to the place we used to live before we moved to Michigan almost nine years ago.
