It is definately fall heading into winter. The fireweed is dead and the leaves on the trees are well on their way to yellow. We are enjoying a few rain free days but rain or snow is in the forcast. Jon went hunting and got a black bear. We have been having bear meat which is surprisingly good. We are lucky the bear had been eating berries. Jon posted the story on our new website: link. I have started take a couple graduate level marine science classes which should prove challenging to say the least. The kids are both doing great. Marinas language is great and Nathan’s computer skills are getting scary. Well, I can’t beleive I actually got to write this much while the kids are in the same room. I had better post this while my luck holds. Love to all.
