Long time, no see!
We've been on the road since October 8th, with no internet at most of the places we've stayed. This week we're in Colorado with family --- and they have wifi!
So while I have a chance, let's get caught up on Project 365...
The first week of October found us (mostly) in Jonesville. Gorgeous weather, beautiful fall colors every where you looked...
Y'all might recall the cottage in Ludington; here's the lovely couple who shared it with us:
Ivan was able to connect with an old friend and spent a day hanging out with him.
Saturday, October 8th we headed to Indiana. Met up with our son in South Bend and while I did some shopping, Ivan and Jon toured the Studebaker Museum and then went by Jon's office:
Carriage House Dining Room & Gardens, which is housed in an old church. Beautiful building and very good food made for a memorable date night.
We were in Indiana for a missions conference at Pleasant View Bible Church. What a treat! They started with a parade of flags, carried by the junior high kids, and then arranged around the platform:
That Tuesday we had "off" with no activities associated with the conference so our kids and their spouses all took the day off so we could hang out. What a precious time!
The second week of October is a sort of anniversary for us; we started dating on October 13th. Knowing it was supposed to rain and be really windy that day, we decided to "celebrate" a day early and recreated our first date -- a walk around Winona Lake, Indiana. Along the way we saw this adorable turquoise bike:
Friday PVBC had scheduled a bonfire but just as they got the fires going, the rain started! Here are the last of the folks making a run for the barns:
I finally finished binding Kyle and Tina's double lap quilt that I'd promised them last year.
The missions conference ended with an international banquet on Sunday the 15th. We sat with old friends from our college days. Here they are with two of their grandchildren:
Back soon with parts 2 and 3...
