It's been a great and busy year plus since we've posted. The kids are growing up so fast. Caleb is now 4 and a half and Amber is already 2 and a half. Caleb started a great preschool this week and is now attending school a half a day, every day. He was so excited to attend school. Amber, however was the one crying on Caleb's 1st day of school. She wanted to go to school too. I mean, she balled her eyes out saying, "I want to go to school, I want to go to school". It was so sad. Day #2 wasn't much better, another balling event.
Other than that, we purchased a very beautiful piece of property west of White Cloud, MI on the White River. It's about 3.5 acres of wooded property with 229' of frontage on the river. Rod and his dad have been busy cutting tons and tons of trees, clearing a large area for our future cabin down by the river and getting a driveway cut in. They still have a long ways to go, but it's gaining. Our "hope" is to build a cabin (small home) on it sometime in 2015. After it's complete, it'll be a 3 bedroom, 2 bath cabin with a loft overlooking the greatroom below. We are planning on putting it on a rental program throughout the year for families looking for some very private Rest and Relaxation. The river is great for trout fishing and canoeing/kayaking. We'll keep you posted on our progress.
Beth is still a "stay at home mom" and definately has her hands full. Whew!!! That's a job and a half or MORE! Rod is still flying for Universal Forest Products. He's flying pretty steady. Other than that, things are about the same. Just busy running after the kiddos.

That looks really nice boys! I'll just sit here in the yard and supervise while you two finish the snowman.

Caleb really got into trick or treating this year. He was dressed as a Scare Crow. This costume was the coolest thing. He got so many compliments on how cute he looked in it.
To top off halloween night, we went trick or treating in Greenville. The city has three parks that it burns a big bon-fire and gives out free apple cider and donuts to anyone who stops by. They also have a costume contest. Amber and Caleb both entered into the 0-5 yr. age group and out of all the kids who entered, Caleb got 1st place and Amber got 2nd place. The got their pictures taken and they asked us for the correct spelling of their names.....we think they might put the photos in the local newspaper. They each got a ribbon and a candy bar. Take a look at their photos and you'll see how cute they were.

I took this photo of a man fishing on the river one cool morning.
A "Watch for Moose" sign that was along the road right by our Campground. Didn't see any though.
