We all get it sometime and for me this summer has been hard to blog. We are doing plenty of things and staying busy but I think because it is such familiar surroundings I just can’t get up for writing the blog. The last week we were at Squaw Creek campground it was finally dry enough to take a hike. It has a lot of wet lands so this spring the trails were very wet and so no hikes. The trails here are beautiful so it was nice to get out. We also had a group of visitors, in the form of native wildlife close to our site. Thought I’d share a few photos from that.

We are getting all our doctor, dentist and eye appointments in, since we don’t know when we will get back this way. I am having a little trouble with the transition from far to near so gave in and got a pair of progressive lens glasses. I had lasix surgery done over 15 years ago to correct a severe nearsidedness so I hated to think of going back to glasses but at least now I don’t have to wear coke bottle lenses and can have my pick of frames. I don’t need them for most things but there are times I know I will use them, particularly when we work at Amazon this winter.
We are also getting ready to move Gabe and Melissa to their new home. Rented a trailer today for that week. We may have to make multiple trips to get all there stuff there. Gabe has a lot of furniture he inherited from us when we liquidated the house. Mitch has some too but knowing he may be in apartments for awhile he didn’t want as much. Even in Cedar Rapids Gabe lived in a good size house that he rented with friends. Mitch is going to stay in that house until he finds a job. Luckily Gabe’s landlord really likes him and approved the situation without making him sign a formal lease. It let’s him go month to month until he is ready for a move to where ever.

So life is busy. My class is almost 3/4 done. I have a weekend of grading papers and case studies. As much as I like teaching I will be ready to be done when the time comes. So I will sign off for the time being. Maybe something exciting will happen and put me back in the blogging frame of mind, :)
