A day on the river

John had an opportunity (with some of his class) to join a group paddling down the Mississippi. The group has been on the river for nearly a month, even paddling on the days we had snow. The group has invited schools to join them for parts of the trip. Wayne was able to take the day off to go with John. They started in Monticello and ended in Dayton (a river trip our kids paddle often in the summer), stopping in Otsego for lunch and lessons. The day started off with sprinkles, but got better as the day went on.  Like Steven said, "why can't all the field trips be like this?"

How fun! And how fun that Wayne was able to go with!

thanks again for the pasta!

Your welcome! And thank you for letting Brian camp out there off and on for these couple weeks.

Not sure if the rest of you know, but Brian has packed his bags and is moving back from Rochester. He decided not to go back to school there in the fall and therefore, gave his notice at Discount as well. He is staying at Jen's when he is on a couple days in a row until he finishes the time of his notice. It is nice to have him home :)

Yes, it isn't so often that Wayne can be in town for these kinds of things, so it is extra special when he is.

Is Brian going to continue school elsewhere?
