We stumbled upon Mr. and Mrs. Beaver after seeing their gnawed tree from the road that crosses the creek they are inhabiting.
Each time we cross the bridge, the dam grows more and more.
Slides all along the creek and beaver prints were to be found.
There are many large trees that are chewed upon and one that has been felled and forms a bridge across the creek.

They couldn't resist capturing a lovely picture of our state capital building brightly illuminated at night.
After more travelling and wonderful conversations, they arrived in Chicago for the evening of encouragement and networking provided by ICHE. It was great to be able to hear Kevin Swanson speak of generational home education.
They relished in renewing old acquaintances as well as making new ones, and enjoyed an inspiring evening.
Throughout the course of the trip, they were able to watch the DVD series "Entrepreneurial Bootcamp for Christian Families" by Vision Forum. It was a very challenging and encouraging set and we are pleased we could afford them the time away to strengthen their relationship and thus our family.

Once that was cleaned up, we proceeded with removing the trusses and walls.
Several hard days of work can look so easy in photos. :)

And every time that we pull that game from our shelves and play it, it reminds us. It reminds us to save, it reminds us to hope, it reminds us to work hard. It also reminds us that the economy was quite different in the 1970's than it is today! And it fills our family with good memories as we spend family time together reminiscing and telling the pieces of our history that are important to knitting a family close together.

The scenery was beautiful and it afforded several pictures as well.
