We have two October birthdays, our youngest and oldest grandchildren, only three days apart.
The family celebrations were a week apart.
We were headed to Grand Rapids to pick up the bronze Mike entered in Art Prize.
The Stevens, friends who used to live in Upland, offered us wonderful hospitality.
Skye and his friend cut and stacked wood every evening for two or three hours.
Mike takes care of his bees faithfully. He's begun to winterize the hives.
The robotics team responsibilities have only increased with the planned move, but Michael finds great enjoyment working with these young folk. Two recent graduates came back for a visit.
The weather has been unusually mild, but I thought it best to bring the plants in before the cold sets in.
In the meantime, the little guys find ways to entertain themselves.
While in Muncie, we stopped in to see the progress at MadJax, the soon-to-be new home of Team 1720, the PhyXTGears.
I was so impressed realizing that Michael master minded the whole design.
It is going to be a very spacious and adequate shop.

Speaking of Kayla, we celebrated her 25th birthday this last Sunday, but I'll save those photos for next week.
