We were late celebrating Kayla's ___ (9+8+1+9) birthday.
She asked for a family favorite, a fondue meal. We always enjoy the chaotic family togetherness.

I love watching the young ones play together.
All week, Kayla's dance groups wore their Halloween costume to class (except our older women's tap group!).

Tuesday was Pixel's final journey back to Madjax for its retirement to the robot museum.
Michael was grateful for the good weather to continue cutting wood and preparing the bee hives for winter.

We had two delightful young visitors in Art Club this week--members' grands on fall break.
Family members pumpkin-fun appeared throughout the week on Facebook.

Finally, Saturday, we had a brief but wonderful reunion with friends from long ago. Almost every year, Fred and Karen Perry drive through between visits to family in Bloomington and Michigan. Sometimes they are able to stop. So many stories to share, it would take an eternity to tell.
This time Bob Craton (another OMer who lives here) was able to join us as well.
Any exciting encounters in your week?
