It's Been a Long Time

I'm sorry that it has been so long. One of the reasons is a recurrence of my back problems and the inability to sit for very long. This caused a week or so of having to lay down a lot. I will try to catch up on some of the happenings in one little blog.

Back at the beginning of November Rachel ran in the Cross Country State Meet in Lexington, KY. It was a great day, beautiful weather but unfortunately we only took videos that are too large to upload. Rachel did really well and came 70th out of 350 girls. Her tally at the end of the season is one trophy and 4 medals.

Following this we visited Frankfort with some friends. Frankfort is the capital of Kentucky so we went to the capitol building and had a picnic. Even though it was closed Mark managed to get us a short tour.(Picture above)
Fall was beautiful although a lot of leaves were lost early in Hurricane Ike. We had some unusually warm weather in the fall which was very nice.
Fall is also the time for Thanksgiving. I will blog about that later.
It is now winter and we have already had a couple of falls of snow but nothing that stays on the ground. We are hoping for our first white Christmas since being here.
