Well, it happened! The Chicken Pox finally caught up with the Boardman Bunch. Zach broke out yesterday. Unfortunately, he is the only one so far. This could mean weeks of staggered outbreaks. Help!!!! Obviously, our big plans of going to IHC this week as well as an overnight trip to Tennessee to see Dave's Memaw Brown have been cancelled. Oh well, such is life!
I had a wonderful trip to Louisiana a couple weeks ago. It was nice to be with my parents for the week. June Robinson kept me entertained with several shopping trips.(Or was I entertaining her?) It was so nice to be with my almost-sisters, Esther Pannebaker and Anna Dodd. I lived with them during my college days and made some memories that will never be forgotten. The boys sure enjoyed getting in on the "real school" atmosphere. Hopefully, they did well on their SAT's. Thank you Jenny for taking good care of them!
Saturday was Youth Day for turkey season. All the boys went this year. This was Caleb's first time. He told Ben that he was more excited about meeting Bill and Eddie(the old country guys that own the land) than actually shooting a turkey. Somehow, he ended up wearing Zach's camo pants-sz 12-and he couldn't take a step without them dropping to his knees. The other bummer was that he locked Dave's keys in the truck. I had to make a trip to the country to bail them out. They were a sorry-looking bunch of hunters. And, no, they did not get a turkey!
