Never catch snowflakes with your tongue...

...until all the birds have gone south for the winter.

As everyone probably already got the memo that it snowed in Anchorage and Wasilla, I won't rub it in that we are leaving for Hawaii this Saturday! We are all excited and busy making preperations. Alaeric is going to have a blog and as an assignment for school he is going to blog about his Hawaii adventures. Check his blog out here. Niall is up to his ear-balls in algebra, he has to finish this chapter so he can take the test before the quarter ends.

This year was kind of iffy for berries and stuff, we did not get any raspberries but we got rhubarb, crab apples and a fair abount of booberries (it's October so they are booberries! November they will revert to blueberries.) Enough to make 45 jars of jellies and jam. Considering the season I think that is respectable. I am really bummed about the raspberries so I may have to buy some to make jam because I use the raspberry jam in recipes.

And now for something completely different....

The UAA "A Cappella Festivella 15" is going to be this Thursday (October 19th). One of the groups is named Inpulse and is awesome, here is one of their songs. If you can make it you should, the groups are always great and it is a lot of fun for the whole family.

With that said, I need to get back to the algebra enforcement task force.
