Saying Goodbye…

2 Oct
Ella enjoyed her last days at “Little Dippers Learning Center” in 2008.
Here is Ella (Snow White) with her friends Iraida and Shae (Dorthy):
Maiya cut her first tooth this past week, and now pulls herself to a standing position on everything she can get her hands on!

Meanwhile, we slaved away at the store.
We got 3/4 of the way through doing a full inventory of our store, when I realized that I hadn’t done it correctly in the computer system. We had to start all over (For anyone that’s worked retail before…that BITES). It was a long day, and needless to say, we left a day (or two) later than we had originally hoped! We were able to enjoy a few late September “warm” days in the mid-60’s! What a treat!

Our store is on the right (with the yellow sign that says “North Star Treasures”):
Taking care of business before locking up the doors for the winter:

After several days, and luckily no tears, we finally got out of town on Wednesday just after noon.
Ella took some photos from the rear seat…

And I took a few photos from the front seat. I love the beauty of this land…
We are now in Watson lake, Yukon for the night. The weather has been fairly clear (by “clear” I mean not SNOWING or RAINING). We still haven’t seen blue skies, and are very excited to see the skies clear up in the next few days! Wohooo!!

    Enjoy the ride! Where are you “wintering” this year. I hear Las Vegas is nice…

    So where are you heading for the winter 🙂 Are you stopping by our area at all???

    Thanks for your email. I'll have to check out the book.

    Elisabeth has been on the ketogenic diet for the past 6 weeks. It is a special diet (high fat, low carb) that is highly successful in controling epilepsy. Unfortunately it didn't work for Elisabeth. We were hoping it would because it was so much better than always pumping her with drugs….oh well…..back to the meds it is. We HAVE to find a solution, and now. These spasms that she is having are literally ruining her brain.

    OK, enough about me and mine.

    One more quick comment…I can't believe how big and grown up Maiya is already!!!! I was still imagining her as an infant. She stands up! Wow!

    “she'll be comin' around the mountain when she comes!” – came to mind as I looked at your footsie photo! Drive safely!
