30 Sep 2012 – Happy Mid-Autumn/Moon Festival

The week passed by quickly with the 5 grandchildren. Amazing to see how L&J handle these adorable munchkins! Katy, Ellie & John are in school Mon-Fri, Sophie has nursery 3 days a week and James has baby care 1 day a week. Linn even manages time for the gym (with child-care) twice a week. Quite a bit to juggle with 5 kids ranging from ages 1-10!

Sooo overwhelmed just observing that it took a week to post this 🙂

Sat & Sun: app 4hrs drive, 202mi 325km north-west of CAE is Banner Elk NC. This is where L&J have a condo in Sugar Mt/NC and this is also near where classes on the AT were held 7yrs ago… good memories!

Rained on Sat evening, but the Mid-Autumn festival continued. The grandchildren enjoyed the lanterns and the mooncakes, tkx to cousin Yun! A beautiful Sun sunrise and a lovely visit from fellow AT hiker Glenda/Hi Hills & Franklin. Sections of the Mountains-to Sea Trail/NC will be in the schedule from 7-10 Oct. Looking forward…

Problems with uploading pix which will be updated when the support group from wordpress are able to explain what is happening!!

1 Oct: problem solved tkx to wordpress support! But Sophie fell in nursery school and needed stitches… ouch ouch ouch 🙁

At the end of the day, the most overwhelming key to a child’s success is the positive involvement of parents – Jane D Hull
