(Scott AFB, IL) Hi 75 Lo 46 -- Yesterday (Saturday) was spent in the kitchen most of the day. I offered to make dinner for the family so I made the chicken and dumplings that I always make when we visit our other son, Rick. Angie and the grand boys had never had them. I cooked the chicken at home, then at 4:00 we went to Frank's and I finished the meal there. Along with the chicken and dumplings we also had salad, corn, and some cooked apples for dessert. They all loved it, I could tell because they all had seconds.
After dinner we brought the boys back with us to spend the night with us in the RV. It will probably be our last time having them overnight. They're growing up to be fine young men, and spending a night with grandma and grandpa probably won't be high on their list of things to do. Kyle will be driving the next time we see him and Kendall will be 13. It’s been fun watching them grow up.
Kendall, Jim and Kyle. The boys are wrapped in the afghans that I made for them.
This morning (Sunday) we were up early to get the boys home to get ready for church. After church we all went to lunch, then we came we came back home for awhile before going to Kendall’s football game later in the afternoon. The game was at the high school which is just one block from their house.
Kendall is #55
We watched the game (the Little Panthers lost), then had a pizza and came home.
Since we're leaving tomorrow here's a review of the Scott AFB Famcamp. The park is just eight miles from the family and we really like staying here, but with no sewer hookup we have to hitch up and move to the dump station to dump our tanks if we stay more than a week or so.
There are several pavilions on the small lake, which are busy most Fridays with military unit picnics.
One section of the famcamp is in the open with no trees (the one we try to get).
And the other (older) section is very wooded.
There’s three lakes nearby.
Fall is here.
It’s going to be in the 30’s next week. We’re glad we’ll be on our way tomorrow morning. Since tomorrow is a travel day our next blog will be in two days.
