Dear Kids,
          Lots of us were involved in helping Nora and James move to their new home. And what a home it is! You have to see it to believe it. I can only say it’s very elegant. On Friday morning Dad and I took a truckload from the cabin, and we met James at the house. We had a tour first, and then we unloaded boxes into the garage. Then a big truck pulled up to deliver the refrigerator, so we pulled out. We’ll miss having Nora and James and their family close by, but I know they’re happy to finally settle in, after almost a year of moving around.
          So, of course, the cabin is open for weekenders again. Same rules as always: Let me know in advance, so I can put it on the calendar; donate toilet paper or plastic plates or garbage bags, etc., leave everything really clean, and here’s one more thing: if you’re bringing friends, just one family at a time, please. Everybody’s kids are lots bigger than they used to be, including friends’ kids.

I found my missing Dr. Seuss books! They were here at our house, under the bunkbed, back towards the wall. I asked Donna if Anna likes to hide things under beds, and Donna said yes. I know Anna herself likes to hide under beds, because I’ve pulled her out more than once. Anyway, the books are found and the mystery is solved.
          Remember, I’ll be fixing Sunday dinner here on March 2, just two weeks from today. Let me know if you can come. When we get into spring and summer, I’ll probably do some Sunday dinners at the cabin again. Conference weekend, especially. It just wouldn’t be the same at our house.
          I hope you’re all doin’ great and lovin’ it! Mom
