Hope everyone is well.
Not too much has happened in the last few months. We had a quiet Easter at home. Kyle had a good time playing little league once again. In mid-April, we headed off to spend a few hours at the Edison National Historic Site in West Orange. I had been a couple of years ago (on a Veteran’s Day I had off but Suzanne and Kyle didn’t). We also have our National Parks pass from our trip out west last summer, so it was free. We had a very nice time. Kyle enjoyed it and got another Junior Ranger badge.
We joined a community supported agriculture (CSA) farm. (A CSA is a program where ones pays a fee for a share. Then, each week, you get a delivery of produce from the farm.) It’s interesting in that each week we get something new, perhaps something that we wouldn’t normally buy. So far, I have eating more greens that I probably have in the rest of my life combined. In early June, they had a potluck at the farm (out in Andover, NJ, about an hour from our house). It was nice to meet some new people, to meet the farmer who would be growing our food, and see his fields. There was a bunch of stuff still in the field that was harvested and delivered to us just a few days later.
The next week, we went with Kyle’s Cub Scout pack their semi-annual camping trip. In the fall, it was a district-wide camporee. This time, it was just his pack. We headed down to Allaire State Park, about an hour away, and had a nice time. In July, Jack and Mary Lou came up for over a week and a half starting just before the fourth, which was nice for us and Kyle. (Suzanne had to be in RI for the next week.)
No big plans for the rest of the summer. We’ll probably spend a few days here and there while Kyle is between camp and school. Of course, we heading to Disney World in October which should be a great, especially as we’re going to be there with my brother Allan and my mom.
I have finally managed to put some more photos of Kyle:
