Columbus Day Weekend

Welcoming the fall colors.

The College Boys: Isaac and Nate.

It was a gorgeous and full Columbus Day weekend. Isaac and Nate arrived home on Friday and all eight of us went to cheer for my high school students in their attempt to win the homecoming football game.

Bright and early Sunday morning we took our Christmas card picture in the dewy pasture. We all attended Clintondale Friends Church before Isaac and Nathaniel departed back to college. Hannah, Rebecca, Rita and I left for the Schwangunks to hike around Lake Minnewaska.

On Monday, Mom, Dad and I returned with Rita to New York City. I caught up briefly with a friend from college while walking around Central Park. Mom, Dad and I then attended the 20th annual Erasmus lecture where Dr. Philip Jenkins (UPenn) addressed a crowded group at the Union League Club.
