Columbus Day

Today is Columbus Day. Miss Lucy is out of school, so we've been having a good time making cookies and hanging out. Where's Mr. Nick? Out being manly:
He and a few friends went out into the mountains today to collect wood for the winter. It involves trucks, chainsaws, and lots of manual labor. They're having a blast.
Miss Lu and I went up for a visit to watch them work after lunch, along with some of the other kids. It was beautiful—warm sun, great woods, and friends!
We watched the dads work ....
... and work ...
... and we even helped out a bit ourselves. Okay, so Miss Lucy and Co. helped out. I sat in a camp chair and enjoyed the view out over town.
