Roller Skating Rookies

We all went roller skating (the kids' first time). Kind of our celebration of Thanksgiving.

Washington Fall

Time and travel goes fast for our family. We will be spending Thanksgiving in Arlington, WA. We are glad that most days while in Washington the sun has poked through at least a few minutes. Snowboarders and skiers are happy about the early snows. It could be a good year for mountain resorts.

Joy and Josiah with 2nd cousin once removed Sarah Elliott (Sarah's mom is Grandma Mathison's 1st cousin).

Our children got a chance to meet some more cousins while we were in Washington and Oregon. We've had opportunities to know close and "distant?" relatives (Are 2nd cousins once removed or 1st cousins twice removed distant?) through the years. We visited with two of Joel's 1st cousins and their spouses and saw my "cousin" and her family. Even got in on a 7 year old's basketball game (June's 2nd cousin, Ethan, son of her 1st cousin once removed Jean Elliott).
