Dear Mother & Daddy,
"We got home Tues. afternoon but we've worked so hard since then that it seems we've been home a month.
Last Sunday was a marvelous day & we planned to leave camp Tuesday because of Labor Day traffic. It was sprinkling before we got up Monday & was really raining before we could finish breakfast.

The rain kept coming & when we went back to the park after lunch there were just a few campers left. The park & little towns were deserted. People just went home when the rain kept up so we loaded our car & left about 5:00 that afternoon.
There was very little traffic so we drove to Sheboygan & stayed in a nice motel. Ann wanted to stop in Chicago but we decided to come on home & got here mid-afternoon. We've been putting things away & catching up on washing, etc. ever since.
The phone has rung constantly & the kids have been in & out. Ann is restless & we'll be glad when school really gets going. B went back to work yesterday afternoon. It will be day & night for awhile. Students are moving into the dorms today.
I still have three pears & a lot of apples left. The pears finally got ripe & were pretty good in a fruit salad. The apples have kept fine & the potatoes, too, of course.
It is almost noon & I'll have to get some lunch. I planned to iron some more this morning--have been doing a little every chance I get--but the kids & doorbell keep interfering so bye for now."
Lots of love,
