October 27, 1963 Homecoming and Hamburgers, Track and Teeth, Pumpkins, Leaves, Nuts, Etc.

Dear Mother & Daddy,

"No one is up yet but I want to mail this on the way to church.  This weekend was homecoming & every minute has been full.  The weather was beautiful & warm.  There has never been such a warm homecoming day in all the years we've been here.  Last year it poured rain all day.  The kids each had a friend spend the day with them so we had hamburgers for lunch.

The Index. ISNU Yearbook

I was so glad to get your card & glad Nobel is home.  Will he have to stop work for awhile?  I can't see what an operation could do for an infection.

Bob is still enjoying the driver's training.  The class is small so he was the only one in a car with a student teacher the other day & got to drive a whole period.  He is counting the days till his birthday. They have a gravel track on school property where they practice and he had done that a few times & then got to go out onto the streets.  His grades for the first 6 weeks of school were real good.  He made 4 A's & 2 B's.

Ann's teeth and braces are doing fine but nothing has been said about them being close to finished.  She enjoys the art lessons but they haven't done much painting yet.  She seems to be doing a little more homework this year but they don't get grade cards so it is hard to tell how she's doing.

I had to help decorate tables Thursday for an As You Like It Club dinner.  We used fall things--pumpkins, leaves, nuts, etc. with orange candles.  The tables looked real pretty.

We still don't have our leaves raked and it is sprinkling rain.  People around us have raked a time or two and they probably wish we'd get busy, but we are usually the ones that rake several times.

Well, everyone is up & I haven't fixed any breakfast.  Hope you both are fine."

                       Lots of love,


P.S.  I ordered B & Bob a coat out of that Sear's sales catalog you had this summer & finally got them Friday.  I ordered Aug. 20 & had to write & write about them.
