The rebirth of a country school

Month: December 2014

Up On the Rooftop…

Merry Christmas to all!  

It was over the river and through the woods, not to Grandmothers but to the schoolhouse we went.

And not to mix our Christmas rhymes, but What to our Wondering Eyes did appear, up on the rooftop, 8 tiny reindeer?

1225141219Hmm, well, something was up there, but I’m not sure if Santa had a rough landing, or score one more in the eternal battle of Us vs Raccoons.  Stay tuned for on-going rooftop adventures here!

Despite the Christmas surprise, we spent a nice afternoon exploring with Janelle’s two boys.  All else seems peaceful, so we headed out again in search of some holiday dinner and naps on the couch.


See you all in 2015!!


Winter has arrived

Just a quick note – we had to visit during the busy holiday, missed it too much.


Last week the school got a good foot and a half of snow, most of it melted now, but still beautiful.

We followed tracks of several little furries, but no sign of them inside.  They’re either more sneaky this year or have hightailed it to somewhere more promising.

Took a minute and turned the crank on the post jacks…another creak, another pop and another 1/4″ up.

Last but not least, left a little holiday decoration.  Now back to the planning!
