First Snowfall of the Season

came today and the kids couldn't wait to get out there. They missed seeing snow last year, so this was a special treat. We tried to convince them that there will be plenty more coming soon. Ahh... to be a kid again and to actually like snow!

Yesterday, November 15, we went to Jackson's Michigan Theatre to see "The Encounters at the End of the World - a documentary about the scientists in Antartica. Fascinating and the kids were in awe at the scenery. The Michigan is one of those majestic theatres from the 1920s that's currently under restoration. 1.5 million dollars has already been put into it and there is a lot more work to be done. But the grand lobby and the work that is done is simply beautiful. One can just imagine the crowds from the Thirties and Forties enjoying "the picture show" on the big screen.
