November 29, 2009 – Putting Bees Away for Winter

It’s time to tuck the bees in for the winter.  By the end of this week, the highs are supposed to be in the 20s.

Martin and Linda add the insulated cover to the hive.

Here, they pose after finishing the job – the black cardboard has been slipped over the hive and we wait until spring to do anything else with the bees.

November 28, 2009 – Emma on the Hardwoods

Emma switched school districts this year to attend a larger school with more opportunities.  She’s getting into the swing of things with a new basketball team.  She plays on the 9th grade team and also has been getting a minutes on JV.

Here, Emma listens to the coach during a TO.

#50 is starting to be a presence in the post.  The 9th grade team has already equaled last year’s season win total in the first two games of this year!  In this JV game, Emma tied for high scoring honors on the team and also contributed three assists.  She’s just a model of health and happiness after the games and practices – she glows a little bit like Rudolph!
