The weather has turned slightly cold here in Illinois. Who would have thought a few days ago we were in the 40s and today we’re barely in the positive digits! Even though the weather turns your breath to ice there are still a bazillion things to do out doors…if you’re daring enough.
Now, we’re not saying we have braved the cold the past few days…crazy has to have its limits, we just thought we’d comment on the cold. 🙂
In a couple of days the gang will be getting together to plan the upcoming year. A lot of crews plan for the year in the fall but we have always done our planning in the spring. On the docket is our 2013 Relay for Life team, maybe a trip out West, Philmont in 2014, crazy summer river activities, camping at Ingersoll and whatever else our little imaginations conjure.
We’ll have a good time on Sunday and hopefully we’ll actually get things accomplished but what I love about our group are our not-planned hangout days. A group of 12 of us decided to catch a movie this past Sunday, Lincoln. The movie was excellent but being together for a few hours was even better. We passed popcorn up and down the isles, crawled over each other to get refills and only attempted to trip each other once or twice. If one movie wasn’t enough four of us went to another movie right after. That’s what makes our crew special, we’re not just crew members, we’re friends. No I take that back, we’re a family.
