Nell has a baby girl her name is Helen Elizabeth Esther Ryan. I will see her when they come to visit Uncle John at Christmas. I will be at home then and it will be so lovely to have all of the family here. I am looking forward to that and also to my break from teaching.
It is not too badly cold yet but the Almanac says we will have a hard winter so January may see attendance down. I hope we have enough wood for the stove in the classroom.
