Embracing the Culture

Minnesota pretty much feels like home and this is our third winter in this great state.  There are some cultural differences we had to embrace when moving North.  First, I now bring an "egg bake" as opposed to a "breakfast casserole" when attending a morning gathering, we pronounce the long o in everyday speech, find ourselves saying things like, "offda" and hockey and winter sports have become more common place.

Cathy's son, Matthew, is a pretty impressive hockey player and we finally made it to a game the other day.  If you don't count trying to eat rouge M&Ms from under the bleachers, the night was a hit with Lakin.  We loved seeing Matthew in his element on the ice and cheering on the team with Miss Cathy.

Hockey's not all that bad.
