Moving the carts to the winter storage
It’s official – summer is over. Since it was such a beautiful day, Steve decided to walk the extra carts to the garage for winter storage today. He can hook 5 carts together and walk them down the street – it’s the easiest way! Last year, he waited until a cold day, but today was perfect.
Ilya also spent a couple of hours outside this afternoon cleaning the carts – and working on his tan! It looked like a cart wash on the dock side of the building. If I didn’t get so many phone calls, I would have loved to do that myself!

The end of summer is a sad time for us, as we say goodbye to many of the blue-shirted summer kids who have been a big part of MSM for the past few months. Tommy and Maggie back to Phoenix, Lauren to Indianapolis. Emily off to the University of Richmond Law School. (She is in the midst of Irene right now – no power, but dry!) Andrew back to Green Bay, along with Matt, with Michael soon to follow. Matthew back to Florida, Matt S. a freshman at Northern Michigan. (We had a lot of Matt’s this summer.) Regan started classes at Lake Forest College Thursday and Erin and Sarah begin classes at St.Norbert College Monday.
The international kids start going back to their countries next. Nurgul and Guka leave for Kyrgyzstan this week. Antoniya to Bulgaria. Kevin to China and Ilya to Bulgaria. The rest will be here until late September or October – thank goodness!
The Main Street Market summer kids are wonderful – fun to work with and interesting. We had dinner at the MSM house last week; Chinese and Kyrgyzstan cuisine – it was delicious! And fun to learn more about their countries, families and customs.
I hate saying goodbye…
This is a poor picture of the front-end schedule for a week in August.
