Look what Paula’s been up to this summer! Our summer has been busy but laid back. Lots of camping and fishing, our home away from home at the campground. Our new puppy has been a joy and keeps us busy, he’s a real cuddle bug. I’ve been helping my daughter with wedding things, praying for a beautiful day and that we don’t have to resort to Plan C. I also painted my sons new house for him, so proud of him. We have missed or family and friends but are staying safe by social distancing as much as possible.

Danielle’s Trip to the great North Shore! Hi everyone! My family and I recently spent some time on the North Shore. This is an almost sunset shot in Duluth. We stayed on the point- the other side of the Aerial Lift Bridge. It was neat because you had to be in tune to when ships are entering the harbor so that you don't get stuck on one side and all night long we heard clanging ship was a maritime experience and adventure. Another part I love is driving up the coast and stopping at small rocky beaches and rock hunting. The lake was so cold it turns your feet numb! I love the color, intensity and vastness of Lake Superior. I've been going there since I was a kid, and when I get that first view of it coming into town my heart goes crazy. It was challenging traveling during a pandemic, but we Minnesotans are lucky that we have some gorgeous outdoors! So get out there!

Nancy Pfarr, Business Manager at MNCS, has had a busy summer working. But got away for a much needed week long vacation with family to Sunset Bay Resort in Hackensack, MN. The weather was perfect, and the fishing was spectacular with big bass in abundance that were exciting to reel in. The sunsets were amazingly beautiful each night, and birthdays were celebrated with a crazy "wig party" and everyone had a great week at the lake.

Let’s give a shout out to Carrie Rice and her new role at MNCS. Carrie Rice is not new to MNCS. Her husband David taught here for fifteen years and she has worked as a paraprofessional at the elementary and the high school the last several years. Just prior to moving to Henderson three years ago, Carrie left a 20+ career in government relations in the telecommunications industry. She is so looking forward to her new career as an Advisor at the high school helping young people discover a passion for teaching themselves new things! Carrie and David share their Henderson home with two dogs, two cats and a multitude of plants. She loves to cook and entertain friends and speaks French. All of the above is true, but since New Countrians love a good round of Two Truths and a Lie, see if you can guess the falsehood: Carrie has lived with a cat in her life since she was five. At one point, Carrie had six dogs under her roof Carrie once had an Appaloosa named Gizmo

Let’s give Nick Ryan a “woot woot” I'm excited to be moving back into an advisor role for this coming school year! I'll still be attempting to keep our technology running and managing our assessments as well. My summer has been fun so far. I took my two kids to the BWCA for the first time, the bugs and weather were very forgiving and everyone had a blast! With trail races cancelled it's been hard to stay motivated to run, so this past weekend I ran 40 1 mile laps around my neighborhood as part of a last runner standing event. I wasn't the last runner standing, but it was still fun. It takes a lot of pringles to run 40 miles! Today is also National System Administrator Appreciation Day! At MNCS If technical issues are at a stall, Nick Ryan is there to answer that call.
