August 2014 issue of our newsletter, Bumps in the Night!!!!, is now available


Summer is half over and school will be starting soon. I’m sure most of you parents are glad for that…but thoBumps in the Night!!!se that are teachers are not. This summer has been a fun one for us so far and we still have more to go.

We just wrapped up our paravan trip (parathon) last week and have starting doing the data review. We have hours and hours and hours of audio and video and hundreds, if not thousands, of photos to review. Our work is cut out for us. This year our trip took us to: Lemp Mansion in St. Louis, MO; McPike Mansion and Mineral Springs Hotel in Alton, IL; . Haunted “R” Theater in Auburn, IL; Conover Square Mall in Oregon, IL; and one last stop at a bowling alley in Wheeling. We had so much fun on this trip. Check out the trip summary on page 22 in this issue of BITN.
