It has been a long time since I was on here and I have missed you all.
Let’s see what has happened. DH had hip replacement in March and is doing awesome with it, now he has a knee that is bothering him. At this rate by the time he is ready for retirement, he will be bionic!
Spring came and a huge garden, the kids and grandkids put the garden in with us this year. Once again our tomatoes were superstars. We quit taking 5 gallon buckets to the garden and used the wheelbarrow to take them to the produce table about every other day. Peppers have done well, okra (which we never grew before) did awesome! not so much for the cantaloupe, something kept eating it and I strongly suspect grashhoppers!, butter nut squash, Oh My Gosh. I bet we have between 70 and 90 and they are still blooming!
Work is so busy and we have not slowed down since January but it is all good and something different every day.
Mr. B wrestled this winter (still don’t understand it), he played t-ball and did very well, hit several triples and doubles and made several outs. Ms. A danced and was so cute, she has learned she loves to sing and knows all the words and motions to “Frozen”. Mr. R is still a Papa’s boy and shadows him everywhere. When Papa was in the hospital after surgery (that very night) R insisted that he get in bed with Papa and of course he was allowed to and laid right there next to Papa and was content!
Mowing the yard and church has been a challenge this year because we have had rain when we need it and between that, the garden and work for both of us, it has taken some pretty creative scheduling to keep everything looking good.
Most of my quilting has been put on the back burner because we have been so busy but with the weather cooling off, the garden and yard will slow down so I can get back to that.
It is time to start back to Kids For Jesus in about 10 days and I am excited to see all the littles again. I have missed them this summer and I didn’t get to help with Vacation Bible School because of my work schedule so that makes me doubly excited to get back to work with these kids. A heart bursting moment I guarantee you all, when you hear your grandchildren recite the Lord’s Prayer during Church service. I guarantee it will make you cry with joy to know they are being trained up in God’s ways and Grace! Plus they have awesome teachers at Church and a great babysitter. Our church held VBS this year with a new preacher and according to the kids it was great. They ended up with a camp out in the parking lot and breakfast the next morning. Thanks so much Pastor Rebecca! You are amazing. She has a son that is 6 weeks younger than Mr. B and they have become great friends.
Now it is soccer season with the grandchildren, instructional of course, they are too young for anything else. Makes me glad because another sport that Nanny and Papa know nothing about, luckily Caleb (Shawna’s boyfriend) does and plays with them!
I promise I won’t let it be so long next time and I promise I will be telling you all about Craft Day that is coming up in 3 weeks. Oh gosh, now that really made me nervous, better get busy getting ready to have a pie baking marathon with the girls and slip some cornbread in there as well!!
Hope your spring/summer has been good.
