New Duties

My duties in the last week have sure been different than normal. Bottle washing, diaper changing and playing simple games are a few of the things. It has been fun and enjoyable for the most part and I'm sure going to miss it, and I'm thinking there will be a few times where I'll be missed when I'm gone. I've a few pictures that hopefully show up in the next week or so when I get home.

Visiting, photos

Well, I'm glad to be back online! Boy am I ever addicted! Confession is good for the soul they say!

Anyway, I'm now visiting our son and family. Our grandson hurt himself awhile back and now we got to see the healing of his head as you can see from the picture below. Check here for the before pictures, 5 stitches it took!

And while we were in the 'taking the picture mode' - "Grandma, can we make me look funny?"
Who could resist? - thus the following pictures.

I'm thinking, that to have an exciting life, a person should have one exciting event once a month. Now I would think that I'm talking about a good event, not a tragic one. But even still a tragic one has it's place in there too.

So I'm feeling a bit over whelmed these last few months, both from exciting and tragic events. June was exciting, my 50th party, and all of us getting together for a wonderful surprise for me --- and tragic - Richard's death.

July - I don't know maybe just recuperating from June, and hearing that Peter's sister isn't well. He got a chance to go and visit which I know was a great opportunity for him.

August is full of enough events too. We just had a wonderful surprise visit from supporters, a couple from AB/BC. So glad to have reconnected with them after so many years. (Maybe we will take time to go and visit them when they are in BC.) AND we travel to and attend conference and after that we plan on volunteering at the camp where J & B & N & M are at and have been all summer. Of course there has been exciting news from them and here's a few pics to show the high points of that:

Aren't they cute! Enjoying Bible Camp all summer!

A run-in with a swing, good scar material for impressing the girls in a few years!!!!! (He got 5 stitiches, already out and is doing just fine! We talked to him on the same day and he was himself!)

And she just loves her big brother!!!

Well that's all for now!

Another step

Okay, I know I've not updated about our painting for awhile....

So today I cleaned the tape residue off the picture window!

There was a lot of elbow grease used, even though I did use WD-40! (I'll think twice about putting tape on the window to hold up material to block passer-byers from seeing in, or rather leaving it on that long!)
