It's Here!

The new school year!!!  I bet I walked ten miles today going up and down the stairs, and from scholar to scholar!  I thought I had vertigo for a bit, then I realized I was just a bit dizzy from going around the table, and around the table, and around the table... 

We have five scholars upstairs in my dining room, which is where we do almost everything, and three scholars in the downstairs livingroom, that I rarely ever get to enjoy!  {long story for another day}  Our dining room table is just shy of twelve feet, not long enough, and about four feet wide.  By the time we get our materials out and video/laptops we end up with four at the table.  I know, "four at a big table?", but this is one time that the nesters can claim a space and not share.  We tried to put six at the table it was "Too Close for Comfort"!  {you should have seen my Stampin' Up! workshop with 14 adult women at my table!  good thing we were all friends, it was a sight for sure!}

I think I survived, no one has told me any different.  It has been a whirlwind day and dear hubby did not get to enjoy it at all.  That's okay, I will leave the Algebra for him to help with!  That will give me time to find my desk, piano, piano bench, and kitchen counter!  I know they are around here least that is what I think is holding up my papers and school stuff!!!  "Have you seen the chicken I am thawing out for supper?" ;-)

My Mother's Gentle Love

My Mother's Gentle Love
by Ron Hamilton
Who puts a band-aid on my knee?
Who holds me close so tenderly?
Who always sees the best in me?
There’s no one like mother.

Who always wipes my tears away?
Who tells me I’ll be great some day?
Who cares in such a gentle way?
There’s no one like mother.

My mother’s gentle love, my mother’s gentle love
Has taught me of God’s tender care, and turned my eyes above.
I’ll bless her all my days for all her gentle ways.
Oh, how I thank my Lord above for my mother’s gentle love.

Today is my mother's viewing, and tomorrow is her funeral.  The song above so much describes my mom.  She loved her four children so very much!  Before she had children, she was a nurse for "special care" babies~~"old" term for NICU.  Once she started having children she gave up her career to stay at home and raise her own babies. Thanks, Mom!

Thank you, Daddy, for allowing Mom to stay at home and raise us four children!

Graduation 2017 Post

Finally, here are pictures from Son #6 and Daughter #5's graduation.  I finally figured out what I was doing wrong downloading pictures!!

A Couple of Pictures

I have a couple of pictures to share.  Here is a picture of our newest grandbaby!

Introducing "Mildred Millie Maude".  No, that is NOT her name.  Let's just say when Son #2 and Daughter-in-law #2 decided on a name, before she was born, I would refer to her by her name-to-be.  Not once did anyone ever correct me that I was pronouncing it wrong until about 5 days before she was born.  Dear Son asked me to repeat  her name, not once, not twice, but three times before I realized he was "making fun" of the way I was pronouncing the name. He is not the only one who poked fun at me.  I guess I put the emphasis on the wrong syllable!  So, this ol' Mammi decided to come up with a name until I can either take speech lessons and learn to pronounce it, or a nick name!  {just a side note, Son is NOT impressed with my "name" for her.  oh well, life goes on!}

Here is a picture of 8 of our nesters, and "guard" dog, Lucy.  This was taken last night, October…
