What I have Learned from Camp

It is amazing that you are never too old to learn anything!  Yep!  Forty-seven years old and I have learned so much this week.  And to think, all I had to do was send children to church camp to learn!!!!

So, here are a few things I have learned so far::

1.  I can wash ALL the dishes by hand and not spend forever at the sink doing it!
     (dish washer has not been used since Sunday night)
2.  A double roll of toilet paper can last ALMOST three days!
3.  We're really not very hungry!  (snacks are  almost non-existent)
4.  Who's fighting????
5.  A gallon of tea is WAY too much!
6.  Mmmm...what is sugar?
7.  Coffee creamer last a LONG time!
8.  A gallon of milk can last for more than one day! (we are on day three!)
9.  We can eat at Denny's and not take out a loan!
10.  Laundry does not multiply like rabbits!
11.  I can STAMP, I can STAMP, I can STAMP!  
12.  My house is so much cooler! (I'm talking about the temp!)

Now, those are all really negatives!  I miss my little crew!  I'd change the T.P. roll eight times a day and run the dishwasher four times and break up 100 fights to have them all back home.  But until then I will enjoy the moment!!  It will all end Friday afternoon at one o'clock! 

Son #5 is going to spend the night with a friend tonight and go to camp  to visit tomorrow!  I will only have two at home!!!!  What will I do?  That will leave me only an eight year old son and a six year old daughter at home! THAT IS SOMETHING I HAVE NEVER EXPERIENCED!!! JUST TWO!!!  I may have to go out and "hire" some children!  Forget it, we are going to Wendy's for supper!!!!  (it is so cheap when you drink water and Hubby works late!)  {so nobody gets the wrong idea, I will still feed Hubby!}

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!!








They Said "I Do" and Here We Grow Again!!

"I do!"  Lovely words.  Son #4 and Bride were married on the 31st of March.  After weeks of planning they are finally married and home from their honeymoon!  (pictures to follow soon)   We are pleased to have a new daughter in the family!

Speaking of new...yes, a new babe is growing...Daughter #1 and Son-in-love #1 are expecting their second child in the fall!  Grandson E told us!  At first we just looked at him, dead silence in the room, and looked at his momma...and she was smiling!  YAY!  Our "grand" total will be 11 come fall!!!!!!

Soon we will meet Granddaughter E...!  Eight weeks until her due date...but will probably meet her in the next few weeks!  Everyday in the womb is a day of victory!

That's all for now!  I have had to update this about 3 times!  It has been in my "save" for several weeks!  As soon as I get a few minutes of free time I will be back!
