July Happenngs

What a month!  This July has flown by so quick.  It is hard to believe it is almost gone.
While we did not get to vacation as a family, we kept busy.  

The first full week our teens enjoyed six days at camp CoBeAc in Michigan.  Our youngest enjoyed five very full days at Camp Assurance in Illinois the second full week.  Last week two of our young adults enjoyed three days at Eljiah' s Harbor in Tennessee with the single adults from our church, while our oldest nester in the house enjoyed a full day canoeing and relaxing in the water in southern Indiana.  However, the swimmers ear afterwards was less than fun.

Yesterday Hubby and four of our adult/young adult sons went to see the Manchester United soccer team play in Chicago.  They got home about 4 o'clock this morning.  Of course that means yours truly did not sleep well.  I was up about five times from 11:00 last night until 3:50 this morning.  I finally decided to stay up and get my day going.  And a very long day it will be!

I still have two birthdays to blog about and some card creation pictures to upload and post.  But for now, I need to kiss Daughter #2 and watch her off to work!!

  1. Wow! I think Momma needs to go away to camp! I've been checking in every day, and now I know why you haven't had time to write in your blog! Slow down and take a breath...

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!
