Ava enjoyed having her grandpa and Uncle Brandon here. Grandpa came from Florida and Brandon flew in from Alaska, where he has been working.
The big reason for getting together was Brandon's and Ava's birthdays are on the same date, August 17. Brittanie and Ava were very happy to have this chance to be together with these guys. It was a good time for a boat ride on the lakes.
I was a first grade school teacher for several years before retiring to have a family. My husband and I raised 6 children, four were his and two ours. From '67 to '98, I had children at home. Loved them so much. They were my life. But now that I'm a grandmother and 'retired', I'm pretty much doing what I want. I have been an artist in oils and colored pencil. Now I'm in to digital scrapbooking big time. Besides that, I love Bible study. I belong to the most wonderful group in the world. ORU (Opinions R Us). Among the 9 of us 'girls',are opinions enough to run the world. We travel together,e-mail,'party' and all talk at the same time.
I cherish their friendship.
And my husband loves them all.
