A beautiful start
Well, we are well into SUMMER here, finally. We went to a 4 generation Family Reunion. In Southern Oregon for a week. My step-mothers' side of the family. My dad, step-mother, 5 brothers and me, and our families were their, as well as the other aunts and uncles. We had a great time, although I had to do most of the child-care and meal prep with the older women. I am the oldest, so it seems that that job always falls to me. My brothers' and their wifes always dissappear.
Let me put it this way---when we leave from my family--say the goodbyes--oh I love them, very much---but VERY happy the Lord chose me. I realize how blessed I am, that God takes care of me and my hubby and girls.
There was drinking every night, all night, thank God we brought our motorhome, we could escape it each night. Our 4th of July was beautiful. We loaded our Granny on her 80th birthday float, all the Grandkids and Great-Grandkids surrounded her. It was awesome, the float had at least 40 of us on it. And we took the 1st place trophy!!
I am home now, the wedding is all done. Wow, was it ever the task, but I loved it, and so did the bride. I will upload photos as soon as I get me camera hooked up.
Well, back to everyday life around here, and trying to get next years' homeschooling pulled together. Blessings to everyone.
