It's Been Way Too Long

brother Skip, sister Debbie, Me & brother Mike- reunion June 2011

Here it is the middle of July and I haven't blogged in forever, Goodness it has been since March, I was even asked by a friend if I had given it up altogether. No, not really, just haven't fit it into my day. I have taken on a couple of things and that's why I haven't fit y'all into my schedule. I am now the manager of the "Clothes Closet" at our church. We take in clothes, sort it to make sure it is OK and redistribute. I have wanted to do this for awhile, but I hope I haven't taken on more than I can chew. I also belong to a group of Christian women, who do a bible study. I am one of the teachers. Yes me! It's called "Women in the Word". We have a lesson then we brake into small groups and discuss (to make sure everyone understands) and how it fits into our lives.

Presently, I am in Maryland visiting the family up . I have been to NJ and a wonderful Family Reunion of over 150 aunts, uncles, & cousins and their families. I also returned to my old place of employment and enjoyed an indoor barbecue and seeing some old friends.

The grand kids keep growing the 12 yr old is taller than his mom now, but we expect him to be at least 6'4''. The twins now 11 are lovely preteens, and the youngest is 8 and continues to keep us on our feet! Last week he put a knife in the tire of a friend of my daughters. "I just wanted to see what it would do" he is not malicious just inquisitive. We decided we would have loved to do something like that but never had the nerve. He just goes with what he wants to learn. Now he has a bunch of stuff and trying to make a trap, but haven't figured what for, it's kind of big and elaborate. Just think if Ben Franklin or Edison's moms stopped their inquisitive minds we wouldn't have glasses , electricity or a variety of other things. Just this morn he helped his momma fix a flat tire.
