Where Have I Been?

June 25, 2010 — 2 Comments

Some who visit my blog may have wondered if I had decided to quit blogging.  My answer would be “no”, I’m still blogging.   Like Macy (my granddaughter) dashing across the sidewalk in this picture, I too, have been dashing around to various important family events in recent weeks.  I thought perhaps I would catch you up on the activities that have kept me away from my blog.

First, my daughter-in-law, Felicity,  graduated from the University of Illinois at Springfield, with a BA in English.  We are so proud of her!  She took classes on-line, while at the same time being an amazing wife, mother of 4 precious children and a gifted teacher at Heartland Christian College.  Here you can read more about her graduation from a really great writer — Felicity’s mom — Kathy Nickerson.

Next we returned to Dan & Felicity’s home where we were thrilled to watch our grandchildren, (Jesse, Claire & Ada) and their mom (Felicity) perform in the musical Psalty Songbook.  Felicity played Charity Churchmouse, and our grandson Jesse was Risky Rat.  It was fabulous!  If you’d like to read more about it you can go here

Then it was time for our next graduation!  Kindergarten!  Ada Jewel graduated this year!  We watched as she did a tremendous job reciting a very long scripture passage,and ALL the  States and their Capitals.  Then she finished the night by telling us all what she’d like to be when she grows up — a doctor!  Oh . . . and of course, she received her diploma!  We are so proud of her!

Then it was time for a very special event — our annual golf outing with our sons, Dan and Drew.

Oops!  You caught Don & I exchanging a little moment while on the golf course 🙂  (I like this guy .  . . A LOT!)

Oh, there they are!  My 3 golfing buddies (Don (center), Dan (left) and Drew (right)!  Actually, I don’t golf.  I just ride along in the cart and have a great time with them!  Oh . . . and I chipped a ball into the cup on my first try! Yay!

Just a couple more little pictures of some little people who (happily) have also occupied some of my time lately. . .

This is Rhythm                                                    And this is Luke

Well, I won’t add any more pictures and drag this out — mainly because I don’t have pictures of all the other things we did.  A short run-down would include, a trip to Pittsburg, KS, an anniversary trip to Kansas City, where we were able to spend time with special friends we hadn’t seen in a very long time, came home and hosted a pastor’s gathering at our church, took a trip to Casper, WY with some ladies from our church, and last, but by no means least, attended my nieces’ Dance Recital right here in town.  Their final dance for the evening was River Dance and it was a take-your-breath-away, give-me-goosebumps, and make-me-cry, kind of dance!  If I had pictures it still wouldn’t do it justice!  Totally amazing!!

Thanks to all of you for who stopped by and allowed me to catch you up a bit!

  2. I love the pictures!
    My blog has been suffering some neglect due to summer life, too! Hopefully that will be remedied soon! (the blog, not the life) 🙂
