At some point I will be making A Place for Us private. It just seems important as the grandkids get older.If you're among the few who want access, I am happy to put you on the approved list; text/call/comment to let me know. Thanks!

|When I wasn't reading, I worked a LOT of puzzles.|
|The wait for a part to repair the ice maker is ongoing. |
When they tell you they have no idea of a ship date,
it's hard to be optimistic.
|The thermostat broke, too. |
The good news is that it was replaced without any charge.
|A trip to mama's to take her to the dentist...|
|...deal with the air bag recall...|
|...and meet with her CPA to get taxes filed.|
|Finally joined ancestry.com and, hallelujah, was able |
to import my existing gedcom file.
Now I'm having fun filling in some blanks.
|Got a portable scanner that has made getting documents|
and photos uploaded SO much easier. This should
keep me occupied until forever.
|After getting new glasses (well, same glasses, new |
prescription), I ordered some sunglasses. My old ones
were from several prescriptions ago and it was time.
After all, a girl's gotta be able to see at the beach!
|The girls were "children of Jerusalem" in the annual|
Promise production. It was so good.
|Sure would be nice to win!|

Not one picture of it but the Junebugs were able to be together for an early birthday celebration for Mary Ann. It involved tacos, beer, and key lime cupcakes. Yum. We decided that now that our baby, Sylvia, is retiring, we can go to the beach in the fall instead of the summer, so I guess we are now the Septemberbugs. We have fun wherever and whenever we are together.
A by-product of the visit was that I got new lamps! The friend that had them didn't need them and gave them back to Mary Ann, who then passed them on to me...and I love them!

Kate was home this weekend to help with a shower for a sweet friend getting married. At the same time, Worth and his crew were spending the weekend at her house and the farm (and even swung by to see mama!). Timing is everything, right? She was able to wait until Saturday to come so she did get to see them Friday night along with the Summers family. Yep, at one point there were nine children in her house, all younger than ten years old. Thank goodness for the playroom.
I took the first picture; the rest were shamelessly borrowed!

We've been planning a trip to Virginia to celebrate Sister Sue's big birthday; it's been too long since we made that trip.
|You can count on I-95 being ridiculous. We just missed being ahead of a|
traffic management blockage.
|Half an hour of this was no fun, but at least it wasn't due to an accident.|
|This was the situation in my lap the entire weekend.|
Without any encouragement, I might add.
|This little chickie has more energy than all the rest of us|
put together. So cute. Her brother was there, too, he was
too cool to hang with us and so there's no picture of him.
|Sadly, we never even got a picture of Sue and me together.|
Did get this one of the brain trust.
|Big outing to the book store!|
|Delicious food all weekend; Sue's birthday dinner was |
particularly fabulous. Following family tradition, I took
this picture to share with the ones not there!

Tis the season...
Both girls are playing. Here are some pics of one of Ellie's games. Joe was in town so he went with us and Mack was a big fan of that.
A few days later we went down to one of Emma's game. We're all a little shocked at how fierce she is on the court!
