I was young and now I am old, yet I have never seen the righteous forsaken or their children begging bread. Ps. 37:25

Christmas Newsletter 2015   Leave a comment

  Well, all we continue to say after last year is that we are so glad Roger is with us this year!!  As I wrote last year, he was in the rehab center all last Christmas and it continued into February.  He was finally able to come out then and recuperated at his parents’ until […]

Transfers and Changes!   1 comment

  After a very busy, enjoyable summer, we are headed into a fall of changes yet excitement! First, Chris had a very nice summer camp, along with Ryan, part of the time, where the boys got to swim, go to the mall, the movies, play at the park, and just generally get a lot of […]

When you get that text or call…   Leave a comment

I was getting a hearing exam Thursday (yesterday) and was in the chair with the thick ear pieces in my ear, hearing the series of beeps to say yes or no to.  When I was all done (hearing hasn’t changed – my old hearing aid was cleaned and still good) I checked my phone.  It […]

Tomorrow you were due —   Leave a comment

19 years ago. I can’t believe how long ago it was!  I quit working around May 19 to prepare for your arrival. Colleen was our second child and we did not find out if we were finding a boy or girl – we didn’t find out with Chris, either.  (We did, with Ryan, for some […]

18 years ago —   Leave a comment

With Colleen’s birthday coming up on Tuesday I felt like posting some publishable parts of my old diary, from 5-12-94. Hard to believe it’s been 18 years. Work told me I’m definitely getting my three-week vacation pay, three-week sick leave, and they want me to do tapes at home. I also may be able to […]

Senior year for 3 of us!!   Leave a comment

RJ is in the 4th grade now and starts Wed. in his autism class, with a new teacher for the 4th and 5th grades.  Hard to believe I have an older elementary school student now!  Will get pictures of all three kids and post soon. Colleen is a senior!  All the festivities that go along […]

17 years ago – Colleen’s birth   Leave a comment

  Yes, another birthday today!  Amazing how fast it all goes.   Was just reviewing some entries from my journal from back then – actually 5-12-94:   “First things first, I’m 2 cm dilated (as of last Friday) and am working only one more week.  I’m ready to enjoy this summer off with my children.  […]

Transition to spring —   Leave a comment

  The Snowmen (NOT CHRISTMAS, MOM! lol – she put the Christmas bow with them – “that’s not right,” as Ryan would say).  They are ready to go to the attic, all condensed and ready for their box as soon as I get it packed (Monday?)  Still have two lone snowmen decs on the mantle […]

Seems fitting to attend a great barbecue the week before school!   Leave a comment

Sometimes it’s challenging to get through the summer easily trying to keep two rambunctious boys happy and safe in the heat.  But all in all I think we all accomplished this this summer.  We have worked as a team – Chris stays at his paternal grandparents’ still (while we await, seek, and research the appropriate […]
