Wow, it's been a long time since I wrote on this thing. I forgot I even had a blog, Jessica had to remind me. I do love to read other blogs, and keep up with my big family that way.

I have been busy busy busy with quilts, and suddenly I had 2 new great grand kids all at once. On July 7th Lala and Carl became parents of twin daughters. That makes 46 great grand kids, I think.

On July 11th, grandpa had been gone for 7 years. I still think of things I'd like to tell him. But then I realize, he's not here. I wake up at night, and reach for him. I do! I'm half awake in a stupor, and I reach for him. Habits of 61 years are hard to break.

So far I've only taken 1 major trip this year. I went to Washington DC to spend the 4th of July holidays with Nancy, Chris, and the boys. Oh my gosh, how much they have grown in just 1 year! I went to visit Lala who was on bed rest in the hospital, and Nancy Sabina who is on bed rest at home. As hard as that is to do with 3 children, she is managing that quite well.

Jessica and the children have been with me all week this week. What a treat. The kids are going to bible school at a Reformed church. So they're learning lots of false doctrine. And they make a cross every day. So we spend time talking about the gospel on the way home.

I'm still sitting here at the sewing machine, making quilts for the great grand kids. I've finished 22 so far, only 5 more to go. Fortunately I'm not making them for everybody,just for the kids 12 and under. However, the babies keep coming.
My problem is: I don't have a list of everybody's birthday. So I would sure appreciate it, if the mothers would send me a list of their kid's birthdays.
