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.
