The Half-way Point

Hard to believe only 3 more weeks before I head home. It's been an interesting visit so far. I've really enjoyed seeing people from back in the day. :) This last weekend was my 16th class reunion. Odd year, I know. There was a nice little group of us that got together and thought back to our younger days.

I've also gotten to be at the church I grew up in. It's been wonderful seeing everyone there, too. Today we had a covered-dish dinner after the service so I had the opportunity to visit a little more with folks and enjoy more good Southern food.

My grandmother is doing well. She says she feels great. She told her doctor the other day she felt she was wasting his time because she felt so good. She is soon getting a scan done to see if the chemo is having any affect on the cancer. Pray about that. I believe the scan is Friday. Tomorrow I am going through some old family pictures with her and scanning some into my computer. I want to get them onto disks for the whole family and also get a family tree written down too. I think she's looking forward to that.

The girls are great. EmMM is missing home and so is GEM. I don't have a good bed to sleep in so my back is giving me troubles, but I don't want to complain too much. There's nothing my grandmother can do about the bed at this point. :) I'll just look forward to seeing my chiro as soon as I return and a good night of sleep in my own bed, too.

I've been trying to help my mom figure out her computer. All I can say is "HAHA!!" It's a show!

The girls started school last week. We'll miss a day or two this week as we go back over to Alabama to visit my dad and step-mom. I'm so thankful that homeschooling allows me to be here without worries concerning their education. I'm looking forward to taking them to the Creation Museum on our way back home.

I don't get much computer access. I wish I did so I could blog more, but I'm journaling in my computer on Word documents to remember my trip. I hope the girls will remember a lot about the trip too. I hope they'll do some journaling as well while we're here.

Thanks to those that have asked about me. I appreciate being missed and thought of while I'm away.

Can't wait to hear about the Creation Museum. I told Rachel that we will try and stop there on the way to TN next summer.

Wish I could be at a good ole' southern potluck.

Will be thinking and praying for your grandmother. It sounds like you are having great times with your family. Awesome.
