Scottish Rite Hospital

Well, we now have two days behind us for our 5 day stay at Scottish Rite Hospital for Aaron's evaluation and life skill education. So far he thinks its a pretty cool place because he won 6 prizes playing bingo the first night and and said he has not got stuck yet, as in a needle stick. He gets a lot of personal attention. Mimi and Papaw stay all day and Papaw is the lucky one to get to stay all night in the sleep chair. I am experiencing staying in a hotel room by myself for the first time, and I am enjoying the quiet and the tv all to myself. Hayleigh is spending these few days with her Aunt Amy and Maddie the dog. If everything goes well, we plan to go to the Dallas Arboritum on Saturday before we head home. Aaron was excited to learn today that he can go to Spina Bifida Camp next June and can go every year until he is 15. We are excited to find out about this wonderful opportunity for him. If you ever find yourself in need of donating to a charity, I highly recommend Scottish Rite Hospital.

Well this is day 4 of Bible School for Aaron and Hayleigh. They are trying to raise $1200.00 to buy a motorcycle for a missionary and if they do, Ms. Dinah will have to ride a motorcycle with Bro. Randy. I hope I am there to view this event. Closing program tomorrow nite. If I can keep them in a VBS every week, this should keep them very busy and give me a break. Ha. Trinity VBS is July 5th and I am helping in pre-school crafts. The summer is going by fast but its fun watching Hayleigh and Aaron together. They get along for the most part, but occassionally get on each others nerve as they say. Guess the hot weather is affecting Hayleigh as she has almost quit eating, does not seem to have an appetite. Guess the ole Texas humidity has gotten to her. She loves staying inside and being cool. So do I.

Baby England

Amy went to the Doctor on monday and Baby England has a heartbeat of 154, so it sounds like our little peanut (what we call it now) till we find out if its a girl or boy is doing great. As soon as we find out I can cut loose and start shopping, planning, etc. Thank you my sweet sugar bear and Bri for giving me another grandchild. You are going to be the best parents ever.

Thought you might want to look at some of the jewelry I have made and also is for sale. Incorporated some of my scrapbooking supplies to create color on glass. Hope you like it.

Thursday Craft Day

Tomorrow I have the grandkids scheduled to do balloon sculpture at the Texarkana Public Library in the morning, then lunch, shopping for clothes for the wedding on the 26th and an afternoon of a make and take at Michael's. Let's hope this will wear them out and they will be off to bed early in the evening.

Well, my sweet little granddog graduated from obedience class, so she will be a well behaved little dog, although she is pretty well behaved for a two year old (teenager) in dog years. I so would love to have a little four legged friend myself.

Well, after watching Hayleigh and Aaron bowl on the Wii and Aaron bowling a high of 257, I have decided to not compete with the grandchildren. Hayleigh bowled a 233 the previous game with 5 strikes in a row. I guess you have to be a child to really win on the Wii. They have just the right moves. Its been a fun game night watching Kung Fu Panda and Wii.

Today has been so pleasant being with my grandchildren Aaron and Hayleigh. They have played hard on the Wii, the computer , watching tv, and eating me out of house and home. I think I will have to spend more time in the kitchen just to keep up with their appetites. Soon as something comes from the oven, Hayleigh is ready to sample it. I found myself today searching for recipes and planning the next meal. Not something I have been doing much of since Don and I just eat whatever. My day to day has changed and it's not retirement anymore.

My First Post

There is so much to be excited about and I now have a blog to share my wonderful news. My daughter Amy will be giving me a grandchild this year, hopefully on it's due date of December 29th, which was my mothers birthday. That alone will make it so special and she would be so thrilled to know that another great was born on her birthday. I hope to continue to keep everyone posted on her progress and all the wonderful months ahead for her and her wonderful husband Brian.
