End of School Year

I see it has been a month since the last post. It has been a busy month for sure. We were getting ready for our second grand baby to be born. She was born about a week ago! A beautiful girl named ZeQara. She is fun and adorable. Mommy is doing good as well. 🙂 She and mommy are living with us currently. ZeQara is a good baby so far.  🙂  I tell her mom that means she will be ornery when she is older. LOL

Hopefully not, but you know.   🙂

We were blessed with our four kids being pretty good babies. ZeQara’s mom(oldest kid) is so far the orneriest of them all. Still have two going through high school, so one could win that honor yet. The youngest at times tries.

I sure can not believe how fast time flies. I remember as a young kid wanting time to speed up. The adults would say oh just wait, it will go by so fast when you are an adult. I didn’t believe them. Wowzers!

Definitely, they were correct.

Then what will we ever do?

Spoil grand kids? I think that is a winner! We have two now! Bummer the grandson is many miles away, but that might change someday! If not, maybe traveling will be in the plans to see him. Miss his parents as well.  🙂

We are in for some more rain tonight. We have had way too much for the month. Our lake and rivers are getting too high. We did see a tornado two days ago that was along side our neighborhood, a mile or two away, so there was no damage. Hopefully the weather person is wrong for more storms tonight.

Well, I best figure out supper, have a good night everyone! 🙂
