Life and Family Update – My Kids Are Grown

September 21, 2016

Welcome to my blog. When I saw that my last post was January 17, 2016 I could hardly believe it had been that long. Thank you for coming back and checking in with me. Here is a glimpse at what I have been up to for the last 8 months.

  • Visited my sister-in-law and her husband in Venice, Florida.  Also visited friends that have a house not too far away from there.  It was cold the week we were there but still warmer than Minnesota!
  • Our son, Nathan got engaged and the wedding is October 22 in the L.A. area.  We are blessed with another wonderful daughter-in-law.
  • I attended the wedding of my niece in the Dominican Republic.  All 4 of my children were able to attend as well and everyone had a fabulous time.  It was a great group of people and many fun memories were made.  I absolutely love any vacation that is close to the ocean.
  • Tax season!
  • Our son Ted graduated with his MBA from the University of Chicago.
  • My daughter Jill invited me to go to Aruba with her and we enjoyed touring the island together.  Definitely a place that I would like to go back and visit again.  I don’t get to spend a lot of one on one time with my daughter so this was extra special for me.
  • Our daughter-in-law Emily graduated with her MBA from Northwestern University in Evanston, Illinois.
  • I went to Haiti for week in July.  My next post will detail my trip and what we accomplished while in Haiti.
  • Family reunion in Branson, Missouri with a stop in Kansas City to visit our daughter-in-law Bella.  We were happy to spend the weekend with her.

These are just some of the things that I have been busy with over the past 8 months.  I can’t wait to share about my adventure in Haiti.

I haven’t been able to spend much time with my stamping this summer but just in the past week I have been busy making some cards for a Haiti fundraiser and I can’t wait to show you some of my creations.

Thank you for coming back to visit and I promise I will be back soon.
