For all those sweet, darling children of mine ... I will be out of town this weekend. Yep ... I'm going to London to visit the Queen. Oh wait ... it's not London, England ... it's London, Ontario Canada near Toronto for a Stampin' Up! Regional Seminar. So ... don't forget your poor ole' Dad and Dieter at home all alone this weekend!
Say ... guess where we're going the first part of June? I see London. I see France .. I see ... hmmmm ... We're going to London, England .... Dad and I and Dennis and Elaine. Dennis served his mission there and Dad and Dennis want to spend their company money on a trip so that's where we're going. Lynn made the reservations today. We're staying in a nice hotel across the street from Buckingham Palace and should be able to see the changing of the guard from our hotel window. I'm soooo excited I can hardly stand it! We're going to try to get to Bosham on the coast about 74 miles from London to see where my ancestors lived.
Any volunteers for taking care of mum and dad while we're gone?
Dad fell down the stairs yesterday. He doesn't remember how he fell, but he went to answer the door and fell. He seemed to be fine last night. I saw him from the dining room window this morning working on his puzzle. I watched him get up from his chair and walk into the kitchen and he seemed to be doing fine. I'll have to call and check on him.
Have a good weekend. See you when we get back!
I'm Leaving for London Tomorrow!
Well ... I'm just an ordinary granny with 28 beautiful grandkids, 7 fabulous children, and 1 fantastic husband! My fantastic husband and I met while both serving missions for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latterday Saints, in the Gulf States Mission. This mission included Mississippi, Louisiana, part of Tennessee, and most of Arkansas. While in the mission field we were committed to the service of the Lord and of course no dating was involved. But two dates after our missions we were engaged and married two months later. Life has been wonderful with my Lynn! While raising our 7 children I helped supplement our income by teaching vocal lessons, babysitting, and doing hair, all in the comfort of my home. I'm currently employed at World Joy, a nonprofit organization improving health and education in the Atiwa District of Ghana, Africa. Now, we have been called to serve as full time Public Affair Specialists for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints in the Africa South East Area, living in Johannesburg, South Africa for 23 months. We are beyond excited since we will have each other as full-time companions 24/7. It REALLY is a wonderful life!
