VBS week

It's Vacation Bible School Week. (I'm director this year.) The program will be Sunday morning. Then the youth group is having their annual ice cream social that evening. Meaning..... I'll update sometime AFTER this week!

Oh, but before I forget--I was helping a little boy scrub a very stubborn, sticky, gluey, play-doughy mess off of his hands after craft time. He looked up at me and asked, "Are you a grandma?"
: )
I took that as a compliment!

See you next week!

Already So Soon!

Now aren't you impressed? It's only 4 days later, and here I am again. : )

Hey, Sarah Sisters! Welcome to my blog! You gals are awesome--I don't know what I'd do without the monthly boost of endorphins at our circle meetings! : ) And Kathy..... we are SO HAPPY for you!!!

The class I took in Kansas City was for hours toward keeping my teaching certificate current. Don't know if I'll ever get back in a classroom of my own, but don't want to let the certificate lapse in case I do. This class was called "Birth Order, Gender, and Creativity" for whatever it was worth! The Ottawa University classes are the way to go, for sure! They are compacted into 2 or 3 days, instead of dragging out all through a semester.

When class was over Friday, I swung over and got T. (and ALL her dirty camp laundry!) for a couple of nights at home. It was a joy to have her around, then on Sunday it was back to her junior counselor job. She hadn't seen Molly's new kittens yet.

Katie, can you you pick out TJ? (Tipper, Jr.)

Aunt Betty passed away the end of May. I remember fun times and good food at her home. When we visited Osborne relatives, I would stay there at the farm with my cousin, Janet, instead of in town with the rest of the family. That meant even more time Aunt Betty had to put up with our silliness!

Don't know if I had mentioned that we had a second setting of eggs. They hatched out right around T's birthday. This chick is called "Golden". We also had "Early Bird" (hatched 3 days before the others!) and Nerdy (an odd grayish color, and the other chicks really did seem to shun him.) They are getting quite grown now, hard to tell apart, and all settled in their chicken coop.

If you're checking to see if there's anything new here...... this is it! For now anyway.

I'm in K.C. at my brother's. They have a wonderful bed and breakfast here! : ) Works out great for me when I take two day classes through Ottawa University here. More about that another time.

Speaking of K.C....... Karen C., it was great to get a comment from you!! Oh, but I about didn't find it, since you left it on my earliest post instead of the most recent. : ) That's okay--I'll take comments anywhere any of you want to leave them! Thank you to those of you who have left them.

I'll try to get back to this sometime next week. Not that there will be more time....... just that now that I've said that I'll have a deadline to meet. Does anyone else seem to get things done better if there's a deadline?
