We went to Barry yesterday to spend time with Grandpa Jim and Grandma Odie. Oh please pray for my grandpa. He weighs like 106 lbs or something, it is awful, he is still so strong though, he had so many beautiful words of wisdom for me, things he wanted me to know, to hold tight to. That was really a special time for me. To sit beside him and have him speak those words just for me. It reminded me of the biblical times when the patriarch of the family would call his children and grandchildren forward to his " right hand" and teach them.
After we got home yesterday the kids did school. We had read this awesome book called " Vinnie and Abraham" about the first women commissioned by the american government ( she was 16 at the time) and she sculpted a huuge statue of Abraham Lincoln that is in the Capital Rotunda now. Anyway, after reading this awesome book, my children decided to be sculptors. We bought the 97 cent modeling clay at walmart, and they set to work ( im soo frustrated because I had the coolest pics of them sculpting and with my grandpa, but i took them on my camera without the memory card in, by accident and i lost my cord! so mad!!) anyway, they worked so hard, and marlee even had a sculptor " hat and apron" on ( her chefs had and apron) and they were stinking adorable! I love my babies!!!!

I'm glad you were able to have that special time with your grandpa. You will have to tell me some of the things he said. To bad about those pictures! Darn!
