This is Caroline on her first day of kindergarten, this was taken Tuesday. She loves it, I ask her today if she had learned anything yet, she said yes, she had learned the rules.

Caitlyn and Caroline spent last night and today with us, we had a good time. Caitlyn called Thursday night and said she already knew what she wanted for supper, Granny's Pizza, they enjoy making them with me as well as eating them. We put what was leftover in the frig.....that is what Caitlyn had for breakfast.

Caitlyn said.... 'you might be a redneck ride your tractor to check the mail'.......will this is Caroline and Pawpaw going to check the mail, they had picked the grapes and then they went to get the mail....they were having a good time together.

Seems like I have been staying really busy lately. We were busy again this past seems good to get a paycheck for 32 hours....we have only been getting 24 hours for a while now.

I finished the two aprons last weekend and one of them has been pickup and the other should be picked up this week. Pearl and Lori helped me make the pincushion...we had a lot of fun making is for my sister.....she loves is made from a half pint jar, a little fabric some batting and some glue......we put a package of needles and some buttons inside. I think Pearl and Lori are some good little crafters.

Sammy and Amanda went to her cousin's funeral Thursday night and then the grave side service Friday morning. The kids came to spend that time with us, they got to spend the night Thursday and then the day Friday, Sammy and Amanda came to pick them up and were able to stay and eat supper with us.

Van and Gloria (Amanda's parents) rode the motorcycle here to see the Grandkids a few minutes, those kids really love that motorcycle, as you can see. I think Van loves giving them rides too. That sweet lady is Gloria, she loves all our Grandkids, that is Noah she is holding.

Please keep the Mitchell family in your Prayers, most of all Becky, Bless her heart she has really been through so much.
PSALM 46; 1
God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.

After not have much work for a long time now......We have really been busy this week. We work from 8:00am till 8:00 pm yesterday and from 8 until 6 today....don't get me wrong I am Thankful for the work..but boy am I tired. We will probably work 8 hours tomorrow and then be off the rest of the week.
Amanda loss one of her cousin's yesterday, he was only 24, he was sleeping when his Mom went to work and when she came home he was still in bed and had passed away, they don't know yet what the cause of death was, please keep his family in your Prayers. His Dad died suddenly 2 years ago, so this is really going to be hard.
ROMANS 8; 26
Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered.

Amanda and the kids spent Thursday and Friday night with us. We really had a good time. I saw this sprinkler at Walmart the other night, I thought the kids would like doesn't work very well...but they did what a good time. Noah is a big fan of sprinklers though...he really wanted to play with the balls that go in this one so I had to carry him up to it so he could put them in and let the sprinkler shot it out. We also had fresh veggies out of the garden, the kids love to help Pawpaw bring the veggies to the house and then they really enjoy eating them.

Sammy was at church camp with his brother-in-law, it was a little break for him and I think he had a good time.

Amanda and the kids left around three this afternoon and Pawpaw and I took a nap.

Jason and his family went to Dollywood and that area this week, he called this afternoon to say they are home....sorry but I took the phone off the hook...when I went to sleep, but he said they are home safe. Praise the Lord.

PSALM 145; 3

Let everything that hath breath praise the Lord. Praise ye the Lord.

I thought I would stop in and say Hello..... I have been pretty busy lately....not that I have gotten much done. I spent the day yesterday in the recliner with my back hurting sooooo bad, I took something for pain a couple times... I hate taking pain meds...but sometimes I have to take it.

Thursday on the news they said the Pitt County Cancer Society needed hats for chemo patients, some I made these hats to send off the first of next week. Part of them are knitted on my loom knitter and the others are from a pattern I found online for chemo hats, they are soft knit fabric, except for the one fleece one.
JAMES 5; 16
Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a rightoues man availeth much.
