Good Morning

In a bit of a hurry this morning and I was trying to find a picture and this is from this summer when we had the trade off of grand girls leaving and coming to Iowa. Kelly on the left was coming back to Illinois after staying for a week at GranAnnie's house.. Emily and her friend Eorr (Elizabeth) were going to come to Gran Annie's for a week.. I always need a picture to put on my blog or it looks just too plain.. I had such a great time with these girls >  I miss them so much and love them even more..
Getting ready to go to school and do my volunteering with Mrs. Wittenburg's Class of second graders. I wish I could take pictures of them but with this day and age of privacy I can't post any pictures of these precious children who I have become friends with and just love being with them. I think I could of been a teacher.  I guess you could say I was a teacher by raising 4 children.. These children (15) are just a lot of fun to help with their reading, math or anything else Mrs. Wittenburg has in mind for me to do with them.. Taking sliced apples to them this morning.. I bought one of those Apple slicer,corer, peeler yesterday and I'm going to take it to school to show them how easy and cool it is to cut up an apple.. I don't know if you have ever seen one of these ~ but they are the coolest.. In the evening when Dave and I want a snack I cut one of these apples and put it in the micro-wave for 5 to 8 minutes.. Oh it's so good. nice and hot with just a touch of cinnamon on top and sometimes I sprinkle raisins..   It's very tasty and satisfying .
        Yesterday I had lots of errands to do and it felt good to come home with everything I needed... Ever go to town to get a specific item and come home without it?   Yikes~! that is not good.. Grocery store is 15 miles from here so it's a long way to town.. Well it's just not right down the road.   It's always good to have milk, bread, and toilet paper in the house..
       Beautiful sunrise this morning and the Lord is so good.. Good time for devotions and listening to my favorite music.. Must go.. Ben will be here soon for me to take him to Pre=School and then go to Mrs. Wittenburg's Class..  On Thursday his Dad drops him off here at the house before he goes to work.  He is always a bundle of joy and brings lots of sunshine into our house. Praise God for Grandchildren and Children so we can have grandchildren.. :).  Have a Blessed Day ~ ta ta for now from Iowa:)
