Sunday, February 11
When we heard that Reuben, Judi, and their family were visiting from Wisconsin, we knew that we needed to have another family get-together. 🙂
Because there are always last minute things to do before lunch, we came home after Sunday school and listened to the church service by cell phone. Since the boys were still here, and Josh was coming for lunch, they sat around the table while I quietly worked next to them in the kitchen.
They each wrote a few sermon notes on back of the bulletin – for their parents who were in New Zealand.
I almost forgot to take pictures – until someone said they needed to leave. That is Judi and Reuben closest to the camera – with Cerwin, his brother Elvin, our nephew Don (standing) and his son Jeremy (in the background).
Cerwin’s sister Velda helping her great-granddaughter Audrina with her coat.
In this picture Judi is looking at pictures of her sister Juanita’s house. Mel and Velda visited Juanita on their way home from Florida a few weeks ago.
Audrina and her grandpa Rod preparing to head home. Next to them is my step-mother, Velma, talking to our brother-in-law Mel.
Mother Hershey likes to keep in touch with the High’s – as she and Mother High were good friends, and the two of them often went with us when we visited Cerwin’s sister in Minnesota.
Reuben and Judi (right) have amazing parent-hearts and have adopted three children. If you follow my blog, you may remember when they lived with us for several weeks a few years ago during their son’s adoption – and the ups and downs of that situation.
Their youngest is a beautiful, special needs little girl.
The other two were in the man cave being entertained by our grandsons.
I wanted Little Man to smile for the camera, but he kept making funny faces at me. 🙂 Josh is a good friend to them as well. Even though they don’t see him very often, they always remember him.
Meanwhile, Little Miss enjoyed watching Jesse play a game. As you can see, it didn’t take long for them to renew their friendship.
We enjoyed a bit of time with Reuben and Judi after the others went home. It was good to catch up on their lives. Visiting with them was like old times when they lived with us.
