I am going to post more pictures than usual tonight to bring you up to date in our lives.
The chapel for Pass Lake, Ontario, is coming along nicely ~ thanks to a great crew of workers.
The paneling is finished.
Monday and Tuesday: At our house – the Daryl Bollinger Company did a great job of installing fascia and soffet in the spouting/roof area of our house. They also installed a gutter guard in the spouting (to keep leaves and sticks from getting inside).
Now no more painting under the roof, and hopefully Cerwin will not have to get on the roof to clean out the spouting. 🙂
Tuesday: It was a beautiful, foggy morning as I traveled to and from the post office.
Tuesday and Wednesday: Jesse and Gloria got to spend time at our house.
Wednesday was Jesse’s first experience at helping to label the Highway News. Behind him is Alex, a next-door-neighbor who came with his grandma.
At the other table was Gloria, Mary (Alex’s grandma), Julia, Glen, and Cerwin.
That evening Gloria’s friend Ashlea came to spend the night ~ and brought a cake she had decorated in cake-decorating-class.
It’s fun for me that my sister and I have granddaughters who are good friends.
Great job Ashlea.
Friday Evening: Jere’s invited us for supper.
While we waited for supper the boys showed us the boats they made with Legos.
Ian showed us his new glasses.
He usually wears contacts, but at times needs glasses and his old ones were getting too small.
It was fun having Lydia (from Maine) join us. She is in Pennsylvania for BBI (Brethren Bible Institute) next week.
Jere grilled the chicken and steak to perfection!
Jesse, Irene (exchange student from Spain), Jared, Kristen, Josh, and Jere.
Our dessert was ice cream and s’mores.
Jared was roasting mine ~ and I told him that I like them melted the whole way through.
Oh my. It was perfect!
He also made a good one for himself.
After supper Jesse decided to go for a swim.
Saturday: I spend the day working in the flowerbeds, so our yard would look nice for the weekend.
The daylilies were so pretty.
Sunday lunch: Cerwin and I had the pavilion ready, the tables set, and the doggie fire ready for the Hershey Reunion a few minutes before everyone arrived.
Since we had a bit of time, I told Cerwin that I want to take a picture of him showing how tall the corn in beside the pavilion.
Our sister-in-law Brenda brought a delicious taco salad.
Dave and two of his and Laura’s boys (Caleb & Benny) roasting hot dogs.
It was a small group for the Hershey’s (maybe 35 or 40) but it was a perfect day for a family get-together and we had fun visiting aunts, uncles, and cousins.
Victoria and Emma in the sand and Kelci in the background.
Regan and Jake.
After the Hershey’s left, we refreshed the table cloths and prepared for our Sunday school picnic.
It was a great evening of eating and visiting.
That brings you up to last night ~ and we have big travel plans for tomorrow, so stay tuned.
