Another week with family

It’s been another week spent with family.  I finally got my pictures uploaded off my camera .. although i have to admit i haven’t been taking as many as i should be.  We’ve just been having too much fun with the grands!


We spent one night being up with a sick kid .. hailey was running 104 temp with a virus bug her brother had earlier in the week.


Hubby and the grands picking goodies from the garden


I think this is going to be the last sunflower i have for the year.  I have enjoyed watching the bees pollinate them and then watching the birds come and eat the seeds.  They sure have saved on bird feed! 


Tyson enjoying spending time with his kids .. they are making the separate family thing work pretty good.


the grand kids enjoying a cook out after a day of 4 wheel riding and swimming.  Hailey like pork steak and Toby likes hot dogs.


Lexi enjoying some down time from the grands


Here is Roo the new addition temporally .. we are dog sitting for her until her owner can get a place pets are allowed .. she’s fitting in pretty good and the other dogs have accepted her very well.

Hailey and I off to enjoy the pool on a very hot summer day


The pool has been feeling pretty nice with the hot dry temps.  On Thursday early evening we finally got some rain .. we got a nice little storm with over 2 inches of much needed rain.  Then we got another nice little shower last last night. 


I know we have several months to go before we can head out but i sure have been having an hitch itch lately.  I’m divided between mother and grandmother duties and my desire to hit the road.  I know that my family needs me right now and i have enjoyed being here with them.  The gypsy in me just doesn’t like being stuck in one place for very long.  Our son has made the first steps in getting his life back in order.  Divorce papers were signed this week.  It shouldn’t be long before that part of his life is behind him and he can begin to move forward and begin a new life with his children.  It’s been a horrible ordeal for him and making him realize that no matter how bad he wants to, he can not change another person.  I’ve been encouraging him to get out and enjoy life when he doesn’t have his kids.  He is still young and needs to have some enjoyment in his life.  Sitting around and thinking what if or what could i have done to change things  isn’t going to change what has been done. We have let him know that we are proud of the man he has become and we stand behind him during this ordeal.  He did his best and unfortunately sometimes in life no matter how much you want something if both people do not want the same thing it just doesn’t work.

It seems that God brought us home for the summer for several reasons.  When we got home we knew that our son was having marital problems as this has been going on for several years now.  My dad dying with terminal cancer, my step passing away and hubby and i both having health issues.  It’s been one trying summer but as always we have our faith and God is always with us no matter what life throws at us.  We are slowly getting through these road blocks.  We made it through our losses although i do miss my dad everyday.  I’m just so thankful he isn’t suffering anymore and as i look back at the past year photo’s i see how he was suffering with his health.  Our son seems to be able to finally start putting his life back together.  He is finally eating and starting to sleep again.  When we returned home he is so thin and wasn’t sleeping 2 hours a night.  We seem to be getting him back on the right track of being happy that he hasn’t been in the past 4 years.  Now if we can just our health issues straightened out and get our son back on his own life will be good again.  I go Thursday for some testing and hopefully that will give us some results of what is going on with me.

Please continue to pray for our family that God continues to work things out.
