New Blog

All the GRANDS at Easter!
Our Campsite!

So for some reason I have changed blogs!! Thanks KK. Without you I would be nothing! Well, without you & the Lord! (lol) So where do I start this one out?? Maybe the New Year which found us in Rogers, Arkansas at my brothers & his family. That was quite a trip just to celebrate his birthday! A big highlight of that trip was going to Neosho, Mo., and meeting Bruce's cousin, Owen & his wife, Billie. They so kindly showed us around and we got to see where Bruce was born and lived the first four years of his life. We got a very chilly, icy welcome from the southern states, though. Seems it was warmer in Idaho than in the south.!! But we were so thankful to be able to make this trip.

Now we are into summer and having some beautiful days. We were privileged to attend our little 'church camp' at Sage Hen Reservior. Pastor Bork, aka son in law, did an awesome job tending to our souls. Parsonage Queen, aka daughter, did a fantastic job as head cook. We were glad to have everyone who was able to attend. We really enjoyed those days in the Great mountains of Idaho.
Bruce has a nice garden going again this year even though it was a little late getting in. I will be glad when the tomatoes come on and I can get to making salsa again.
Well, now the GRANDS are doing Great. Jared is 18, has a good job at Les Schwab, & has a nice truck. He & I spent the day together recently and Grampapa approves of this truck. lol. Bruce Ernest is 15, and works at Tree Top Ranch. Grampapa thinks it is too hard for a young lad, but then we are the Grandparents, you know. Nettie is soon to be 11, I have been able to have her with me quite often lately and have enjoyed her so much. Now that her mom is home I do miss her coming over. Kayla is 12 and her mothers right hand and her baby sisters 2nd mama. Kalli is going to be 8 this month and has become a good helper right along with her big sister, Kayla. Kalli is tender spirited and quite attached to "mama". Kammy loves to spend time out here with us and often tells me that I love her better than her guys !! LOL My answer, " Yes, I love you best, I love Kayla, Kalli, Kaite, Jared, Bruce Ernest & Nettie best !! Kaite is Kaite, what else can I say? She has had quite a little struggle with her first year of life. She is soooooo cute, though, that it just makes up for all her badness !! :)
Well, if you have enjoyed this little chat, fine, if not, I guess you do not have to read it. LOL
Until next time the Braggin GramPapa is signing off.
