Our long week....

Last Tuesday my mom had surgery and she is home and doing well.  I am so thankful for all the prayers.

Some of these roses are still pretty in my back yard

Baby Jordan my great nephew is also doing very well.  He is continuing to grow and is getting so much love from his mom Gaylene.

Wednesday evening was out first bible study.  Our first meal together with our new group.  When we signed up I knew we had an older bunch of folks.  We were the youngest by far take or give 25 to 30 years.  The leaders and hosts were so worried that we would have something to talk about.  Ha...we had a hard time leaving we were chatting so much.   It is so wonderful to have a great fellowship and study the bible with good Christians. 

Thursday morning bright and early Jeremy (our son) arrived to start ripping off the old shingles.  He is such a hard worker and a blessing.   Once Marvin got home from work Jeremy and him headed to the dump.  He left his car parked in the street and while he was gone someone backed into it.

Ouch.....the 16 year old kid knocked on the door but no one was home.  He was attempting to leave when the neighbor stopped him and asked him for his information.  We were able to get a hold of him and he and his dad returned later that evening to exchange information.  It did about 1000.00 worth of damage.

Jeremy worked all day on Friday too.  Sara, Kayla and Morgan joined us Friday evening after the girls got out of school.  Ricky and Holly arrived later that evening so we were packed full.  6 adults, 2 kids, 3 dogs and 2 cats. 

Early Saturday morning the roofing party began. 
Look at the pretty blue hot sky. 

my daughter in law Sara also helped in anyway she could by picking up dog poop, to getting water, tools, sweeping. picking up trash and watching over everyone to make sure they did not need anything.

Ricky and Jeremy taking a break
 Here is Holly taking a break too
 Kayla and Morgan stopped for a quick picture
Marvin taking a break and "waving to me"  He was so hot, I was worried about him at this point.  Finally he came down and went in the house to get cooled off and watch the start of the Nebraska game.   You can see how cloudy it was getting. 

They finished the roof about 7:00 except Jeremy and Marvin had to run back to Jerry's to get a few more shingles.  It was dark by the time the got back up there on the roof with flashlights but they needed to finish since rain was in the forecast.
The Oregon Duck game started shortly after 7 and Morgan had to sit by Uncle Ricky to watch the game. 

I am so thankful for my family.  They helped so much.  Oh, I cooked and cleaned up the mess.

What a day of work! It was so good that none were so tired they coudn't watch the game!!

I'm so blessed to hear that your mom's surgery went well. I'm continuing to pray for her recovery as well as for Gaylene and precious baby Jordan's continued growth.

The LORD bless you all this week,
