It's raining!

Yup, as I write this I am listening to the rain fall on the roof. Note, that reminds me of a song from college..The raindrops fall upon the roof....sigh...

Let's see. Since my last missive what have we done? Oh, Jon was a part of a Pipes and Drums thing at the HS. Steve always goes to the games (I don't, just because I figure it is fun for him to meet all the kids he used to go to school with!) and so he took pictures of our boy. I also tend to stay home because Jon plays for a short time and I find it hard to spend 4 dollars to only get to see Jon for a few minutes. I may go next year.

(I had to 'fix' this first photo cuz it was in the gym..)

Later this month I had my Sunday school class practice some first aid with the story of the good Samaritan. I think the boys had fun and I deduced that if I am ever in an accident, not to call the boys. They re enacted the story from start to finish four times, including trussing up a victim, in a little over 15 minutes. On the other hand, they would get the job done fast!

Reading lots of Anne McCaffrey books.

Happy Belated Birthday to my baby....

I was going to do what Noelle did and post a baby photo of Jon, but I am not sure where the cutest one is...I will keep looking. And I still cannot find the instruction CD for the scanner, so need to get pictures put on a disk at a store. As I said, stay tuned! Anyway, here is our celebration of his 15th birthday. NOTE: he did NOT get his permit yet..I am not sure if this is good or bad!
Here is Moses fleeing from Nana's present in the hands of Jon. Moses did try to stalk it a few times!
Here he is blowing out his candles. (On a interesting note, he plays a bari sax very well and STILL managed to leave one candle burning!)
The second photo is a new shirt that Nana sent. We all thought it would be large, but as you can see, it is not bad at all! He also got a watch that is totally cool!!!!!!!! It is on a carabiner thing, and I hope that is the right word, and hooks on his belt loop. Tony had one like it, but not quite.
Books being read: Anne McCaffrey! It is my February read..well, except for Feb 14 when Tracy and I read The Blue Castle.

the end of January....

The end of January was beautiful..we had freezing fog, which is very pretty. After that there was a day of soft, fluffy magical snow. It made the world even more beautiful than it was before! Moses on the other hand, was not as impressed. He decided to climb a tree and got stuck. Needless to say, he got down by himself..after I hauled the ladder out and over to the tree. The snow and frost vanished fairly rapidly and left us with spring.

The tree across the road and one near a friend's house.

I wanted snow for my birthday, but it did not happen. Oh, well...I did find a couple of teeny tiny daffodil spears sticking up through the hard ground and if I can't have snow, I will take daffodils!

Finally got to read The History of the Snowman by Bob Eckstien. You MUST find it and read it. It is a wonderfully intellectual and fun read.
