He stared at it a long time and said, " That might be a good idea." After going through a period of no garden and no plants, I think I could take out all of the grass with no problem. I don't know though if I would want gravel. One of the things that is new for me is not wearing shoes. At the other house I was forever jumping up and going outside and I would put on my shoes in the morning and not take them off until I was going to bed at night. Here, I stay barefoot. There is no stickers or spiders or even flies really. Not that I am complaining, its just different.
I have a few baby pictures. Would you like to see them? Ben and Megan had a little girl too. So this summer we have two baby girls. Which brings the grand kid count to Six girls and Six boys. I love double sixes. Makenzie has the tie breaker coming in December.
One of our grand daughters when she was little always would say, " No grandpa," Do it by self."
When one of our sons was in college and in the class the teacher had each of the students come up with a motto for their family. Our son said ours was, " Be polite don't fight." I always really like that. But now, I think our family motto has changed to " Do it by Self." As I have watched all of our kids and how they have begun to take on life, that is the one thing I notice the most. They are very self reliant. Is it good? I don't know.
I know as a young woman and I was being interviewed for a leader position in a Bible Study group I wanted so badly to be a part of, the lady interviewing me said, As she pulled off her glasses, " I see a young woman before me very self confident woman. But what I want to see is a very God confident woman instead."
I hope you have a incredible weekend, this Labor Day weekend. I wish you the best.
