I know I have been missing for a few days and I thought I would check in so that you know that I am all right. I lost my brother a week ago Tuesday and his funeral was last Friday. All of the brothers and sisters were there excepting for one sister who has health issues which was good for ten of us. We have nine of us remaining. It was hard but I made it through the day. Right now I am trying to be strong for my daughter-in-law who's father is in hospice. I have been helping her this week however she needs help whether with my two oldest grandsons or just to listen when she needs to talk. I can relate to what she is going through.
I helped her get the car home from the shop last night and she made home made pizza for supper. Talk about something being yummy. Today was field trip day for my middle grandson. He was excited and where he was going they were even going to serve them lunch. He didn't give her any argument about going to bed last night.
It is always amazing how kids know what buttons to push to set their mom's off. The first horse show is about a week away. It is a fun show with games they even have a mystery race. That could be very interesting.
What should the rules be for kids to be able to go on field trips? If they have been a class interruption with being sent to the office, in school suspension, or out of school suspension, should the rest of the class be made to suffer in what they get to do for a field trip. Should they just continue to let them be a disruption. Thank goodness school is just about over.
It is going to be a different summer for me and for which I am very thankful. It will give me a change of scenery. One of the things we will be doing is go to the library so that he can do their reading program. We will get to spend time together that is the main thing.
I went to a kick ball game the other evening watching my youngest grandson play. Two cub scout packs got together for the game. There was only two rules. You could not throw the ball at the runners and to have fun. I don't think they kept score It was an enjoyable evening and the rain held off until it was over. The storms are out there for sure. I worried about my son who was in Oklahoma City this week especially after the tornado sirens and talking about the airport. I knew he was staying close to it, but he called to let mom know everything was all right. Prayers were answered.
Prayers to those in need because they do help us make it through the good and bad. They help us to remember that it is in god's hands. We are all god's children regardless of color, where we are from, and some people need to realize that.
All of you take care and have a good rest of the week. Hugs and Prayers to my blogging family.
