I write and write and write. I am looking for authors and down-to-earth people who share my interest and can give a novice, like myself, good advice in this exciting but demanding field. Looking forward to hearing from you. God Bless!

Last day of school

Well, school is officially out for SS Peter & Paul Catholic School. We had mass and the awards ceremony this morning. The kids are eager to start the summer but I'm thinking I'm already tired....haha! I can't believe I'll have a 2nd grader and a 4th grader next year. Time goes by too fast. Vince's class
Michael and Georgie
Mrs. Spence and Michael - what a great teacher Mrs. Spence is!

pickin' & a grinnin'

My Uncle brought back his banjo for me to play with while he was in town. I'm so excited. I've wanted to learn how to play the banjo for years. I know a couple of weeks isn't near long enough to learn anything but at least I'll be able to find out if my interest is real. And, who knows, maybe I'll be able to pic a lit'l at my birthday party...lol! Either way, I'll have fun for a little while.

Visit home

This last weekend was a big one. I left Thursday to attend my oldest niece's bachlorette party. I stayed with my folks and Greg and the boys came down Saturday morning. They had a few things to finish up at the house before they left. My uncle was in from Tennessee, too. I love my Uncle Clarence. He is so wonderful and such a hoot! He has so many stories and jokes to tell. I told him I need to keep a tape recorder around just so I could capture all his stories and funny tales. I need to write a book someday. I could fill the book with just his stories and "one liners". He's so funny.
Anyway, my niece got married and it was a beautiful ceremony and reception. Actually, she had 2 receptions...one at the church and one at my sister's home. I'm so happy for Jessica and Will. They are going to be very happy. I love them both! Here are some pics of our fun-filled weekend.

Mother's Day

I have the best children. They spent the day yesterday with daddy in Arrowrock at a craft show displaying our rocks and when they came home they had bought me Mother's Day presents. I was so touched. Greg had given them both $20 because they helped and did so well at the show. Vince spent $18 of his money buying me this little bear that was made of wax and smelled like vanilla and Michael bought me a ring shaped like a flower. It's beautiful! They also made things from school that touched my heart so much. I love my boys so much and I am so blessed.

Pops 4th Annual Ride

Our wedding anniversary was May 1, 11 years. We spent that weekend visiting family and friends and had a great time. Pops 4th Annual Memorial Ride was Saturday. All the Mojos and friends got together and rode to a couple of places that had been picked to be the usual stops for this particular ride. It turned out to be a beautiful day!! By the end of the day, the sun was shining and we knew Pops was smiling down upon us. :) The rest of the weekend was spent with family and some old Marion friends. What a great way to celebrate our wedding anniversary. It was a great weekend!! Here's the pics to proof it.....
