The 13th already...

This year is flying by.

Unfortunately it has started out with some sad news. Adam's grandmother passed away yesterday morning. She had been sick for the past few months and eventually her heart just stopped working. She passed comfortably with Joe and Sandy beside her. If you feel so inclined, please send a few prayers to Joe and Mary (grandma's son and daughter). Losing a parent is hard, no matter the age.

In the G world it's the usual. Chase and I spend time with friends, at the Little Gym, at the library and running errands. Adam spends too much time on I-70 and time at the office. Chase's graduation from Little Gym (this semester) is on Thursday and everyone is going to see him. I suspect there will be a video to follow... just a hunch. I have been trying more in the kitchen. I made a dinner with more than one component (pork chops and potato fries)... not my favorite thing since timing is difficult. I am finding that with anything, practice makes perfect. The more I do something, the better and faster I get at it. Who knew.

Chase amazes me everyday. I may have said that before but I don't know if I really meant it. Lately it seems he learns something new every day. He has a few signs under his belt... he is learning parts of the face and a few body parts. He smiles and laughs so much it makes me melt. He really is just the coolest kid ever.

I'm sorry for your loss.

Yeah, Frodo just discovered his privates yesterday. I think we are in for a world of fun now, because he wants to play with it!

Sorry for you loss. I will definitely lift your family up in prayer.

It is the coolest thing to see your kids learn. Sometimes you can just see those little wheels turning in their head as they are figuring stuff out.
