Most of the snow is gone, except for the biggest drifts. Now the yard looks absolutely ugly! Yard is muddy, roads aren't too bad.
Worked at Erwin Strackbein's funeral luncheon yesterday before and after working at the library. We had 11 kids come to story hour plus 2 babies. It was "T" is for turtle day. They made turtles, last week I painted the underside of paper soup bowls green and yesterday they mottled the "shell" with brown and black paint and added construction paper legs, head and tail. Most kids love to paint except those who don't like dirty hands! We fed nearly 75 people at the luncheon, they were eating when I got back to church so I washed dishes, just cups, glasses and silverware as we use paper plates now that we don't have a dishwasher. My hands sure got clean!
We need everyone's prayers and good wishes for Caleb as he leaves for Afghanastan next week. Larry, Ellen & Caitlin are flying out to spend some time with him before he leaves. Vanessa is there with him now. Wish him well and keep him in your prayers.
Sunday afternoon was spent with Donna Schroeder & Georgie (Kroemer) Greiner working on how to make a booklet for our 50th class reunion and what to put in it. Georgie is doing the proofing for me as I type the pages. We finished the evening by going to Happy Joe's for pizza. Georgie & Nick still have sheep and Nick was lambing so it was a short evening. Good to see them again.
Emily is ELEVEN!!!
