Life Takes Over

Wow, It's been awhile since I've taken "pen to paper" (so to speak) So much family stuff has been happening! Mother's Day weekend had us helping Jim's folks move into town from their cabin on the Stillwater. It was a beautiful landscape with boundless memories for Jim's parents, Jim himself and of course, our children. It was a sad time to leave, but at the same time, a time of hope since they will be closer. Honestly, I think, the grandkids will miss it the most. When they would come, it was just playtime. No work for them getting ready for camping and campfires. They loved sitting around the campfire, with Uncle Joe and Jim playing their guitars, singing the old songs. Grandpa Les inevitably blowing on the harmonica or accordian (yes, accordian)
To commemorate the move, Uncle Joe presented a beautiful picture-perfect painting of the view of the land and the river.

Since then, we've been doing plenty of helping out at their new place, lots of putting the kitchen away, adding shelving, deciding what stays up and what can go down! Whew, we're still not done! (Honestly, It's mostly Jim doing the doing)
