Saturday, Gene and I flew up to Portland. I had planned on going for our grandniece Molly's high school graduation, but at the last minute Gene came along. I wish that it was just for the graduation, but our son-in-law John lost his father last week after a long illness and we were there for a mass to celebrate his life too. I am so glad that there have been some bright spots (like births and graduations) in this year, because we have had a lot of sadness to deal with.....
We had not seen our grandkids in a few months and they had grown so much! We took them to breakfast on Sunday to one of their (and our) favorite places....The Cadillac. Sophie highly recommends the Mickey Mouse pancakes!
.....and then we went to visit Megan....The spot where her bench lies is just so peaceful..... her father-in-law will be at rest just a few feet away....
I was able to stay through yesterday with them and Sophie and I spent the day playing. They will be down for a visit in July and get to stay 10 days.....we will have a lot of time for spoiling!
Tonight Pierce and Collin (our oldest grandsons) are receiving Catholic Scouting awards that they have been studying for all year. This time of year really keeps us busy.
Hope you are finding time in your busy lives to sew and stitch....Jo Ann
