Candy from Lutheran Social Services came yesterday to go over things for foster care. This time we get to be finger printed! WE signed a lot of things and still have more to do and sign. The next couple of weeks will be hectic, so Candy said she would come back when we are ready. Allison and Chris are coming tonight for the week end. Will be fun!

Erik graduated from Alex Tech last night!!! We are finished with fafsas and tuition until Alair gets there. I have a lady from LSS coming Wednesday about Crisis Nursery. Yeah, we're probably getting back into it. Today we go to German Lake church for their annual spring salad luncheon. Louise and Karen will be there. It's always good food and ususlly entertaining. Next weekend Christine's aunt is giving her a shower. We have to bring underwear for a game!?!?!?

We've got a new granddaughter. Natalie Jean was born on Sunday, at 1:16 am. She weighed 7lbs.6oz. She was due on May23rd, but decided differently. We went up to see her yesterday,and I will get some pictures up soon. This has really stirred up feelings of wanting to get relicensed for foster care. We'll see. Erik went ballistic when I brought it up. I know getting everything ready for the home inspection is a pain. I will know if this is what we should do. I have a little voice that tells me and I have learned to listen to it.

About a year ago, Pastor Mumme's wife, Glenda, ordered a new gold chasable for his anniversary in the ministry. He also said he would like a red one at some time. I said I would like to make it. Then the problems. Where to find a pattern and what fabric. I contacted where Glenda ordered from and they weren't alot of help. Then a few months ago, I saw on Father Hollywood (post in left column),that his wife made him one. I contacted them and got the pattern off the internet. It's discontinued so it was expensive. Then ordered fabric and trim from Gaspard. I finished the garment last week and Pastor Mumme wore it Sunday for confirmation. I had some set backs. The main one being a three year old and a pair of scissors, but we won't go there. It got done and I hope to make several more in other liturgical colors. If you want to see pictures, go to "i shouldn't be doing this" in the column at the left.
Aubrey is due in less than three weeks now and has informed me she is nesting. Emily is feeling some better. hooray!!!!Allison is fine.Apple leaves in less than six weeks now. It will be sad to see her go. Hopefully we get to go to Thailand within a few years to see her.
