Here’s Crystal with a loaf of bread she made. The girls made it daily (they said) while Bob and I were in Colorado Springs in late July. I’ve been making bread myself daily now for a couple weeks. I really like doing it. I don’t know if it saves me any money, but it’s fun. There also aren’t any preservatives in it. The main reason I do it though is because I really ENJOY preparing food for people to eat instead of just buyng it ready made. I got that from my mom and grama. Especially my grama. Her whole life revolved around preparing food, and in her 80’s, she is still preparing food for others.
Today is a great day to post since it is Danielle’s 8th birthday. . :). . . So here is a picture of our “baby”. . . Poor Bob won’t be home until tomorrow to celebrate with us, but she had a great day anyway as she opened Grammie and Pap’s gifts. The dress we all LOVED (my mom has great taste), and she immediately put it on, but it is a tad tight. Nevertheless it stayed on all day, even though it MUST go back to Kohl’s.
In case you’re wondering. . . we still haven’t found a house here to buy. Finally, a couple of days ago, I started asking God if maybe He doesn’t want us to buy a house here? (Duh? After 17 months of looking for a house?) Might make sense. I am trying to hear His voice. Alissa is wearing out Crystal by getting her to help her study for a World Literature test. Bethie went to Girls’ chorus practice. Crystal worked on her Biblical Foundations course (it’s an online course she is taking from Bryan College. . although she has not def. decided that’s where she wants to go for college. We’re leaving that up to her.)
Other than those activities, it was a special girl’s birthday day.
