September is almost here. The unofficial end of summer it is said. But what a beautiful summer it has been. Lots of family parties. We had two high school graduations and one college graduation. A couple of showers, one a bridal shower and the other a baby shower. Both for two granddaughters. The 60 birthday party of a son-in law. The July wedding of Kayla and Casey. The whole family was able to come and celebrate that special day, all thirty one of us together at one time is always a very fun time. We also had a first for our family, the ordination or our grandson as Youth Pastor of his church. We ended the summer with a wonderful pool party hosted by our four daughters for our 55 wedding anniversary, again with everyone able to come.
