This past year, I've learned more about creating a family tree on the Family Search website sponsored by the LDS Church. In May, when we held our Family Reunion, I had missionaries from the church come and conduct a brief presentation of their projects ongoing all over the world to connect everyone. It was quite interesting and fun to see others take advantage of what I already knew was a good project! The missionaries have been assisting me here in my archives for several months now, and it's been helpful in many ways. They will be here for another 10 or so months, and we have more ideas for projects in the coming fall! I've been posting photographs of the family to my tree online, and will share some of those family photographs here on the blog.

Summer 2016

It's nearly August! And I've not posted in the longest time! Seems the more I long to blog, the longer I seem to put it off! Just this past weekend, I have gained a daughter! Son got married at the beach and it was a lovely time! Now, I have two married children, and a third who seems determined to remain single! We had a good brief time together though, and was thankful I was able to attend! I am envious of folks who seem to be able to take a vacation at the drop of a hat--whereby I have to plan and schedule and plan and scrimp just to take one day off! One day! I promise myself! One day! If it wasn't for the children living elsewhere, I guess I'd never go anywhere! Except they live so far away, traveling is rather difficult to plan when one has to travel alone! As I get older, I tend not to want to do that much. The upside of that is you don't have to please anyone but yourself! I'll scan some photos and place on here so that others can see my beautiful children and the views we had for the day!~
