|Boomer and Odie meet each other for the first time.|
|Even Joan enjoyed the dog cuddles!|
|Bradleigh and Odie|
Karen was on call, still working at St. Joe's, so John showed up with Jacob only. Apparently he gave Bradleigh lots of time to get ready and when she wasn't he left home without her. I was ready to get in my car and go get her, when she showed up in her car! Now, she's been driving, with an adult since last August. She doesn't officially have a license to drive by herself, so I breathed a prayer of gratitude that she made it over here without incident. Then I heard Duane, Karen, and John telling each other their stories of illegal driving. Duane had a lawn mowing job when he was 14 and he drove our old Datsun pickup around the Clarkston Heights - gratefully without incident!
The boys gave this grandma the gift of a picture, this year - with the dogs!!
We were pretty full of ham and cheesy potatoes so we hopped in the car and enjoyed a walk along the levee while Duane and Colin rode their bikes. At the end of the day I agreed with the Easter Psalm response: This the the day the Lord has Made, Let us Rejoice and Be Glad! Alleluia!!
