Family Fun !!

The family arrived yesterday afternoon.  It was so good to see everyone.  The twins have grown so much and they are so much more mobil than they were four months ago.  They are still just as good but poor James is not well.  He has a fever and mother thinks he is teething.  It is fun just to hold an cuddle him but wish he could get feeling better.  Colby is as jolly and good natured as always and Gina is Gina!  We just sat and visited yesterday.  Today Becca and Chris have taken Gina to Rock Island to the beach and we are all three baby sisting the boys.  With three adults and two babies, now that both babies are asleep I get a chance to write just a little.   Today we picked a big batch of beets and there are still many left.  They seem to be an unending supply but I know they will end soon.  Gina loves picking and eating the blueberries.  She had never seen blueberries on the bush before and is just amazed.    I will try to finish July on yesterday’s blog.

About Carol (Ouma) Petts

I am a retired teacher. I have taught all levels from kindergarten through college and have been retired now for over 20 years. The last ten years we have lived on a farm and lived off the land, growing our own food and canning for our extended family. Now we have sold the farm and are moving to Florida to truly retire. I guess I have always had a short attention span as this is our 11th move. We have moved from a small farm in New Hampshire, to more city type living, small business adventures, focusing more on traveling, Florida living, Georgia, and Tennessee farming and now back to Florida. My blog is a way to keep my children up to date on what I am doing and letting them know I am still alive and well. My children are spread across the country from New England to Florida, Nova Scotia to New Mexico and CA and several places between, They let me know what they are up to by commenting on my blog but they are so busy with their own lives most times I have to assume " no news is good news". Now I are starting on a new adventure so will try to give daily updates until we get settled into a routine. Then I know even if I am getting older and should settle down I will start looking for some new and exciting adventure to start. Welcome aboard. Norman died Oct 30, 2017 so I am continuing the journey alone with the aid of my children, grand children and great grand children. At present I am living with my daughter and we are 7 in one house and cover four generations. We range in age from 7 to 85 and are finding common ground, we are living proof that multi generations can live and function in a three bedroom house if they really want to. Soon my grandson will have his house built next door so we all will have a room of their own except for the seven year old twins who by choice will share a room.
