Happy News

Sorry I have been so lazy that I have not blogged this week.  We have been pulling things together to get ready to go to Florida to see the kids and the family tree has taken more time than I thought it would.   Joe called this evening with the best news ever –  He is going to be a grandfather in July!!  It is hard to believe that my baby is to be a grandfather!  Nate graduates from college in May and becomes a father in July.  Liz will go to college part time after the baby is born so she can graduate also and Nate has a job offer already.  He has been working with the police force there at the college and will go with them full time after graduation.  He gets a chance to work and also go to college to get his masters degree.  He has it all in line, we are so proud of him.  Now I have something else to do, knit.  I have started on an outfit for the new baby and will make many more before July.    Shanti called just before Joe so I have not told her yet about his news, so this will surprize her also.  She is home and will be here Friday.  Can’t wait, we can visit all the way to Florida.  Have a great day.

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.

    Congrats on your Happy News! Sounds like you are going to be busy, but that really isn’t anything new. Where do you go in Florida? We wish you safe travels when you go. Hope for a nice winter. Keep in touch. ♥

    • Thank you. I have the first tiny sweater ready to send out to Liz this week and am working on a larger one now. We go to Port St Lucie. That is on the east coast just up from Stuart and West Palm. Our daughter Patty lives there as does her daughter and the family and our grandson Thomas with his family. We are located right in the middle of the triangle of the three families. I can’t wait to get down and see the great grand kids. I will try to blog each day while I am there and will keep in touch with you, no fear. Have a good winter.
