A short walk down memory lane. This is Norman and I with Celina and Alec last year at Tom’s house. I don’t have very many pictures of Norman. We took pictures for over 66 years but they are all of the kids or me or the places we were visiting but very few are with Norman. Only the ones someone else took because Norman always ran the camera. We have lots of home movies and it is the same there Norman always took to pictures, I never tried. The picture taking was as much a man thing as the controls for the TV, some things were his domain and I never argued about it. Now I am sorry as I would like more pictures of him and it is too late for me to take them. If any of you have good pictures of Dad how about sharing them with me? I do take any I find on face book but there aren’t too many out there.
We had a very good day today. Luke and I made country biscuits and Landen says they came out great. I can’t eat them because they are made with wheat. I have tried making them with the rice flour but I don’t like them very much and it isn’t worth the time and effort to make them just for me. Besides I don’t want to gain the weight that I have finally lost so don’t want any bread products.
We did a little school work but I didn’t push him too much today. He did some reading and is doing well with that and his cursive writing to getting very good. He knows most every word he needs so don’t have to ask how to write words anymore and he can read the cursive so when I am gone to Florida I can write to him and keep him in practice. We always do the spelling and written sentences and then diagraming the sentences he writes which reviews the parts of speech with him. He likes doing that, making up the sentences is not his favorite part, diagraming is.
Nice day today, the sun was out and all the snow is gone here. There is still some on the mountains but at least Joe could drive over the mountain without any problem, maybe spring is on the way. Joe says they are working on the fruit trees already. I will miss the spring blooms and I am sorry for that but I will get to see the sea again soon. This will have to do for now. Thanks Becca. Have a great day.
