Danny and Jena

Over 25 years ago, Ron and I became acquainted with a young man at church named Danny Grant. He and Ron played softball together and we were very happy when he met and decided to marry a young lady named Jena Roberts. They became part of our family and as their family grew, Ron and I became honorary "grandparents" to all 8 children. That's right, 8 children.

Our lives have been blessed by this wonderful family and on September 10, Danny and Jena celebrated their 25th wedding anniversary.

Today we joined with their family in celebrating this wonderful occasion.

Running and Counting

Eli is into running and counting and he got PawPaw into the act. His excitment while counting was worth a video and take note of the end of the video. He put all his alphabet letters down to create a starting line.

Labor day weekend Ron and I got to spend some time with Josh, Nikki and Eli.

Shopping is one of the things we (Nikki and I) do the best and Eli got to spend some time at the indoor play area at North Point Mall.

A trip to the mall wouldn't be complete without a ride on the carousel. Eli can spot them instantly.

I'm so glad he enjoys riding.

Pancakes for Softball

As most of you know, Burt is the History teacher
at East Ridge Middle School but he is also the
girls Softball Coach (among other titles).
For several years Applebees has graciously
opened their facility to let the kids serve pancakes to parents, teachers, guests and anyone who is willing to donate to help sponsor their team expenses.
The food was great as usual and the girls did a great job in serving and cleaning up. We really enjoyed ourselves as usual.
Here are the rest of the pics from the breakfast. WAY TO GO COACH!
