My Grammie Connie died. She was my mother’s step-mother. My whole life she and Grandpa Hobart lived out west at the Grand Canyon and Pahrump, Nevada. I was never as close to them as my other grandparents based solely on proximity. I would write Grammie Connie letters a few times a year, the last I received was earlier this year. And up until the last 10 years they would visit most summers. The last time I saw them was when I went out to Las Vegas in May of 2007. We had a nice visit, went to lunch, and they got to meet Canaan. They’ve never met Addison and I doubt Grandpa Hobart ever will, he seems determined to stay in Pahrump even though he had no family there at all.
Everything seems to be falling together for us finding a new place to live. The bank that is foreclosing on the home basically told us we could live there through the winter as it wasn’t being sold until February. I don’t want to buy and oil for it though, so I’m trying to limp through with what we have. A place we live on Oak St in Gardiner looks like it’ll be ours come first week of November. It’s a little bit more a month, but heat is included so awesome!!
Baby Labbe is coming along smashingly, at the time of this posting it is the size of an avocado. We had an appointment Monday and heard the strong healthy heartbeat along with some kicking and moving around. It was fantastic! We have an appointment next month to hopefully find out the sex.
Aunt Carolyn was ordained as the pastor of the Water of Life Lutheran Church in Newcastle this past Sunday. It was quite an interesting event to witness first hand. It was nice to see the whole family there, including Aunt Linda up from Maryland to share in the moment.
Kate and I hit Fat Boy for the last day of their 2014 season, such a fantastic place! Looking forward to next March.
