This week as been an emotional roller coaster. The funeral Friday was rough. My heart just breaks for Lorrie, Ashley and Lorrie and Greg's families. The Funeral was such a fantastic tribute to the amazing person he was though... truly touching . With the huge show of support from the the police, fire and EMT's .. along with the amount of people there, who's lives he had touched.. it was really something. He will be so missed. Please keep Lorrie in your prayers. This is such a hard time for her.
After Friday, it was so great to have Saturday with the big fam to look forward to. The weather certainly went down hill.. but we didn't let that bother us.. we enjoyed ourselves in side. Since my sister and her hubby(from Florida), and my Aunts and Uncle from South Dakota were here for a visit, we rented the same place here, we usually rent for gathering , and spent the day together.
Not everyone could make it , and we sure missed those who couldn't ..but thought of them, as we enjoyed the time we spent together.
I wanted to be able to share the photos with my family... (and you, if you want to see.. of course) lol , but because My computer is dealing me fits.. I couldn't size and edit them. I decided the easiest thing to do, is to upload them to a slide show. The aren't fantastic "photo' quality , by any means. It was a dark , dreary day.. not great of picture taking ..but it was important to capture the day.. so I still took photos of course. Like I said.. some are wonky, because I couldn't edit.. so don't get a neck ache , turning back and forth.. if you look. lol
I just have to end by saying HUGE HUGE thanks to my hubby, Brent, Diana , Nathaniel, Jan and Keith.. who stayed and helped me put class kits together for the classes I'll be teaching in MI , the weekend after next. There is ALOT of kits to be put together, and they knew I was nervous about finding time to get it all done.. so they said... BRING IT.. we'll help!
I am SO lucky to have such a totally supportive bunch of people in my life. As we worked ( and laughed alot).. I couldn't help but think.. what a cool thing we were showing Nathaniel... about what family is really about. I told him that.. and he said.
"We've got your back Aunt Vic".
How could I ask for more than that.
Thank you guys... I love ya!
