Yes, I'm still here. Sorry I haven't posted in a while. I hope everyone had a great Christmas and New Years! We enjoyed the holidays very much. It was nice to spend Christmas with family, and have most of the family together. The time went by too quick though, as usual.
Cody is back in school again. I can't believe the school year is nearing the half way mark already. It seems like it just started! He's really getting into learning about space (i.e. stars, planets, etc.), and also still interested in the presidents and collecting coins. One of the things he got for x-mas was (another) coin book. It's really cool, there are places for newer coins, and really old ones. Both Cody's Grandpa's gave him some really old coins to add to his collection, he was really excited about that!
I haven't been on the computer at all for a couple weeks, as you can tell! I've been doing a lot of crocheting. I thought it would be nice to make some small afghans for some of the kids at the Ronald McDonald House. I came up with the idea a while ago, at one of the Prayer Shawl meetings at church. I have one done already, it's girl colors. I'm working on one now for a boy. When I get that one done, then I will take them down for the children.
Mike's been busy with work, and snow plowing. That extra plowing money is always nice! He finally found a class and an evaluator, so now he's an official Fire Instructor. This will also be nice and bring in some extra money. He's worked very hard to get to this point! I'm very proud of him!
Well, I hope no one gave up on my blog! I will post some pictures of the afghans I've been working on. Until then everyone take care!
Always Have A Dream
Always have a dream
Forget about the days when its been cloudy,
but don't forget your hours in the sun.
Forget about the times you've been defeated,
but don't forget the victories you've won.
Forget about mistakes that you can't change now,
but don't forget the lessons that you've learnt.
Forget about misfortunes you encounter,
but don't forget the times you luck has turned.
Forget about the days when you've been lonely,
but don't forget the friendly smiles you've seen.
Forget about the plans that didn't seem to work out right,
but don't forget to always have a dream.
