OK, Breathe, catch your breath!! Whew! Ok that is better!! I haven't really posted this week so I will do Thankful Thursday next week.

Of course I am so very thankful that our trip went so well and we were safe and no one got sick!! Nancy did really good on our trip... This is what Karen did... She made Nancy the Map girl!! She had a big map in front of her on the back of my chair in the van, Karen would call out Map Girl and she would hand it to me or Karen! It made her so proud to do this!! She was grinning and happy as could be!!!

I was Trash Lady and everyone gave me their trash and I had a sack on the floorboard by my feet for this !! Kelly was Snack Girl or Pack Mule is what she said!

She handed out the snacks and pop you know the drill!!

I know by now you all have heard that I fell in LOVE with ocean the minute I saw it!! This is how I feel about it..... It goes on and on and on forever just like God's Love!! It was just awesome!! I would love to live near the beach!! All my kids said, "Mom that is why everyone wants to live there"!!! My son Bill said ,"Mom be sure and see the sun set on the beach" ,but it rained that evening....... But the next morning we did see the Sunrise and took some great shots of this!!

This was the week we had to go up to Kansas U. Medical Center for Nancy's checkup on Tuesday. The Doctor said Nancy lungs sounded a lot better!! This was good news.... She is taking a nap and has been sleeping a lot since we got home because she is still very tired!! Me too!! :) Not as tired as the first of the week!!

We were up early this morning because I thought this was the day for her fasting blood sugar at our local Doctors office! We got there and found out she is to see the Dr in Oct!! opps!!! So we came home!! I got mixed up some how!! :)

I sure do appreciate every one going over to Traveling Grams and leaving comments and reading our blog about our trip!!

Bloggers are the Best!!!

Love how everyone was given a job to do on the trip! lol I've only been to the ocean once and I loved it too, I could sit on the beach staring at the water for hours on end:-) xox

LOL! I had read at Karen's that she was the Pack Mule... but I didn't know you and Nancy had jobs too! LOL! That is so funny! I'm sure it made Nancy feel VERY important! :) Yes... we would ALL like to live at the beach! Well... most of us I think! My hubby would really like more to be on a lake... with a mountain in the background!

Sounds like a great trip (nice perspective on the ocean, by the way!). You need the usual "vacation after a vacation." I still can't get over how cute you and your page are!

Thanks for the update! It sounds like everyone had a wonderful time. I'm glad you were able to see the sunrise at the ocean- although I do have to agree with your son, you've got to see the sunset.
