Been awhile



It has been a busy time lately. Fruit has been coming off so was time to start putting by all the goodies. We have been eating from the garden now. ....and kids and grands have been out a lot. Then had major problem with the tooth that broke off early spring. Seems the root died..And of course it happens on a Thursday night and most dentists are not open on Fridays. So I lumped along until Monday and when I called, I found out my dentist was on vacation until Monday June 26. I then called their standby dentist and they did not know my clinic was closed for the week so they did not have any openings. I then called 9 different dentists in 2 days. Most would not have openings. The oral surgery unit in Hot Springs charged over $700 and that was just the starting price to pull the tooth. Finally one of the other local clinics I had called and had told me they would call me if they had cancelation. They called at 1:30 on Wednesday and I had to be there at 2...15 miles away but we made it there and the tooth that was supposed to be a minor removal wound up being oral surgery and they had to drill it out...took 2 hours but at least it was only $300 and not over $700. 
In the midst of all this, our church has had VBS every evening. I had signed to work but with so much pain I only got to help out on Thursday in the kitchen. Then last night the kids had their program. Two of our granddaughers were in it and did the hand motions to music...they had a blast all week.

Our pew with our grands sitting spot.
There were so many kids and parents and grandparents that we had to pull out extra chairs to sit along the sides and back.

Our pastor is so full of energy. His wife was the coordinator for the entire week and they both did a terrific job. Since weather was rather warm, he had his head shaved and the cap he wore had a built in wig. Our granddaugher is behind him in this photo.
