Hello my Little Friends~

OMGees! I had no idea that having momma home would be so hard. The kids and I have been at momma's almost everyday for 12 - 15 hours a day. By the time I get home cook and do a little house work, I crash in my chair. I have no idea what we are looking at after these 3 weeks, because momma is not regaining her strength like the Dr thought she would. She is getting where she is falling a lot and that it self scares me. I was able to talk my oldest niece to stay with momma all day Saturday for I could go to Jackson and watch the boys in Teen Talent. (I have video, but haven't had time to up load)
I was and AM so proud of my babies and the other teens. Our teens won 1st place in group skit. My oldest Aron won 3rd place in Bible Trivia. He was going up against 18-19 year olds and he was way a head on the Bible part, but when they get to the Doctrine part and World Missionaries of our church, Aron lost to the girl by one point. He did very well playing his guitar, but didn't win. I'm still just as proud. He is 14 and was competing against 18 -19 year olds. He has 2 more times to be able to compete because Teen Talent is every two years. My Josh won 1st place in textiles. The other boy won 1st place in ceramics and oil painting. One of the girls won 1st place in the Human Video and the other girl won 1st in Poetry. I enjoyed the whole trip except Aron fell and hurt his arm the night before competition. He was unable to do drama, but was able to do the skit and play his guitar.
I really miss being online and all my friends! Hopefully we can get our lives back to some kind of normal soon. Until then take care and thank you all for caring and thoughts.

I'm glad for the update, I have been thinking of you.

It's great that you got to go see your kids shine.. and I hope you have a few more breaks in your future.

Your mom is awfully lucky to have you to look out for her.

so much on your plate.
Perhaps mama needs some in home nursing in addition to what you can do for her

I am happy to know the kids are doing well. Their accomplishments have hopefully brightened your week.

Perhaps your mother would benefit from some additional care? It is a good thing you are doing by being there for her, but maybe having someone with her at night would be helpful too.

What a talented group of kids. You must be very proud. I'm so glad you were able to get some time to see them perform.

I'm glad for the update and keeping you in my thoughts.

Hugs.

Thanks for the update. We had a busy week and I didn't get around to visit before now. I am so sorry you are having such a time with your momma. I know you don't mind because you love her and that makes it easier, but I know you can get so very tired from it all. Keep up the good work. You are in my prayers. Thanks for the visit today.
