On a happier note....


My friend Beverly keeps calling me and telling me it's time for a happier picture! Well here it is. This is Tim six years after the last post in all of his healthy glory. I was telling Beverly that I have to buy him men's medium shirts now! He's just growing too much! This was taken today. That's Mackenzie next to him. Britt and family came over for Easter.

I'm sorry I haven't been around much lately. I have been so busy. Besides school, home, motherhood...grandmotherhood etc., I'm also taking a graduate course and I just can't seem to find the time for everything!

I do have vacation next week so that ought to give me a chance to catch up. I also only have 44 days left of school. Can you see my big old smile!

Don't forget me! I'll be back soon.

take care,
Dawn

You know, I was going to e-mail you tomorrow...I figured you were probably just crazy busy, but I was starting to worry about you. Glad you all had a nice family Easter today! And I really, really, really hope you can relax and enjoy your spring break!!!! Is it really only 44 days of school left? When's your last day? If I'm remembering right, it's pretty close to the last day here. (Or at least it was last year.)

Anyway, soooo good to hear from you, Dawn!

Hi Dawn,
It's good to see you posting....I thought about emailing you too!

Tim is such a handsome young man. It is hard to believe how fast all the kids grow!

Happy Easter Dawn
I have been wondering how you are and was very happy to see that everything is good and you've just been busy.."just" she says.
I hope you've had a lovely day. McKenzie and Tim are so big! That IS a much better picture of Tim.
Keep in touch periodically and you are so lucky the beginning of a summer break soon...*s*.

Hi Dawn, it's great to hear from you, love the picture of Tim. I know how busy you are, but as you say, summer's coming soon!

jeanne said...

Hurray!!! Dawn's back. I have really missed having my morning coffee with you. I know you are busy if you are taking a graduate course along with all of your other responsibilities. Tim is really growing but that's what kids do. I am always surprised when I see my grands after a few months every year, as they always are so much more grown up. He is so handsome.

The school year has flown by. Is it time to go shopping for containers? BIG smile.

Hugs...Jeanne

I don't know if that's a smile I see; I think it's a pair of praying hands!

Well, it looks as if a lot of other people are happy to see a new post from you, too. ;-)

Great job, girlie.

I'm just getting back to my blog, too, after being away for too long. Life just got too crazy there for awhile. I only have about 30-some days left...I can see the light at the end of the tunnel! Good luck on your grad class! :-)

Madam Zelda E said...

Good luck with school. Remember to take a few minutes each day for yourself.

I've been on a break, Dawn, but I decided to check in today to see how everyone is. Glad to see you'll be back a little more after school ends.

XO,

Sheila

Okay, Dawn. Did you know that today is April 27? It has been fifteen days.

Hi Dawn, Just checking in with you! I read your post below and I am so glad prayers were answered for dear Tim, and that he is alive and healthy. That was some scare!

Hope you and your family are doing well! :) ~hugs, Rhonda

Hi Dawn! I know you're a busy bee these days but I just wanted to "check in" and see how you are doing. I hope all is well with you and your family.
"See" you soon!

I see I am not so far behind after all, since you weren't posting much for awhile there. Catching up should be easy peasy now.
Love the happy picture!
