Weekly Wrap Up

Lots going on this week. Some was great and others not so much. We had a busy week as usual with more school work getting accomplished. Grace had the most fun this week with her newest endeavor, the Parakeets. She checked out some books from the library and is trying to start training them. It will be a long process with lots of patience needed.

Grace named them Pocky and Tori which are both Japanese related names. Last night was pretty eventful on many fronts. Grace and Scott went on a walk in Helen which is a touristy area in the Northeast Ga Mountains and is only 15 minutes from home for us. This is where they had the 2nd bear sighting of the year. It was dusk so no pictures, they would have been to dark, and he was walking right in the middle of a parking lot. I was at a Zumba class during all this fun. Then when we all returned home we discovered my mom had taken my dad to the hospital. To make a long story short he was admitted because he blood was too thin due to he blood thinner medication he has been on forever. This could be potentially serious and his numbers last night were in the critical area. He will be in the hospital for the next couple of days.

Prayers for your Dad. I hope he's okay. Looks like y'all have had a busy week! Funny -- I just bought Minecraft for my daughter about 2 weeks ago. She builds random things -- I don't understand it but well she plays it (probably not the correct way) on the iPad! Wishing you a wonderful weekend :) Jen @ Home Is Where They Send Us
