Welcome to Friendship Friday Link Up! Here you will find a gathering place of mostly special needs families, families with chronically ill members, and homeschoolers, but you don’t have to be one of the above to share!

I value our online friendships and appreciate your support!

I love to hear all about your week and enjoy learning from you!

The highlight of our week was when our son Brian, his wife, and our sweet little grandson came up for a visit for a few days!

Unfortunately, our grandson ended up having an upset tummy and got a fever their first night here. I felt so terrible for him! However, the next day he felt well enough for a visit to the Fly Creek Cider Mill. He enjoyed seeing the ducks and geese and playing on the little playground there.

Exhausted at the cider mill!

When asked who his favorite uncle was, our grandson answered, “Grandpa!”

Later that night our other son Josiah and his girlfriend Katy joined us for a cookout and bon fire. Malcolm blew up the giant soccer ball that our fellow blogger friends over at Cully Gage gave us when we had the privilege of meeting in person last summer!

It was then (and after a few beers) that the party really started!

As you can, see even our grandson and the old man got into the act!

Yesterday I had the awesome privilege of meeting two friends for lunch at Panera Bread! I brought Rachel with me and we made a day of it eating out and shopping.

On the way home we got a call from Rebekah who had just been hired at our local pharmacy but she still had a job interview at the local pizza place. She decided to bring Rachel to the pizza place interview and explain that she had just gotten hired at the pharmacy but that her sister was interested in the waitress job. Rachel got hired on the spot so they both have jobs now!

We are planning to end our staycation with one more trip to the beach for the season! Hopefully the weather will cooperate!

  2. It looks like a wonderful time with family that everyone could enjoy. And that soccer ball is too cool! Congrats on all the new jobs in the family as well! Have a great week.

  3. Looks like you had a great weekend with your family. I can’t believe the size of that soccer ball or the fact that it could hold your husband, very cool.
