Happy Birthday Jane!

We have had a lot of birthdays lately in our family.  Jane had a birthday the other day but we were most fortunate to celebrate Jane's birthday early.  Jane and her family visited last week.

Celebrating Jack's 13th Birthday at BJ's Last Week

Last week we were visited by Jane, Ben and Jake.  Jake was on spring break and since it was also Easter what a better time to come.  They made part of their time here a golf vacation and were joined by several members of our family and friends at various times.  We also celebrated Jack, Brent, Jane, and a couple other family friend's birthdays.

Tuesday Bob started a study at UT using electrotherapy trans-cranial stimulation.  They are exercising his arm and hand during the process.  There have been successful results in other studies. Bob has been a little sore from moving his arm and hand in ways he has not done before.  I really have high hopes this will make a difference.

February Birthdays: Angie and Peyton

Last night Jack's team "the frogs" took the championship in the play-offs.  I attended three of his last games and they were so intense.  Those eleven and twelve year old kids were as fun to watch as any professional game.  Congratulations to Jack's team.  They worked very hard to achieve their goals.

A Huge Gap Between Posts

Wow!  There is a huge gap between my last post and now.  To catch up a little we celebrated Christmas Eve at Angie and Brent's house and Christmas at John and Casey's. After Christmas We headed for Florida for a long vacation.  Our first stop was in Crestview Fl.  We were there for a couple of days and spent New Years Eve with my sister Beverley and her husband Joe.  On the 1st we checked into a Time Share for a week at New Smyrna Beach and from there we rented a house in House in Haines City Fl.  We had several visitors at different times.  We also visited many friends and family. I am not going to get into details and I didn't take many pictures.  Later I may randomly post some of the pictures I did take. It was great to get away and as with most people's feelings it is always good to be home.

The birthdays for February in our family were Peyton and Angie. Since Peyton has been at college and Angie was out of town on business we will celebrate later.  I'll  try and get some pictures.  I have really been slacking a bit with the pictures but that is what vacations are for. We were really needing to do nothing.

It looks like Bob is going to be in a new study at UT.  It will be using electricity on his brain to hopefully improve his use of his hand and arm.  Other studies have shown some success.  I am sure I will have more information regarding this in the near future.

Last week I had a birthday and my kids had the best party ever.  Our daughter Jane and her family flew down from Chicago. They went all out and I felt so blessed and thankful for such a loving family and group of friends.  The food was wonderful!  Casey and John hosted it at their home and several people contributed with the food.  They put a video together with several pictures of me in the different stages of my life.  Getting older sometimes is difficult to come to terms with but I am thankful to be here and thankful for such a wonderful family and friends.
