Last Friday we went with Harry and Sue to Bok Gardens here in Lake Wales.. It is BEAUTIFUL .... 50 acres of flowers and trees and bushes.... also the tower with chimes sounding every hour...
The tower in the back ground..
The pond.... usually ducks and swams
Believe it... it did get cold last Friday and here we are at the Gardens wearing jackets.
The other Sower couple... Sue and Harry Lawrence from the pan handle of Florida .. They are so easy to work with and we have a lot of fun....
We have decided to enlarge our lanai so we hired a company to pour more cement , build a roof and replace all the screen... They are doing a good job and we are pleased so far... We had to cover up the pool because of the dirt off the roof... It should be complete by this week so we are planning a Sunday school class Christmas party in Dec... I'll soon be posting a picture of the new lanai !!!!
We are presently on a Sower project at Lake Wales Care Center. They have a variety of programs to help the homeless and needy... We are camped at Lake Aurora RV Park in the middle of the orange grooves...
Tim and I at Devotions .. This is the other couple's RV.. We are camped in a little camper...Sure is different from our BIG diesel pusher .

Michigan for 3 weeks !!!

While we were spending 3 weeks on vacation in Michigan, we decided to buy a small camper... yes small.... 21 feet... but it does have a bathroom and 2 beds and a big table and small kitchen... a.c.... It pulls easy with the used van we just bought from friends in Mi. We drove a rental car up from Florida.. We have been busy visiting friends and family and attending Heman's Family Camp for 8 days..... We fly back to Florida on Wednesday for 3 weeks and fly back to Mi. again in August to attend 2 Reunions.... Then the plans are to drive our van and camper back home to Fl. It has been a busy summer so far. We are taking our 14 year old grand daughter Elizabeth with us to Fl. when we fly back........... for a 3 week vacation !!!!
Our new ( used ) van... LOVE it !!!!!

Michigan ... cold and rainy !!!!

We are in Michigan at daughter Kristy's in West Branch.. It is sure colder and rainier than sunny Florida !!! We leave tomorrow to go down to Heman's... our church camp near Marlette in the Thumb... We have had a very busy past month as our grand daughter Andrea was VERY sick and in the hospital for 4 weeks.... I spent some time up there so Kari and Ben could work. She is doing much better now and even went swimming in our pool the other day !!! PTL !!!! We stopped in Tn. on our way to Michigan to meet daughter Kathi and drop off Christian. He spent 53 days with us in Florida.. Boy did we have a good time !!! He is one easy boy to have around... and we miss him.... Won't be able to blog when we are at camp but hope to have some good pictures after that..

I can see that people do not post as much as they used to... is it FB or just too busy?? We have been having a great time with Christian ... He has been in the pool EVERY day is his goal. He has been home schooled so every day we have been reading and doing a lot of math.... He is always anxious of his cousins to come over and swim but they are in public school.... so that is not always easy. Tim has been painting at our pastor's house... Abby is finishing her schooling. She will graduate with a 4.00 !!!!! Still not sure what our summer brings... A trip to Michigan !!!
