Bye Bye

One last group picture of Jason and his family before goodbye
Over the tops of the heads of the people going through the airport security at a distance of about 70 feet we got one last look at Arianna, Lilia, Jason, and Angie waving at me and Janie.  I am sure that Arianna does not understand that we will not be seeing her for a very long time.  It was a sad moment.  At present we plan to make a trip to France to see them in the spring of 2014.  We enjoyed the summer with its many hours of grandchildren time. 
Arianna turns 2 Friday, we partied minutes before goodbye
With Labor day nearing our summer is coming to an end.  We are going to relax this weekend and then get back to our work on Sunday.  I have several hours of work to get done today and then Thursday its off to Canton's First Monday Trades day.  Friday will be spent with our mothers and Saturday its back to Hillsboro. 
Our church has bought a new 15 passenger van.  It is really nice and much quieter than our old one.  We now have 2 vans and are trying to sell our yellow school bus.  We took Jason and his family to the airport in the old van only because the back seat was already out of it making room for their 19 suitcases.  Janie and I went by Cabela's which is about 15 miles from the airport.  We enjoyed shoping and ate supper there.  We bought a few things and then fought the rush hour traffic in Fort Worth making it home safely.

I have the MBA of Texas church letter forms ready to print out.  I am going to try to get those in the mail early next week.  There are 277 churches in the MBA of Texas as of right now.  This number is down by about 30 from when I became the clerk.  That is a trend that I hope reverses this coming year.  The last thing we need is for churches to be closing their doors.  God bless you.
