Grandkids in the house

Rain is no longer a problem with the north wall covered now.
Progress is progress even if it is slow.  The contractor works one day a week on the church building.  The lower part of the wall has been repaired but the rafter part of the wall is still as it was.  There has been no progress this week but the weather has been cold and we had rain yesterday. 
The inside wall has new studs and decking.
Our daughter, Stacie, has come to visit with us for the week while Scott is at a meeting.  The grandkids are fun and work at the same time.  They make a mess when they eat and wet on the furniture and track in mud but the joy they bring is worth it all.  I was able to play Algebra Teacher with the older children.  They are at that level in their math education and though I hated it in school Algebra became my friend when I worked in engineering.  I enjoyed giving them problems to solve and they did a good job.  Next time I see them it will be time for Trigonometry.  We have played our favorite games, Wahoo and Hearts, and played chutes and ladders with the younger ones.

We will be heading over to Henderson on Thursday by way of Palestine.  We plan to go to Hot Rod's Burger where we will have 8 of our grandchildren together in one place.  Sure wish our French grandchildren could be there.  They are planning to come to the states in June and stay through August. We are anxious to see them.  God bless you.
Elisabeth is a sweety!
