Hello again!

Hello fellow bloggers (especially Claude, the magnificent)!!! LOL!!! I am back home and with my lightning struck modem, so am hanging out at Panera Bread this evening to send you a post! I should have my new wireless modem up and running by tomorrow evening...YEAH!

All is well in Germany. My son will be coming home for good on July 24...discharging after 5 years of military service! I am very proud of him. I am also extremely proud of my DIL, who has had to really sacrifice the most. Taking care of 2 young children in another country has not been easy...yet she did it, and has become a stronger woman because of it. I am proud to have her for my daughter! She is a wonderful human being, friend, and mother, and just about anything else she can be!

My grandchildren are fantastic! My grandson graduated from his preschool program while I was there and he was so proud! He got an award for the best Block Builder in the class!

This little girl is a sweet sugar baby! Emily June is 9 months old now and poses like a little ballerina with her cute little legs and pointed toes! What a doll. Of course, Grandma Julie fell madly in love with her!!!

As soon as I have my internet back up and running, I will be visiting all of your blogs...and the ABC ATC Blog as well. Everyone is just posting the greatest ATC's ever!!! I am loving watching it all unfold.

God bless you all.

Well it's about dang time!

Welcome back home, and I'm glad everything seems to be well...

Great to hear that you had a wonderful visit with your Grandkids. They both look like they're real characters. Soon they'll be in the states where you can have a good go at spoiling them rotten.

Great to see you back. It's funny how much you miss other blogger friends' posts when they go aways for awhile.

It's good to have you back, Julie. Your smile (yes, I can see it in your words) and enthusiasm were sorely missed. I'll bet you can't wait to have your family closer to you. It's a blessing, for sure. I'm trying to convince SAM to write another post. He's resisting so far, but he should know by now that resistance is futile....
