Easter With Five of Our Grandkids

Yesterday, my husband Jay and I spent Easter Sunday in Romeo, Michigan with our daughter’s family. We had a really good time, getting to see the older grandkids, for the first time since Thanksgiving! Nathan is the oldest and he will be twenty one in two weeks. Nate is happily married and both he and his wife Shauni, are working towards a career, at this time. He will soon become a licensed aircraft mechanic, the exact route that his father chose. While Shauni is taking classes towards a degree, to eventually become an R.N. I’m so proud of these kids, with both of them holding down a full-time job, also. They will someday become, two very fine adults!:)
