Fall update

This pumpkin field is around the corner from my house. They are harvesting the pumpkins, reminding me that we are in a new season.
Things change as the seasons turn, and change also happens in our lives.

We are counting down the days now, until our granddaughter arrives! Laura is due on October 11. She is doing well, but is getting anxious for this baby to arrive. This is her last week of work, things are pretty well ready at their house and so now we just wait.
I've been comparing notes with two of my blog friends who also expected grand babies about the same time as I was. Jean of What's up at the Stauffers was expecting a grandson on the 4th, and he came a little early - showing up on Monday! Kat of Just A Beachkat is expecting a grandson on the 13th, so she and I'll have to see who goes first - Laura or Bree.

Heather is doing well at her new job. She's enjoying what she does and is working with a lot of nice people. This is truly an answer to prayer.

Andy has 5 months left in Afghanistan. He's ready to be home. He still enjoys working on the helicopters but working 12 hour days with a day off only every 2 weeks is pretty tiring. When you add in not being able to get out and do fun things and not seeing family and friends it makes for a long 12 months. We are thankful for his safety there.

All's well with Bob and I. We can't wait to be grand parents and you know you'll hear about that when it happens!

I'm glad all is well with your family. :) I think of Andy and pray for him often. But I didn't realize Laura was due so soon! I need to add her safe delivery to my prayers. :)

Love the picture!

I'm thrilled to hear you're going to be a Grandma, and I am sure you will be wonderful.

Was thinking of you yesterday, not too many months before you and your sisters go on your Christmas shopping

Much love
