Happy Birthday USA 7/7/07

Happy Birthday USA! Wednesday we celebrated her birthday with flags flying and community fireworks. It is of course Independence Day in the U.S.

Joseph and the family enjoyed the company of friends a number of times during the last week. It's a great time for movies, Bar-B-Qs and friends. Thursday we had a great evening with Veronique White and her kids from Washington. [Roger White was one of our assistants in the missionfield in England, an awesome missionary. Veronique was a non-member from Holland who was the finest dry-land Mormon known to man. She lived with us and helped Gloria in the mission home for a time (not while Roger was there) while attending Bristol University. After her baptism she came to the U.S. and the Ferrons (an incredible former missionary couple from the EBM) introduced her to Roger, and the rest, as they say, is history.] Read about the Whites on their web page Their first child, Monique, is a special blessing. Our grandkids loved borrowing her little person wheelchair and playing "Uncle Joe". Our grandkids Ethan and Cheyenne loved playing with Jacob and Eliza. The Ferrons came over as did Sarah (former Sister Skidmore) and Tom Baker. We are always lifted in the company of great friends

Tim took the week off from work and spent the time cleaning up his computer room and installing a new window in the basement guest bedroom (the last remaining single pane window in the house). Gloria got a shot of him chalking in the window well (and you didn't think he could fit. . . ). He'll be glad to get back to work Monday!
