Childhood Memories

Today is Saturday and it's a beautiful day outside. Earlier today the apartment management had an omlette bar in the Clubhouse for everyone, so Fletcher and I each had an omlette made to order by a personal chef in the clubhouse kitchen, then we sat outside on the veranda by the pool to eat. Life is good!

I talked to Amy, and she is having fun on her apartment hunt in Atlanta. Her friend "Bissie" and her husband met her there to help her look for an apartment to live in when she starts work there in July. She won't be moving in actually until August, but she is just getting some ideas of places that she might like to live once she moves there. She sounded like they were having fun.

Fletcher and I have been inside this afternoon, and I have been going through some of the boxes we've had in storage that contain photos and memorabilia. We found a box full of baby pictures of Fletcher and some things we have that his mother has given us with old photos of family members from his early childhood such as his baby book, and one old photo album, and things about his grandparents. So, as Fletcher is approaching his 50th birthday (very soon!) it has been fun to remember back when he was just a little boy growing up in Louisiana so long ago surrounded by a loving family of parents, and grandparents in the small town of Natchitoches, Louisiana. We love all of our family so much and really appreciate all of the sacrifices they have made for us through the years. I think we appreciate it even more now than ever before since we are parents of adult children ourselves. We miss being around our family now like families were in those days of the 1950's and early 1960's. But we are looking forward to what the future will bring in our family in the years to come!
