We are leaving in the morning for Portland to spend time with our "Oregon kids"--that would be our son, his wife and their two very precious, precocious, active, intelligent sons. Of course, I'm not prejudiced!! I need to see them at least every 4-6 weeks to keep up with their growth and the latest "Nolanism" and "Kevinism". How great it is to watch our children raise their children and be a part of that. Our granddaughter lives right next door to us, so we see her every day, but we never tire of having her pop in to say hi. She is a pre-teen and quite a little horsewoman. I have great hopes for these children as they are being taught the principles and values that we taught their parents. It will not be easy for them to hold on to their values in this society, but I have great faith that He who has begun this work in them will see it finished.

A beautiful day today after one of those wild, spring Ellensburg days yesterday. Woke up to snow, then had sunshine, rain, wind and snow again. This is typical weather for here in the Spring, but it still beats tornadoes and floods, etc.

I am going to a women's retreat/conference in Canby, Oregon this weekend. Had a very hard time making up my mind to go because I always set my expectations too high on things like this and then am disappointed. Hopefully, I can let go of my expectations/needs and just accept whatever God has for me and be open to that. Maybe it will be SUPER! Oops.
