The powers-that-be (in this case, the U.S. Army) have Changed Their Minds, and determined that my stepson and family will NOT be joining us this summer. In all fairness, we never figured in their decision to begin with. They just had issues trying to decide when the soldiers were to report to their new duty station. As it happens, that will be sooner rather than later.
So no leave for them to spend time here. I am bummed. All those places to go…
Some of them Rick and I can just go to by ourselves. So there.
Still, I’m campaigning for Grandparent Visits during future summer months. Makila will be six next summer. That’s old enough to spend a week with the old folks, isn’t it? I’d like to do that with the teenage grandchildren too, and the nephews who are also teenagers. Before they all go away to college!
Editing of Shipbuilder continues at a steady pace. Eight more chapters to go. Also, two childbirth clients have had their babies – I’m going to visit one of them in a few minutes.
