Here I am with my eight-month-old granddaughter Berneice. She's quite a doll. She has a wonderfully sweet personality and is a joy to all of us.
We are very blessed to have our grandkids living in town with us. When David deployed to Baghdad, he and Susan bought a house here. Susan, the twins and little Berneice live here, with lots of support from her parents and us. Now, we just need to get her Daddy home to make the family complete. The latest word is that their return scheduled for late September remains on track. At that point, he'll be done with his Army commitment, plans to go back to school to get a Physician's Assistant's degree and stay here and practice medicine. With a big, blue eyed little girl and lively twin sons, it will be a happy day to have them all together.
After three sons and two grandsons, it is so neat for Gretchen and me to have a little girl around! We are so grateful for a healthy, happy baby.
Running? Oh yeah, running. The ramp-up continues with 7 miles today in a biting, snow-filled, wind. No pain. Very neat.
Persevere. And smile with me at a cute baby!!
