Turning 15

Happy Tuesday to you! I mentioned last week that our oldest grandson turned 15 and Saturday we had a family party for him. When you have a group as big as ours, no need to have a party with others-we are one big party. Our young man is such an incredible person, he has the gift of service-meaning he loves to help others. From the time he was 5, he always helped his dad when friends were moving. The box might be as big as he was, but he'd carry it. As long as he's been able, he is right there lending a hand. His parents are like that too and his Papa. When we moved into our home two years ago, we had him, his younger brother and Miss F helping us. He continues to be like that; some church friends have a business growing garlic and last summer he worked endlessly helping to pick the garlic. We are so very proud of the person he is and the man he's becoming.
What he didn't know and should have figured out was that there were 15 trick candles that would blow out and then start again.
Lots of smoke.
He is incredibly intelligent and I expect will go into engineering of some sort. 

Today is the day that the puppy arrives for this family; I can't wait to meet her.
