Life goes on here, but I surely miss Kristy. It has been quite a change to get up in the morning and not rush off to the hospital. I know she is getting a good laugh out of watching me get my groove back.
There was a lovely visitation and funeral service for Kristy on Sunday and Monday. Her Mom, KK, and her Dad, Ray and his wife, Chris, did a beautiful job on her services. Kristy would have loved it. It did not take away the grief, but it was catharthic for the family. The children are doing pretty well. Today is Kristen's thirteenth birthday. She's been wanting to see the movie "Twilight" so Monday night, Kristen and I went to the movies for her birthday. Tuesday night she had a strings concert at Lee-Davis High School, so we all went to hear her play her violin in the Christmas concert. She is quite an accomplished player and we were proud of her.
Tomorrow I will pick up Eric and Kenneth and take them up to Tiff and Scott's for their weekend in Maryland. Scott will take Kenneth to the shooting range and Tiff and I will do some fun things with Eric. We're all going to the Cryptologic Museum on Fort Meade Saturday afternoon, as Tiff has arranged a guided tour for us. It should be a fun weekend with the kids.
Bob and Paul are still working on "Farm Projects".....there is no end to them! But they are having a great time doing all these "manly" things. We will stay here on the farm until Christmas, then head south to our place in Florida Grande. When we leave here, we most likely will not be back until late next year, so we want to spend as much time with the kids as possible. We hope to be in Alaska all of next Summer, then return to Virginia in late Autumn.
Hope everyone had a good Thanksgiving... hugs to everyone
