Oliver LOVES bananas. He has become accustomed to getting his own banana at the end of our grocery shopping trips. He was VERY vocal about wanting it this time and here is his reaction to finally getting it...
I enjoyed visiting with some ladies at a casual luncheon this week. The food was amazing but I just loved the chance to visit with some extraordinary women. The reason for the luncheon was just to get together and share stories... One gal spoke of her belief that women are our society's "story keepers." She encouraged us to "keep" our stories by writing, blogging, recording, or whatever, just to save, share and preserve them. I have been struck by how my own kids seem to relish the stories Jared and I share with them and they ask about them frequently. For good or bad, our family's stories are part of us and we need to "keep" them. I was really grateful to go and get this great reminder.
We were able to visit the Nissan plant and see it in action this week. It was very exciting for the boys to see these robots building and assembling car parts, sparks flying all over the place. If you can, you really should go on this amazing, free tour. Quite an experience. No photos allowed or I certainly would have taken some!
And last but not least, we enjoyed a fabulous visit from my Uncle D and his family. What a delight to see them after so long. :) Makes me miss my immediate family...
Hope you had a great week too.
