Well, the month is passing all too quickly. Art is enjoying his new job. He's learning all about the computer. He's always left that up to me, so this is definitely a little out of his comfort zone. However, he can do anything, so I'm sure in no time the computer will be just another mechanical process in his mind and it will be a cinch for him. That's the way it always is. I'm better at something because he never did it before. He studies it, sees it as a mechanical process and then he's better at it that I could ever be. Makes me mad as a hornet, and yet I'm proud of him anyway. lol It's wonderful to be able to be proud of your husband.

Well, Arianna survived the chicken pox. I think Ashley may have them now. She has several spots, but as yet they don't have the blistery looking place on them. We're watching her.

School is in session. I am still short some of the curriculum, especially for Arianna. I ordered it the first week of July, but due to some staff being out of state for a few weeks and other things it has been delayed. So we have been

waiting for over 3 weeks. Hopefully it will come in soon. They are doing what they have so far. Ashley is loving her welding class. She seems to have a real knack for it. Art said she welds better than he does. That's saying something coming from him.

Adam is interested in taking lost of free college courses. He wants to try and get some education during the next three years. I'm proud of him. He hasn't given up on learning. Our grandbaby is growing by leaps and bounds. He will be one before we know it. This whole year has passed so quickly that sometimes I feel like I am passing myself going out the door while I am coming in. But that's life, isn't it.

I think that's all the "new" news in the Roberts household. I'll try to update more later.

Good Grief! I didn't realize it had been so long since I posted anything. Our summer is moving along. Art's parents are up to visit. They have been here about 2 weeks and will be here another week. His sister, Rebekah was here also with her fiance Keith. They left a week ago headed for home. Bec's two youngest boys, Alex (16) and Zachary (13) are here as well and are going home with Art's parents. We have had a great visit.

It's almost time for school to start. I love this time of year. I love to buy school supplies!!!!! I haven't done that this year. Money is tight for now. Art just started a new job and it will be a time before we get caught up on everything. But I had tons of pencils, paper and notebooks left over from last year. I have put in the order for their text books but they aren't in yet. I have Allison's year of work half way done. She does well with it all spelled out for her. I have a couple of Ashley's classes done. Arianna will be the last one to have her assignments all done as it's mostly her books that aren't in. Pray that they come. Ashley will graduate this coming May. Yippee! Arianna is going into the 10th grade and Allison is in the 7th.

Adam is doing well. My parents just bought him a car so that he had wheels to get back and forth to work. He is so thrilled. His son, Braeden is just adorable. I still haven't seen him in person. Arianna and I hope to fly out before too long for a long visit between Adam and his family and my parents.

Well, that's all for now. Oh yeah, we had 7 gorgeous puppies. We have sold all of them. It's a sad day when the last one leaves and yet a glad day (no more piddle puddles or presents left for us to clean). We enjoyed them while we had them.

We hope your summer is going well. Know that you're thought of and prayed for.
