thinking of all of you!
hi everyone! i still check in daily to see what is going on in all of your lives. things here are really different, without Al, and not a minute goes by that i'm not thinking about him. i also visit him daily. we are in a heat wave here it's still 95 at 10 pm, so i feel sorry for all of you who do not live by a lake (we live 6 blocks from lake superior, and we are not benefiting from that lake breeze!). matthew and carley made it throught their birthdays without Al, but we made sure that we spent extra time telling him about the day. Gracie Joy Devine is almost 8 months old and weighs a huge 6.8 ibs! (for you who are new here gjd is a puppy Al gave me before he passed). it's weird having time, and not hurrying but i'd give those up in a flash just to have Al back. i hope you're all having a good summer so far, and i think of you my dear friends alot!
