We definitely enjoyed our time in Kansas, catching up with family and friends. Max Reser, one of our cohosts at Golden Bell the last few years, came to visit us last week. We hadn’t seen him since last fall and it was great to see him. We may or may not get to see him while we are in Colorado, depending upon his availability to come.
One of the things we learned while at the Landing this spring was that if we really wanted to sell the property, there probably wouldn’t be a lack of buyers! We still have the generator that LeRoy took out of Liberty to eliminate weight in the front end and give us a few inches higher ride. LeRoy pulled it out by our circle drive and put signs up offering it for sale. Lots of people stopped by, thinking the property was for sale. The signs all said what was for sale and they got close enough to read that, but didn’t. Food for thought! If Heidi and Tim ever leave Sedgwick, we don’t need to be that far from Wichita, but until then we’re happy with the Landing.
Wednesday night we finally got to attend Jadelyn’s 8th grade promotion without flooding or postponement. We were so proud of her. Her speech at the conclusion was very nice.
Special occasions sometimes let us see family members who live at a distance and this was no exception. Granddaughter Katrina from Oklahoma was able to come see us! It isn’t often we get smiling pictures of Katie. Photos aren’t her favorite!
I don’t have pictures with Bailey, Tim and Heidi available (my computer is giving me fits), but these should be enough to let you know that I’m really, really the shortest one! To my credit, Jadelyn was wearing 4 inch heels, so she’s really not quite as tall as she looks.
Ben, on the other hand, is every bit as tall as he looks! He dwarfs us! He put his elbow on my head just to make me feel shorter.
The day after graduation, we were ready to head out for the summer. This is the first time we’ve left the Landing in a home other than Liberty.
Since Jordan and Marc weren’t able to come to graduation and we were going to be within 10 miles or so of them on our way west, we stopped to see them and had lunch in a nice little diner in Ellsworth. We just had to get our Rachel (Rae) fix while we were so close! It is so much fun to watch her grow.
Of course, Marc and Jordan are part of the package. We love spending time with them. Marc has recently taken a lead pastor position at a church in Ellsworth and it was interesting to hear about his new sermon series.
The rest of the trip was pretty uneventful. No storms and not even a lot of wind. LeRoy says it’s so much easier driving the Flair as compared to Liberty. Power steering and cruise control are good things!
We spent a night at the Golden Bell RV park just for old times sake and visited with several friends there before we came to Travelport RV park in Lake George, when we plan to spend the summer just being tourists. Come see us!
