My Grandsons Said….

The boys ate lunch with us a couple weeks ago. Halfway through his plate, Nate said he was done with his food and full. Not many minutes later, he asked for ice cream. “I thought you said you were full?” I questioned him. “That was the good food part of me,” he said. “The dessert part is still hungry.” !! And then Sunday morning on the way to church, Phil asked me why my hair was short. (he already knows what he likes, i guess). “I like my hair short,” I told him. “Well, you need to get a wig,… Continue reading


Dave’s mom moved into a new home. She’s almost 80 and this hasn’t been easy for her. One thing she did in this move is downsize, and she gave several pieces of furniture to Dave and me. This is a good thing for us, because 8 years of little boys in our home have pretty much finished off what furniture we did have. So I spent a good portion of today arranging furniture. That was fun, but it was also tiring and aggravated my arthritis. A nice shower and some downtime on the computer, AND a couple of Tylenol…now, I’m… Continue reading


Phil is the middle grandson. He is a little sweetie, most of the time. When I picked the boys up for church this week, Phil said he wanted to come and live at my house. It seems that one of his favorite toys had gotten broken and he was mad at the person who broke it, and felt that if he came and lived with us, his stuff wouldn’t get broken. I laughingly told him he couldn’t come live with us. Jenni’s boyfriend, D, popped his head into the room and suggested that Phil just go ahead and pack his… Continue reading


The weekend is here. Dave and I have decided to try and spend one-on-one time with the grandsons, rather than have them all here at once. We are at the age that all of them at once is a bit overwhelming–the noise level and the activity level are off the charts! So tonight Nate is spending the night with us. Tomorrow night Phil will be here and then Sunday afternoon we will have AJ until about supper time. We love these boys. They are precious, and we are blessed. God is good.

Happy New Year!

Another quiet day at the Wood household. Dave and I slept until around 9 this morning, which is VERY late for me. We picked up number 1 grandson, Nate, and took him to his favorite place to eat (K&W–can you believe that?). While there, I noticed a little twinge in my “gut”. Having had three sick grandsons and one sick daughter since Friday last week, I got a bit worried, especially when all of a sudden the blood drained from my head and into my stomach and began a mighty big churning. We decided we should get out of the… Continue reading
