Just a few children I happen to know

April 3, 2016 | My Jottings

These pictures were taken last summer. My grandchildren have gotten taller since then…I keep wishing it wouldn’t happen so fast.

Here is Mr. McBoy, who was 13 at the time. He is almost six feet tall. (He’s still 13, but not for long….) He looks so much like a Sooter to me.


And here is Mrs. Nisky, who has made her Mrs. Nisky’s Biscuits famous. At least in our family they are. Eleven years old.


This is Li’l Gleegirl, also known as Moo. She was a giggly nine years old.


Below is Baby Shamrock, AKA Weezer, Louiser and Mrs. Baby. She was three here.


And here’s the whole family, on the shore of Lake Superior. Chris, Sharon and the four Mick-muhs. (It’s a long story.)


I hope you’re getting some spring weather where you are! We had three inches of snow yesterday, hail and bitter winds today, and snow is in our forecast twice for the coming week.

I’m off to make chicken curry with vegetables and coconut milk and lime powder and basmati rice for dinner…

    Ohhhhh…..these are gorgeous children ! ….love all the nicknames too!
    I stared at the family picture on the beach for a long time…..& felt such a surge of emotion flood my soul. There is nothing more beautiful than a loving family…..convicts my spirit to pray for our precious young families in our lives & be available for them as best we can. You are a special mom & grandmother Julie. Thank you for sharing your children & their children with us…XO
