Monday Memories—They’re Back


Ande's Room-----Abe's Room

The kids are home! A summer highlight for us is the kids coming home from college. When they unload their things it is a mystery that we ever fit two kids to a bedroom.

I loved it when I was young and my older brothers and sisters came home. Because of age differences, I especially remember Davy, Chris and Marcia coming home. When Davy came home he gave us rides on his motorcycle. Chris wore a dishtowel for an apron when she came home, and even made leftovers fun—she would fix a plate of all the different things in the fridge and then put a number on each plate then we drew a number for supper. Marcia thought of fun things for us to do and took us to “picture shows” at the theatre and drive-in. She also bought us gallon jugs of root beer at A&W.

I’m so glad the kids are home and I’m really hoping our 25 year old washer hangs on one. more. summer.

ha ha ha, I have to laugh because it is so true - one minute I wish for them the next I wonder what I wished for!

Two down, one to go, right? Surely Ty won't have quite so much stuff to bring home!

Mom,
Admit it, I never made that big of a mess when I came home, and I put my stuff away REALLY fast.

Oh, my. I only came home for two summers don't recall the great move-in/move-out baggage, but I'm so happy for you to have your loves back!

I never came back home once I left...I mean I came for short amounts of time but never moved all my stuff back...which I know my mother is thankful for.
