Last Wednesday, we went to a movie! Yes, my wonderful husband found a movie he wanted to see – Seventeen Miracles. The movie shows events from both the Willie and Martin handcart companies, combined in one movie. There is mention made of the wagon trains following, which brings the movie to family history. My great….grandfather, Hans Ulrich Bryner, was in the Hunt wagon train. If you have the opportunity to see this movie, we recommend it. Take tissues!
This week, we are going to visit Rob and Katherine in Kansas. We plan to visit Winter Quarters, where more family history will be seen. We are excited about the visit – praying for a change in the weather, but will enjoy the visit regardless.
Had a wonderful visit with my two grandsons, who live close, on Friday. They loved watching old Tom and Jerry cartoons. New movies, fancy sound and visual effects are fun, but the old animated cartoons were enjoyed greatly. Waffles for dinner, with huckleberries in them! Yummmmmy! I’m amazed at their intelligence. We talked about simple machines, which will be part of my new curriculum this fall. They each made a “levers video” to post to Facebook. My “starting third grade” grandson went online and played the science games I will have my students play! He had a great time. Sent the boys home tired that night! Love having them close. Being a grandma is great!
Life is good…I am so blessed.
