Dear Wren Friends,
Welcome Spring - WOW - what a wonderful change in the weather! We will be married 28 years on March 21st. In 1987, it was 74 degrees on that beautiful day and spring never looked back. We are hoping for a repeat of that memorable spring.
It has been a hectic, cold winter full of therapy and more therapy. Riley had surgery on her foot on January 12th. She is doing great and started therapy last week. Bob has had therapy on his back and knee since the end of February. He is doing so much better. There is one more arthroscopic surgery on his knee in May. It should take care of the last of the catching in his knee.
This winter was full of fun remodeling changes in our home. God blessed us with wonderful friends Brad and Sandy who helped us remodel our kitchen. Of course there were many surprises as we pulled out old cupboards, stripped wallpaper, and moved things around. It was an adventure and work in progress at every turn. They were patient, helpful and kept a sense of humor during the entire process. The finishing touches are all that is left. Most of those will be finished after the next couple shows. It looks beautiful!
Our freind Elmo helped put in the french doors to our sunroom and they look amazing. Our friend Dave and our neighbor Ken came and plowed out our driveway when we needed it the most. God has blessed us with awesome friends who helped us while Bob was recouperating. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
Mom has kept herself busy despite the weather this winter. She has still been able to walk whenever possible and enjoy her friends. It was so great to be able to see her just about everday when we picked up Riley from school. Riley and Jadyn have been busy at school, gymnastics and with church. They truly enjoyed the Winter Experience youth church camp near Traverse City in February. What an awesome Jesus expereience they had.
The show season is fast approaching and we have been busy designing, creating, stitching, woodworking and painting. We have missed seeing our Wren Friends and look forward to visitng with you soon. Please see the list of the first three shows on our Events page.
Bob and Peggy, Mom, Riley, Jadyn and Gracie too
