It was a good day at church Sunday with a good-sized crowd. I had missed the last two Sundays and it was so good to be back. The first Sunday I was in Texas with Julie to see Scott and last Sunday I was at the hospital with Julie.
Julie is still in the hospital and probably will stay there until she has the babies, which they want to postpone as long as possible. She continues to have very mild, irregular contractions but she is doing what she is supposed to and is still on bedrest and being monitored. Garrett gets to visit everyday and we seem to be getting into a routine.
I got to see David and Melanie Robertson’s new baby boy, Zane while at church Sunday. Grandma Connie Haes sure was proud of him, and I understand completely, he is a big boy and is absolutely a cutie.
Lois Lux is now a proud grandmother of a beautiful new granddaughter. Lois has six grandsons and this past Saturday morning, April 20, her son Tucker and wife Lori had a baby girl. The baby’s name is Noelle Helena Lux and weighed 8 lb. 11 oz. Noelle has two older brothers, Elliot and Ira. Lois said that Noelle is the first girl in the Lux family in 42 years. Lois’ daughter, Kim was the last girl born in the Lux family. Tucker and Lori and family live in Ohio, so Grandma Lois has had her plane tickets for awhile now to go visit the newest member of the Lux family. Noelle was also born on her Uncle Tanner’s birthday. Congratulations to all.
Nathaniel and Rachel (Mitchell) Graham are the proud parents of a baby boy named Jaden Russell Graham, born on Wednesday, April 17. Jaden weighed 7 lbs. 13 oz. I saw pictures on facebook and he was adorable.
Congratulations to Kyle and Kassidi Laughlin who were married last Friday evening, April 19 at New Mansion Church. Kyle’s best man was his brother Jessi Laughlin and Christian Kallstrom served as maid of honor for Kassidi. Pastor Jeff Marsh officiated at the ceremony.
Roger Wrisberg brought the message last Sunday morning at Hercules Church and I have heard from several that he did a wonderful job. Roger taught school at Bradleyville for many years. Three of my kids had him for a teacher and they all loved him. He definitely has a gift of communicating with people.
The Bradleyville baseball and softball teams have been having a few games along but I don’t have any details. I am having trouble keeping up with them. I hope to get to see a few before the season is over. Bradleyville has a new ballfield right behind the school that they are using this year. I love softball and baseball and really enjoy seeing the kids play. If you are interested in seeing a game you can call the school for details.
