Since today was Wednesday, I met Abby at her house and then followed her to her church. I just love it when I go there and Mikayla asks me if I want to go to church with her.

Sunday I invited Josh and Shelley to come tonight and I'm happy to say they all came. I was a little worried that Cambria would be upset at going to the kids room. She seemed apprehensive at first, Josh said. But then he walked in and stood her next to Carter and Kayla. She put her hand up and touched Carter's hair and she was fine. Isn't that great?

Wednesday's are more of a Bible study, but I enjoy it. Abby is getting more uncomfortable as the days get closer to her due date (July 18). She had to lean forward twice to get the pressure of the baby to move. I'd best get my camera fixed or else I'll be looking around for a new one.

Last time I had to make a run to buy film for the camcorder while Ab was in labour. I'd best get my ducks in a row this time. I can't wait till I can blog about my new grandson being born!!!!

Father's Day

Last Sunday was Father's Day and half our kids came out. Abby, Justin, and Mikayla came out first. Followed by Josh, Shelley, Taylor, Carter, and Cambria. What a great day!

Of course the mosquitoes were out in force; but, before long, Justin started a fire. He then collected some branches from the fir trees and placed some on the fire. Others he took around the yard we were in, waving them up and down to get smoke all around. It did pretty good!

Once the campfire was going, Josh opened the marshmallows, candy bars, and graham crackers and before long S'mores were made. The grandkids love them. Myself, I just enjoy having the marshmallows.

Since Steve's been working, it was great having the day off and enjoying it with the kids. I'm thankful I'm on social security disability. I don't know what I'd do without it. I'm also glad I was smart in paying off my vehicle while I had the money to do so.

Hope you all had a great Father's Day!

There are a lot of ways an athlete can injure the shoulder in training or competition. Having had a rotator cuff injury and later in life a strain in the same area, I know how bad that pain is. I cannot imagine the pain some of our athletes go through when playing in school athletics or professionally.

Thankfully, now there are shoulder braces for football that you can wear to prevent injury and others for post-injury or post-operatively.

I can remember watching Josh play football when he was younger and worried constantly that he would be hurt. One bad fall could wreak havoc on the shoulder, taking you out of the game, possibly for weeks. I'm not sure if they had shoulder braces then, but you can bet I would have gotten one if I'd known about them.

If you or a family member plays football, be sure to check into shoulder braces to prevent injury for yourself.
