Well, we are back in our old “neighborhood” in Palm Coast. Same address too…G-3 (Dock G, Slip 3) Ahhhh…
Jon enjoys our 4 footed neighbors…and they run to see him.
I am back enjoying the beach sunrises
as I walk with my buddy, Bonnie, in search of heart shells.
Jon is back to some of his favorite past times…fishing
cooking (with the amazing Chef Cheryl)
and surfing…his f a v o r i t e!!
And he has the best coach ever…
Loves it so much, he has even begun to doodle during math…the smiling surfer!
He has found a few new enjoyments as part of science… tortoises,
birds…Great Horned Owl papa
and one of his owlets soon to fledge. (so high up…sorry it’s unclear)
We walked on an Audubon trail
with friends to see their rookeries. It is nesting season down here.
Beach birds make up a large portion of our bird watcher’s checklist.
Katherine is so enjoying learning sign language! We went to a class at the library where a mother of 5, whose oldest is deaf, and whose youngest I got to hold…
taught so many wonderful things about sign language. Most of it Katherine knew, but her high point was meeting Melita…
teenage girl, home schooled, learning ASL, loves music and had red tipped hair like Katherine had. Two peas in a pod. Today we all went to Deaf Awareness Day at a local college.
Melita and Katherine played deaf games, participated in”hand” activities,
spoke with and watched many who are getting a Deaf Education degree,
and enjoyed the students from Florida School of Deaf and Blind put on an amazing performance of signing and dancing to songs on stage
and with those watching.
Communicating with them afterwards was so natural to these girls.
Katherine is also expanding her art as she painted her converse high tops white and is adding artwork to that…a new project. Amazing!
Richard is beefing up his guitar abilities, learning and practicing every day! (this is him in his “Music” class. 🙂
David continues to create wearable art during the day
while working at a beachside restaurant at night.
Being back in Palm Coast, I had the privilege of seeing these 2 boys while visiting their parents…I call them boys because I babysat them when they were under 10 years old…Brian and Darren Grzyb. (Jason was in CA)
A quick update for those who know my older, married children. Stephen is still creating such beautiful art while happily married to his wife, Samantha,
and enjoying their new kitty, Finn.
Andrew and Tania’s newest daughter, our newest granddaughter, Mia, is 2 months old…Mara is 21 months.
Courtney and Julian are soon to make a move to Colorado
for his new job as a JAG lawyer (Judge Advocate General’s Corps, also known as JAG or JAG Corps, refers to the legal branch or specialty of a military concerned with military justice and military law).
Marilee is loving Cristian,
and working to help others.
And last, but not least, Emily. This is “another day in the office” for her
and she is expanding her skills as these fish are the result of her spear fishing. She is loving her life underwater, in the Keys…
though she still loves sunflowers on land.
And that is a synopsis of life in the Wells’ family. We,
with our curly, sun-kissed, wind blown hair, are blessed!
Behold, children are a gift of the Lord, The fruit of the womb is a reward. Psalm 127:3
