Hey Betty People!!!
Are you ready for more pictures from my recent trip to Kansas and Oklahoma?
Three of my sisters, a niece, and I traveled to go to another sister's retirement party in Tulsa.
Eileen (on the left) was the honoree, ending a long career in teaching.
Our niece, Julia, (on the right) will begin her teaching career soon!
After the party, we all headed back toward Kansas, stopping at one of the sites of Laura Ingalls Wilder's Little House on the Prairie sites.
We all loved that series, so this was quite the thrill for us.
Also, a thrill? Finding a dried up snake and surprising our sister Marlene by putting in on the handle of her car door!
Her reaction was impressive and could be heard for miles around.
We all journeyed back to see our mom.
She sometimes has trouble recognizing people, but as you can see, when she saw her granddaughter, her face lit up.
My mom had not had all five of her daughters gathered around her for many, many years.
Here we are. I am so lucky to still have my mom and to have my wonderful sisters as well!
A very talented photographer named Alex Carothers http://flyingfar.zenfolio.com/about.html
took this one of the five of us.
I will treasure this picture (and the memories surrounding it) forever!
