Linda, Rainee, Chloe, Alec and Brody went to Claremore on Sat for the Gatesway Balloon Festival. Though, initially we were disappointed to find out that the balloons had left to points South for balloon races and would not return until the evening, the kids still had a great time with face painting (or arm painting for Rainee’s TARDIS), bouncing on the inflatables, snow cones, etc. We saw horse races and enjoyed the last day of summer.
At the water park in Owasso, the kids had a great time.Share on Facebook
Well, it has been awhile since I have updated with some tidbits.
We are settled in our home in Owasso. We still have the grandkids on a weekly basis and I have begun my job at Ford Audio Video. Michael will be going from Contract at Phillips 66 to a full time employee on his 23rd Birthday on September 1st! Congratulations, Michael!
I’ll be posting some pictures of Life as we Know it pretty soon!Share on Facebook
On August 1, people of faith, family-owned businesses, and charitable institutions will be forced to pay for sterilizations, contraceptives and abortion-causing drugs in violation of their deeply held religious beliefs and moral convictions. This development comes as a result of a Department of Health and Human Services mandate that requires all of these objectionable interventions be included in every health insurance plan, with very few narrow exceptions.
People of faith must send a clear message to Congress that they support religious freedom and rights of conscience. Representative Diane Black of Tennessee has introduced the “Health Care Conscience Rights Act,” (H.R.. 940), which protects individuals and organizations from being forced to violate their religious beliefs or moral convictions. Please act today to contact your elected representatives.
Time is running short for Congress to protect the conscience rights of all Americans. Our representatives will respond if they hear from us that religious freedom is a right. Encourage your fellow parishioners, friends and family to contact Congress. As Knights we should do everything possible to ensure that Americans do not lose their cherished right to religious freedom.Share on Facebook
We are now officially in Owasso! It was a terribly long process but, as for all good things, it has been worth it. We still have a loaded garage, hoping to be able to park a car in the garage at some point in our lives!Share on Facebook
