WWKIP and M2

Did you know Saturday was World Wide Knit In Public Day? Well, it was, and I celebrated by sitting on a bench in downtown Seward and knitting with my friend Dodie. We are attempting to get a knitting group started in town. I have enjoyed the Lincoln knitting group so much, but find it very difficult to get to any meetings anymore. I have been thinking about starting a knitting group here, and one day when I was grocery shopping at SunMart and wearing my Lincoln Knitters T-shirt I met Dodie. She was running the cash register at the grocery store, saw my T-shirt and asked me about it. Turns out she is a knitter and was also looking for a group, so we have started one. So far, it is just the two of us, but we will recruit!

Saturday evening was also the 3D Praise event sponsored by Bread of Life Ministries, and M2 (Manna Ministries). It was held at the Seward Bandshell and turned out fine. There were lots of activities for kids, and grown-ups as well, and Pastor Dan gave a great message about our 3 Dimensional God: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. The band rocked and the singers were great. We will have another outreach event on July 4.

Dave and I have been attending M2 for about 6 weeks or so, and I think it is where we are going to end up worshipping.

Maggie's Dance Recital

On Sunday, June 1, Grampy Dave and I went to Maggie's dance recital in Omaha. It was a hoot! Six little dancers, ages three and four, participated. It was held at their dance studio and attended by their adoring families, who pretty much filled the room. At age 4 1/2 Maggie was one of the older dancers. The recital lasted about 20 minutes and the girls got to show off their stuff.
After the recital we went to Dan and Jill's and continued Dave's birthday celebration by grilling out and spending the afternoon with the Jacksons and the Omaha Neeley family. Good times.

Grandpa Dave's birthday

May 31 was Grandpa's birthday; now he has caught up to me in age once again. We are 59 years old. I can hardly believe it!
I bought Dave some new books and a puzzle to share with Sam, Austin, Maggie and Shelby. It is an alphabet puzzle and we have had some fun with it. I also bought him some picture books of wolves and backyard wildlife. Liz got him socks, and Dan and Jill got him a gift certificate. Marge gave him a check and so did his Mom. He did a very nice thing with the money he received from Eleanor: he gave it away to a girl who is going on a mission trip to South America. She will use the money to make health kits to distribute while she is there. Cost Rica, I think.
