Okay, I am finally updating the blog=]
We are all 99% better from the chicken pox,I hope we NEVER go through it again.
Well,after we got all better, the grapes we ordered came in! So we have been making grape juice these past few days.We just finished it yesterday! We "tested" some today with breakfast It was good.All together we got 209 qts. of grape juice. Also, yesterday we picked apples from our apple trees, we got 8 bushels!!! It was quite fun.It’s more satisfying to pick it your self,(and from your own trees,)then to get it already picked=]
So I have posted some pictures of the grapes and apples and a few other things=]
….and more grape juice
This isn’t all, there’s LOTS more in the basement.
And here are about half of the apples,

Today we couldn’t go to church (again) but….next week I think we can go!!!!!!!! We haven’t gone for 4 weeks because of the chicken pox.
And the last thing is Daddy and Mommy went to see Fireproof!!! It starts at 5:30 so it will be starting soon, I am SO, um, I don’t know what the word is, I’m so excited that they can go see it! And so they can tell us a little about it=] As of right now it hasn’t started and I can’t wait till they get home=]=]=] I can’t wait to see it!!! But I will probably not be going to the theater so I will have to wait 6 months to a year for the DVD to come out Well we are going to watch a couple movies so I better go. I think they are waiting on me, they keep on saying "Cassia are you coming??"

I decided to save this as a draft because I thought of something else I wanted to write about but I didn’t have time to write it. Well, to start with we watched "Little Women" the old version, I like it a WHOLE lot better then the new version, the new one has way to much kissing in it! But thats not the only reason I like the old one better.=] I think the old one stays closer with the book. Well, Daddy and Mommy I hope are having fun. Their movie should be done by now, their probably getting ice cream at Ritters,they talked about going there. And now for what I originally saved this as a draft for. I read a book recently called "Sergeant York and the great war". The author is York himself but it was edited by Tom Skeyhill.I really liked it, it was especially neat since York wrote it himself.And so I finished that book and started another one,=]one that I have been wanting to read for awhile,"Washington’s Spies".So I got it through interlibrary loan, and I started reading it….well it’s not at all what I really thought it would be,I have skipped over a few detailed parts that I didn’t really want to read=]It is also a little hard to understand so I can’t read big portions at a time.But I am going to go ahead and read it through, maybe it will get better as I go, I am only in the middle of chapter 2. They are long chapters. Well I think I will sign off for now. Hey wait…..DADDY AND MOMMY ARE HOME!!!!!!!!!!!!
got to go!!!!!
