Little Of This, Little Of That!

Hey Everyone!

Like I thought, I was not able to get a quality post out yesterday. :/

Last night our Masonic lodge held a “School of Instruction” which is exactly what you think it is. We gather at one spot and have other lodges converge on that location, and spend the evening working on ritual work. Since most true Masonic information is not written down it is very important to hold these kind of meetings. They are very laid back and fun. You don’t have to dress up, we usually have food and drinks available for afterwards. It is also a great time to meet other brothers from other lodges.

Over the last few days I have been sick, again, and not doing much. One of those days my mom and dad came over and brought a gift from my great aunt Jackie.


As you can see he wanted to eat it. It is a Christmas tree ornament, his very first one! We are thankful for our family and all the things they do for us. Also, side note, please go back and look at the back of his hair hahaha.

This morning we had some fun getting him ready for daycare. He is all snuggled up in this first one and dressed in the next one.



So cute! It is getting pretty cold here and we have to wrap him up pretty good. It is going to be a real pain this winter haha.

Today at work we are having a retirement lunch for our receptionist. She has been here 28 years and will be leaving us after tomorrow. It is sad but shes 80 so she is ready. I have been working on setting her up with a PC to take as her retirement gift. Our company gives each person that has been there over, I want to say 5 years, $100 for every year that they have been with the company. So she is walking out with $2800, not bad haha.

Yesterday I received my very first letter from Abel my sponsor child. It was written by someone who works with Children International, because he is 9 and cannot write. I hope that he will learn as soon as he can. It was sent with a picture that he colored as well. His family is doing well, and are thankful for my sponsorship. He enjoys playing soccer, with his friends and helping around the house. I have sent him another letter and can’t wait to hear from him again!

We have been invited to a Halloween party for us and out kid this Saturday, but I’m not sure we are going to go. He currently has his second ear infection and I am just getting over my second sinus infection. We may just stay away from people in general. lol

I hope you are all having a great Thrusday, and I will see you all again tomorrow! 😀 😀

  1. That baby sure is a cutie!

    I like that tradition of $100 for every year over 5 with the company!

    The School of Instruction is interesting. Is that when the tracing boards are used? I’ve only heard a little about that.

    1. Thank you!

      Our company is very employee oriented, and still family owned which is amazing!

      Yes they can be used then. A lot of the time we just teach them as we go. Our lodge hold our own local practice once a month, which helps new guys out quite a bit.

  2. Made my day to see Emmett’s smile. And btw I told my husband that you got sick after a trip to the daycare. He laughed! Not because he thought it was funny but he remembered it so well from when our now adult children were little.
