Celebrate This Week: Two Aunts and a Niece

Join us each weekend for Celebrate This Week with Ruth Ayres.

When we pause to celebrate, we find the joy.
Discover. Play. Build. 

   A week filled with moments to celebrate and remember.

I met my niece on Wednesday in San Diego at the end of the AVID conference where she was presenting.  I sat in on the last hour of her three days with the participants.  I relished watching Kara interact with the participants as they left the room.  She stood at the door, called each by name, and thanked them for coming.  I loved looking around the room at the posters filled with three days of learning together. 

A fun-filled week!

Road trip to Riverside with a stop at In N Out for burgers

Chocolate roll (a family favorite) for
Kara’s early birthday celebration

Happy times chatting around the kitchen table

A meal at Don Jose’s

Laughter at my son’s quote when I returned his call and he asked what we were doing -  I told him that all three of us were in the family room together on our devices and he quipped:  
“The family that wifis together sticks together.” 

A Facetime visit with Mr. Jack – He was so excited to see Kara,
his summertime buddy from June!

Technology help from Kara – she showed me how to grab screen shot pics from Instagram videos and taught me how to use Pic Collage.  I love that Kara and James (my brother's kids) join me as 
proud family alums from OSU!

And what would a celebration be without
pics of my beautiful grandsons?
