It has taken me a full week to get over April. I haven't posted a blog in 2 weeks. Now is the time to get back to business. I will make this post a review of last month.
The first weekend was our annual Bacom Reunion. My husband was born the youngest of 3 boys to Julia and James Bacom. When both of his parents passed away, the boys decided to set aside the first weekend in April as a reunion. We have done this for about 7 years. Now Brad is the only son left. We had a nice gathering at my sister-in-law's house in Cypress, TX.
After the reunion, our grandson came home with us and his parents went back to Austin. My pregnant daughter was visiting from Oklahoma. This was a great time for aunt to get to know nephew. We had a great time playing "soutside" with the bike I just had to buy him.
The second weekend in April was my mother's 90th birthday. We had a party Saturday and over 100 people came.
The grandson went home with his parents on Sunday and my daughter left on Monday.
The third weekend I participated in the F.I.G. (Friendswood Is Great) Festival. Sunday, April 17, I began a painting at church.
On Easter Sunday I completed the painting The Brightest Dawn.
The culmination of the month of April was the Third Annual Friendswood Family Festival. I was the official coordinator, but I had lots of help. It was great. The only problem we had was electrical. When I arrived on Saturday morning at 7:00, there was no electricity. The entire neighborhood was out. We did not get electricity until 9:00 and the festival started at 10:00. We worked like crazy and it was great!
Everyone had a great time. We had an auction and bake sale and some awesome sponsors. The church and school made a profit of $8000. YEAH!! and it is over for another year.
