Grandmama and Grandpapa got here this afternoon. I would have pictures but Katie's camera is broken. Don't know what's wrong.

Nathan has a soccer game this evening. He went with some friends to the game so we wouldn't have to drag Grandmama and Grandpapa out there after their trip here.

Mama, Katie, Grandmother, Aunt Betty and I went to a Mother-Daughter Dinner Saturday Evening. It was very good. They had a section in the program on What I Owe My Mother.
