We are still in the process of getting everything cleaned for our upcoming church services that we will host on May 4, Lord willing. Council meeting was set for that day, so lunch will be served during the service. We usaully have two tables set and people turn turns coming to eat over the noon hour.

We made 30 pounds of noodles from our own eggs. Chicken noodle soup will be on the menu that day. Our plans also include to have the youth singing in the evening and serve supper to them all, plus some of the families from our church. It will be a long day but I am happy to take our turn.

On Monday afternoon sister Emma’s daughters Elizabeth, 17, and Emma, 16, assisted us with some cleaning. Yesterday sisters Verena and Susan came to help. All their help is r appreciated with both my oldest daughters working at the factory and our five youngest in school. A lot of the work rests with daughter Verena and I. We have a big house to clean so it all takes time. It is such a relief though to be getting all those corners cleaned. A lot of people are planting early garden things and I am hoping to find time to do that yet.

We are enjoying dandelion greens fixed with a homemade sour cream and hard boiled eggs. It is always a treat to Joe and I but not many of our children came for them.

Sunday afternoon we were surprised to get a visit from Uncle Menno Coblentz from Arizona and Uncle Andrew Yoder from Geneva ,Indiana. It was so nice to see them again. It brought back memories of the Coblentz reunion we had every year and all the fun we had together. Now it’s been quite a few years, I’m thinking 10 years, that we couldn’t attend the reunion. It will be held in July again this year and I am hoping we will all get to attend. My Dad and his three sisters :Aunt Frances, Aunt Catherine and Aunt Betty have all passed on and also Uncle Melvins’ wife, Aunt Esther, Uncle Joe (Frances) and Uncle Emanauel (Catherine).It will make a big difference to not have all of them there but they would want us to carry on.
