Papa’s World – Cousin Douglas comes to visit – Swede’s talk!

The view from our condo – never gets old.

Douglas will stop overnight – on his journey back North from Florida.

Doug is first cousin to Sherry – both his grandmother and Sherry’s grandmother were sisters

and both from Sweden first generation.

Douglas and Sherry in our condo.

Doug is two years older and can speak fluent in Swedish.

He was a educator all his life – Principal – Superintendent and author.

With over 7000 followers on his twitter blog site.

This is the first time in I believe four years since we last saw him.

And – have invited him to stop in on his next journey through the area.

A lot of family history from both of them was discussed.

I love history – and family history is my observations I like to listen to.

I would sit for hours and talk to her mother about her and her family and childhood.

Thank you for reading Papa’s World – another page in our book of life.

I write for those who live and for those who come in the future.

A journal of family – friends and times with pictures.

I have always regretted that I have no history of my own family

other than what I remember and everyone who could tell me is gone.

Papa’s World – FAMILY JONES – Make a wish tree – along the ICW!

Maya Olivia Kristie and CASSIDY’S make a wish seashell – our grand daughter!

We arrived – The Make A Wish Tree area –

along the ICW in Little River S.C.

at the Vereen Memorial Garden!

The girls were excited – because we told them – their cousins had been there

a couple weeks prior!

We showed them the sea shells they had made and signed!

So they went about finding shells!

So may shells to look at!

They took their time – looking with the help of their parents and Sherry!

Casey Kristie Olivia

Now it was time!

Spread them out on the bench – string them – and write your wish!

Found the spot on the tree – where their cousins left their names and added theirs!

Thank you for reading Papa’s World

Since there are so many great pictures

Papa’s World – Family – walking into a new year!

Family

As we start the new year – 2021 –

Hoping that this year will be better than the last!

We now are officially in the South!

But – the family is spread now out more than ever!

Troy Papa Sherry Shawn Trisha

My two sons and daughter in law are all back in NWPA.

They run a energy – audit company that contracts with the state.

Very successful and ever growing

Troy runs the crews – Trisha the office –

and Shawn the audits.

This is all done with grants for the elderly

by both the state and the power companies that serve the elderly.

Three sisters – Sherry – Debbie – Bonnie

Sherry has two sisters – one still lives back in NWPA

The other outside Raleigh N.C.

Both are retired as is Sherry who also runs her own

network marketing company from where ever we live.

WWW.SF.Juiceplus.com

We are now across Pa. Va. N.C. and a possible Tenn.

The children of the three sisters – cousins – very close – growing up.

Kristy – Nigel – Bethany – Natalia – Nathan – Tammy – Debby – cousins.

The family has grown over the years –

today you see in the first picture that growth.

And now the grand children of the three sisters

As we age – it seems that get together’s get less and less.

Being so spread out and so diverse –

logistics and time make it almost impossible to bring it off!

Debby’s family – Ella Maddy Sarah Mike a number of years ago.
Tammy and family Taylor Bode Cassidy Marcus

2020 has been a tough year – a time of forced seperation

social distancing – less travel – moving away.

It also has brought us together with Zoom calls

text messages and phone calls.

But one thing is for certain –

family always remains strong.

My blog starts and ends with family.

FAMILY – WALKING INTO A NEW YEAR!

Papa’ s World – Healthy living – one day at a time

How many ways do you say ” I LOVE YOU ELLA ” !

The twins gravitate toward their cousin Sarah – Bode – his idol is Ella.

It has been this way ever since he could walk and talk. ” Is Ella going to be there ” ? he will ask. Ella is our second oldest grand daughter – who will turn 16 this July. Bode is our youngest gran child

and the only boy out of SIX ! He turns FIVE in November . As you can see here – he absolutely adores her. ” Ella – you want to play “? he asks.

Both have been brought up eating Healthy – as have all the grand kids. That is priority number one for their parents – even though they both are cousins – it runs in the family.

This was taken before Ella’s soccer game and during her older sister’s game. Both play – Maddy is the starter on Midfield – varsity and Ella starts as midfielder on the J.V. team.

The varsity is 8 wins 2 loses & 1 tie.

The J.V. are 7 wins 1 loss & 3 ties.

Very proud of these two and Maddy signed a Letter Of Intent to play soccer at The University of Lynchburg in Va. We will make trips to watch her play.

Bode loves his cousin and she in turn choose to sit with him prior to her game – she has the biggest heart and to see them was priceless.

We all practice living to the plus – being together – and supporting one another. This is but one more day in PAPA’S WORLD .

And Bode supports his Ella !

Papa’s World – all he wanted was his cousin – ELLA !

The birthday was earlier in the week – turning five –

His one request – ” I WANT ELLA TO GO TO TOP GOLF ” !

This is a five year old who adores his sixteen year old cousin !

BODE & ELLA
at Top Golf

For the last few years – he has been fascinated with her.

Going where she is and asking her to play with him.

BODE & ELLA

And she is so good with him –

You can hear him yelling ” ELLA – ELLA ” when she plays soccer !

Cheering her on and she in turn can hear him.

I do not know how to explain this –

only that he became attached to her when he was between 2 and 3 .

The other two – Taylor and Cassidy –

form that same bond only with Sarah –

Ella’s younger sister.

We are a family of mostly girls
mother and daughters
Bode the lone boy

It was Bode who asked to go here

It was chilly – 35 degrees –

but we kept warm with the overhead heaters.

Debby – Tammy – Sherry
Mother and two daughters

We had a fun time – over two hours –

It is always fun when you spend time with family.
