Great Grandmommy Morris's home

Hi Friends,
We have been so busy lately, but having some good family time. We went to Lonnie's grandma's house in the about 30 minutes outside of Birmingham. It was nice to spend time with family and learn more about the history of the family. We found interesting information on our Morris family history, and were able to listen to uncle Hamilton tell several stories over the course of the day. History seems to come alive to us when it is experienced personally or by family or friends. It was such a blessing to be able to go. Sarah and Hannah enjoyed themselves so much. We even had fresh veggies, out of the garden, for lunch. Lonnie also enjoyed spending time with his aunt and uncle. Some of the furniture in the house has been there since the family bought the house in 1920. The country air was good for Hannah, and both girls loved being there, sitting and relaxing on the porch. We did take several pictures, and are excited to share. As we were heading to come home we stopped by the train tracks near the house. The girls loved seeing the tracks, and looking for train track nails. They found several to bring home and share with friends. We hope that you enjoy the pictures.
Sarah received a calligraphy set this past week and is expierimenting with writting letters. She is enjoy learning the different ways to write. She is writing her pen pal from Poland, and can hardly wait to send it.
Have a blessed week.
Much Love and Prayer's,
Lori and crew
