Great News!

Granddaddy’s Going To Be a Great Granddaddy!
How about that? We’ve known this for a little over a week, but had to wait to make the announcement.

Mandy called and gave us the news, that she is expecting and the baby will be due sometime in July, 2012. We are very excited about this big event in our family!

I was thinking about when Grandmother was finishing up her college degree, I told people that I slept with a Coed. Now I’ll have to tell them I sleep with a Great Grandmother! Times change…

My Dad’s excited also. He’ll be a Great Great Grandpa!
