Hope all of you mothers had a wonderful Mother's Day. We spent the weekend with my mom & dad in Oak Hill, Ohio. We had a great time. I got to see all three of my brothers and their families, and my sister, Lyvone Peters was home from Martinsburg, WV. It was a beautiful weekend. The weather was perfect. We went to Lake Jackson and had a picnic on Saturday then on Sunday there was 18 of us at Mom & Dad's for a delicious dinner. What more could we ask for?

This is most of my family, The Crace bunch. My oldest brother, Bob and his family is not in the picture.

Proud To Be An American

Nathan & Jessica with my mom & dad, Bob & Garnet Crace

We are almost done with our school work for the school year so I decided to give the kids a break. We went on a field trip to the National Museum of the United States Air Force, at Wright Patterson Air Force Base in Dayton, Ohio. If you have never been there it is well worth the trip. You Can visit their web site at .
Seeing the many exhibits made me realize the sacrifice so many have made just so I can home school my kids if I choose, go to church when and where I want, and the countless other freedoms we take for granted. It makes me proud to say I am an American.

Nathan was "in Heaven" in the cockpit
of this fighter jet.

Jessica took the back seat but of course she still had to tell her brother how it should be done.
