    She is adorable,Kevin!! You are right..time does fly. How can my oldest grandson be 13? Don’t you wish the “honor system” were more prevalent among we English…sigh…

    Aster is adorable. Hold on to these times. It goes faster and faster as they get older. Ella’s going to be 9 on the first of Feb. I have no idea where that time has gone.

    There used to be a bulk food company in Holmes county that had a catalog. The figuring postage was tricky as you had to combine all the weights, sort of like the old Sears catalog. They had a notation that if you couldn’t figure the postage, just send a blank signed check and they would fill it in and send you a receipt, so I guess the trusting worked both ways 🙂 .

    it is always great to hear about your family and that you share pix is appreciated.
    time does fly faster and faster. I so vividly recall our first granddaughter cutting her first tooth while I was being a nanny/Nana for 3 wks and now she is about to get her drivers license. when I asked her sister who is Trisomy 21 and 4 yrs younger how her sisters driving is going she answered She thinks she is a good driver, yep. This is as close to a negative remark as she has ever gotten about her older sister. She so loves her and feelings are very mutual.

    Thanks for the pix of Aster. She is really growing. It seems just yesterday that I first became a Gramma, but that young man is thirty yrs. old now. YIKES!!!! Ten grandchildren later, I still enjoy each and everyone of them. I also have five great grandchildren makes me feel old. Thanks again for sharing our little Aster.

My children are grown, and have children, their children are grown and have children. Have a 18 year old grandson who lives with family in Wyoming. Husband and I live in MI. So enjoy and love Aster.

    Aster gets cuter by the day! My youngest hooligan…I mean grand son is 2 and a half…and if he lives to see 3 it will be a miracle. Look up the word hooligan and you’ll see his picture. My oldest granddaughter is preparing for college in the fall. Now, I want to know how that happened! Wasn’t she born yesterday?

    Kevin, Aster is very sweet and the picture with her great-grandmother was touching. Keep plugging away and all will come together. Gloria and Rosanna are gifted writers. Would you share why Lovina is no longer The Amish Cook? Were there serious health issues or something else? She was like a member of the family and I looked forward to reading about her family, especially, whether Elizabeth and Susan are engaged. Thanks and keep up the good work.

    Kevin,
    Thanks so much for your articles. I especially like hearing about the stores you visit and hope to get to some this summer. I live near Dayton, VA and we have a large Amish community and when we moved here the horse and buggies were so nice to see. My daughter was just a baby and we gave her the plain dolls for her first Christmas and I still have them. I framed them in a picture frame and hung them on her wall. Keep sending pictures of Aster and family because to me that is what your column is about-families!
