Goodbye May...Hello June~

Wow, May was quite the month here at the Nest. 

My Grandma May Geer (my mom's mom) passed away on the 23rd-Exactly 3 months before her 93rd birthday. It really shocked me that she passed on...I had just talked to her a few days prior and she sounded so strong! But we had a wonderful conversation which ended with me saying, "I love you Grandma." Her reply was, "I love you too honey." 
All 3 of her children were around her when she left this world.
It doesn't get much better then that♥ 

Grandma and Grandpa are together once again~♥

On the way home from the funeral we got a call from our daughter Ronnie~ She was in the hospital.  She was at work and passed out.  She is having a hard time keeping any weight on.  She spent 4 days in the hospital having lots of tests done... The good news is we had her daughter Noelle with us... Ronnie has put on 8 pounds too! 

Here is Noelle, the little booger butt we are blessed to watch over.

Peek a boo! (17 months old)

Lastly, here are some fun pictures I took of Tim's prom group. His Prom was ALSO in May...

Tim and his date Beverly.

Miss Beautiful & Mr. GQ

The guys pulled together and rented a limo.

Here's the group that ended up in the limo~It's a good thing the limo driver had a good sense of humor :)
I love these kids.

The guys beautiful dates.

Timmy will be graduating June 15th~ He has been offered a job as a electrician's apprentice... Which I have a feeling he will take though his heart is in missions. This fall he plans on going to Thailand with his youth pastor to help dampen human trafficking of children. Whatever you do son, know we are proud of you.

  So without further ado I say Goodbye to May and Hellooooo June!
It's time to get back to some crafting don't you all think? :)  (Seriously, Christmas is RIGHT around the corner people!)


  1. Robin, please don't tell me Christmas is right around the corner! :)
    May sounds like it was a really full month. I'm so sorry about your Grandma. I still miss my Grandpa.
    Hope Ronnie begins feeling better. I sorta wish I had her problem :)
    Noelle is such a cutie!
    The prom goers are lovely!

  2. Yay, a post! It's good to get caught up on your news. So sorry to hear of Grandma May's passing, reaching 93 is quite a milestone. I'm so happy to hear that you'd spoken to her just a couple of days before and that all her kids were by her side.

    Wow, that's really something about Ronnie. I'm so glad to hear she's doing better and has put on a few pounds. That Noelle is just such a sweetie. I know you loved having her.

    And then a prom in the mix--great photos. I always enjoy seeing the "kids" all dressed up.

    You have had quite a month Robin. I hope that things will be calmer for you in June. Please take time to rest and get caught up with yourself after all that happened in May.

  3. Awesome prom shots!! I love those. I am sorry about your Grandma. I am glad she lived a long life though. Noelle is adorable. Have a wonderful week.

  4. Wow! What a busy month!
    You are blessed to have had your Grandmother around for as long as you did. I lost both of mine before I was 15. I am sure there is great comfort in knowing that she has been reunited with her friends and family.
    It's good to see a post from you! I hope your daughter is feeling better soon!

  5. Great photos! Sorry about your grandmother.Hubby lost his 98 yr old grandma in May also.
    So glad you were able to chat with her and tell her you loved her!!

  6. You did have a busy month! Sorry to hear about your grandma. It's hard to lose a grandparent.

    Funny that you mentioned Christmas...I had just the slightest Christmas itch today :o)

  7. Robin,

    I am so sorry for your loss. I know it must be so difficult to lose such a wonderful grandma. You can go to MatthewWest.com and put her picture on a Memorial Wall and share her story. I found it today by accident.

    Your son and his date look breath-taking. Is that your backyard? AMAZING!

    Looks like he definitely has God's calling and blessing in his life. You did a great job in raising such a fine son!

    Love and Hugs ~ Kat

  8. Sis- You are one of the most positive people I know- and love.:) Grandma is with Grandpa again and can enjoy new memories. Praise God! Noelle could not be any cuter and you know I am praying for Ronnie. Timmy is on his way to great memories of his own. My sister taught English in Taiwan years ago and loved it. Thailand is going to be amazing for TImmy and what a great reason to go! The need is so great. Loved the pics from prom! What a fun group! Love, Me

  9. So sorry about your Grandma. It was nice that all her children were there at the end though. Your photos are great as always and that lil sweetie is sure growing! What a doll! I'll be praying for her Mom.

  10. So sorry to hear about your grandma :(

    omg, I always thought that ronniw looked too little! glad she packing on some poundage!

    and omg...noelle...sigh*

  11. Is this the Grandma that was blind you posted not too long ago in the generational photo with the baby climbing on the piano? Sorry. Fun prom time, looks like a good group of kids. Congrats and best wished to your son! Prayers for your daughter's health.

  12. In the merry month of may...everything and anything can happen...and it sounds like it did!

    What a wonderful thing that you got to have that precious conversation with your Grandma before she passed.

    I'm sending prayers up for Ronnie...sounds like she's a strong young lady and her body needs to be strong too! :) Noelle, as always, is such a cutie!

    The prom shots were very fun, Robin! Loved all the colors of the dresses.

    Blessings to your son in his endeavors. May he be a life and world changer!

  13. Sissy: great pics with many blessings all around. XOXO

  14. Hi Robin~

    I am so sorry to hear about your grandma. It is still hard to lose someone you love, even if you know they have lived a good, long life. I am glad to hear that Ronnie has been able to gain some weight, and is feeling better. AND as for Noelle, well she is just as cute as can be! I can't believe she is 17 months old!

    It definitely looks like the prom group had a blast! That is so neat that your son has a heart for missions. I am sure the Lord will bless that desire. Our church (University Presbyterian in Seattle) is sending a couple of college students to Thailand's Red Light District this summer. I will be praying for your son and his youth pastor as they go to Thailand...

    I sure hope you are having a good week!

    Blessings, :)

  15. Such fun photos! I love the one of the baby girl behind the curtain...so sweet!

    Jamie :)

  16. Oh my goodness, Robin, I'm so sorry to read of your Grandmother's passing. Didn't you take a 5 generation photo recently with her in it? What a treasure that will always be for your family.
    What a darling pic of your Grandparents here. I'm glad you shared it with us.
    The Prom pics were SO ADORABLE!!! What a man your son has become. It sounds like all his future plans are ones you can be very, very proud of.
    And about Mt. Saint Helens...we were living in Eugene at the time. It was such an amazing event, I'll never forget. My husband was attending Graduate School at the U of O. We only spent three years there, but loved every minute. I'll never get over seeing the forest looking like a bunch of toothpicks lying on the ground.
    I'll be praying for your Ronnie. I was glad to read about the weight gain.
    Take care of yourself,
    Mary Lou

  17. Hi Robin,

    Glad to see you. Again, I'm so sorry about your Grandma's passing. It sounds like she lived a long, wonderful life.

    Noelle is just precious!! I hope Ronnie continues to do well and put on some weight.

    Your son and his date are gorgeous!! Beautiful prom pictures. I know you are so proud of him.

    Hope you are having a great week.♥

  18. Hi Robin
    I was so sorry to hear about your Grandma. I did e-mail you on the 23rd - I hope you got it. It's been such a difficult time for you recently, you have been in my prayers a lot.
    I am glad to hear that Ronnie is putting weight on now. That's great news. You must have been so worried.
    Loved seeing the new cutie pictures of Noelle. I am sure she has been the sunshine through all this.
    Tim is so handsome. I enjoyed seeing his prom pictures. He looks so like Ronnie. It would be such an amazing experience for him to to to Taiwan. I know he will do great whatever he chooses.
    Thinking of you today and sending a big hug.

  19. I am so sorry for the loss of your Grandma. Grandmas are such special people. I miss mine both so very much : (. I love that you said she is together again with her husband. Very sweet!

    LOVE the prom pictures. So pretty. It looks like they had a ton of fun :).

    LOVE the pictures of your grand daughter also. She is just about as cute as she can be. Oh my!

  20. Sorry to hear about your Grandma. (((hugs)))

    I sure hope the doctors figure out why your daughter isn't feeling well. Praying for you all...sounds like its been a roller coaster ride of a month for you all.


  21. What beautiful kids you have!!! That lil grandbaby is just a growing so fast..my goodness! Enjoy every second and I will be praying for your daughter. Xoxox Susie

  22. Prayers for your daughter and your son! What a handsom young man he is! Looking forward to your next crafts! Michelle

  23. Noelle is such a doll- I miss having chubby cheeks and hands around the house- she reminds me so much of Sam when she was that age, with her "smiling eyes."
    Hope Ronnie is feeling better. And yay for Tim! You are all in my prayers.

  24. Robin great pictures! I love the one of your grandmother and grandfather!

  25. Robin.

    YOu just can not know how much your comment to me today encouraged me so completely! I swear it was JUST the word I needed. Thanks so much.

  26. I'm so sorry to hear about your Grandma. Glad you were able to say your goodbye in such a sweet way. ((hugs)))

  27. Hi Robin, just wanted to say hello. I've been thinking of Ronnie and hoping that she's doing much better now. You still have Tim's graduation coming up--that's always a fun time but emotional too...

    Have a lovely weekend!

  28. Hi Robin,
    Your son has a heart for missions, which is so admirable and fulfilling. He can use his job skills in future doing missions.

  29. Robin, I have followed your blog for years and as of yet have not posted a comment. I LOVE your blog. Regarding your son, I work at a small Christian college in Michigan that focuses on missions. We'd love for him to check it out sometime. Let me know if he is interested.


Love hearing from you~Sorry but I can no longer take comments from Anonymous due to so much spam~
