The Loves of my life....

My poor family... Summer Semester is almost over! Hallelujah! ASL Lab, Political Science, and Microsoft PowerPoint. I didn't realize how much time I would be on the computer. But hopefully all this time will turn out to a great grade. 

In June of this year, I actually had all SEVEN of my kids with me. It was WONDERFUL!

Here is the break-down of my favorite people.

1st Generation is my mom, Grace Jewell & my step-dad, Will. Then there is my husband Rodger and myself. Rodger is the best step-father I ever could have dreamed of for my 7 kids! Then my kids from oldest to youngest.
Adam 12/21/85 (wife Star)
Holly 7/1/87
Brittany 4/10/89 (fiance Jordan)
Ashlyn 1/29/10 (Britts daughter)

Adrian 4/11/14 (Court's son #2)

Spencer 7/1/98
Yep, they are twins. My 3 beautiful step-daughters all live in Utah. Brandi (RJ husband) Heather (fiance Esmond) and their son Jaxon 10/21/14, And Candace (a cosplayer)
 I have an amazing family. I know that no matter what problem I"m having... If nothing else... I have someone to talk to.
I love having them around and I have so much fun with my 6 grandchildren.

Dateline: Thursday July 15, 2015 Time: 10:55pm PST
My AMAZING family!!! (June 6, 2015)

So very much has been going on in my life... right now I'm down to the last week of the Summer session at San Joaquin Delta College and I'm in Political Science, ASL lab, and a Computer applications: Powerpoint Class. I would be lying if I said that Poli Sci was my most interesting, probably my favorite class!! And since its an online class it is so very interesting to read so many different personalities and beliefs there are about the USA and all that entails its Government structure from the Founding Father's up to today. And with next year (2016) approaching and it being a Presidential year next I WILL BE INVOLVED- in someones campaign, the Republican party, or maybe some State issue- if I had to choose one of those it would be California's High Speed Rail
Spencer ready for Yearbook Pics

Anyway, other than that, Saren and Spencer had their Senior Pictures were today. What an eye opener that was. To see my babies sitting there, getting ready to start their Senior year at Bear Creek High School is a bitter sweet moment..

Chad has been accepted into the Pacific Conservatory For Performing Arts in Santa Maria California. Over 500 people auditioned for this school and they accepted 16 males and 16 females- so yeah this is a HUGE honor.  He has been up at BSA Camp John Mensinger for the summer but he had to come home this last Sunday morning. He broke his foot Thursday the 9th LARPING!!! For the love of all that is good.... LARPING??? ARGH!!

Saren being Saren
Holly is a nanny in Vacaville for these 2 beautiful twin girls.
Courtney, Jorge and their 2 boys (Emilio and Adrian) moved from Rohnert Park (Santa Rosa) to Manteca.
Brittany and Ashlyn came out for Ashlyn came out in June and Jordan Welsh came with them. He is Brittany's boyfriend, well now he is her fiance. He proposed before the two of them rode their bikes across the Golden Gate Bridge- they are SO PERFECT together.- I can hardly wait for April 16th to get here so he will be part of the family.
Adam is getting married on September 5th to Star. That brings me up to 6 grandchildren, Destany (10) Harmony (6) - Star's girls, Ashlyn (5) - Brittany's daughter, Emilio (3) and Adrian (14 months) - Courtney and Jorge's boys, and Jaxon (20 months) - Heather and Esmond's . And Saren & Spencer just turned 17!!!

I received my Ameriican Sign Language Certificate from Delta- saying that I am fluent in 2 languages now. How cool is that? I also  made Honor Roll too!

FOUR GENERATIONS: Me (48), Grace (my mom) (72), Brittany (25) and Ashlyn Grace (5)

Rodger is working for the enemy (Volt- a temporary agency_) and he is working at Apple, Inc. and of course HE HATES IT!!! I definitely need to put my ear to ground an find him a new job. He deserves to be happy.

He did turn 50 in June and Holly and Matt bought RUSH tickets for us to go on July 23rd. They are his favorite group and this is probably their last world tour. I am SO EXCITED!

Anyway, I'm going to try to get some sleep for the night. I have tons of stuff to do tomorrow.

Have a great night world,
Love Julie
