Life is full of the unexpected. Our youngest son and daughter-in-law were expecting a new baby. This would be our 34th grandchild. Unfortunately, there were some complications when the baby was born and she had to stay the NICU. We then had a dilemma. We were the only ones able to go and help the new mother, the new baby and the rest of the three children and, of course, our son. We asked permission to go for a week and help with the new baby. Senior missionaries are given a lot more latitude when it comes to family matters. So, we are now in Georgia with our son's family. Fortunately, mother and baby girl are doing fine and came home from the hospital. Meanwhile, I was able to teach a family history lesson during Sunday School time and also teach the High Priests during Priesthood Meeting. The benefits of traveling to a new ward where they aren't tired of hearing from you.

We will be here in Georgia for a week then back to Annapolis and our digitization
