Vincent started a new Junior Legion of Mary Praesidium here in the home.
With so many grandchildren, Family Night (Fridays) seemed an opportune time to have a meeting.
We all join them for the rosary at the beginning of the meeting.
It is a very special way for Grandpa to touch their lives.
Fourth of July party at Dom and Sarah’s!
Father Flood enjoys the evening.

Little Juliette broke her leg on our trampoline. For years we have had one, planted a St. Benedict medal under it. Then we got a new, safe one…net and all! Forgot about the medal. Juliette broke her leg. Needless to say we put a medal underneath it once again.
Lots of children!
Grammy Estelle and Theresa.
