I've been scrapbooking like crazy for the last few days.  I sold most of my paper scrapping stuff and have been digital scrapbooking.  I enjoy digital scrapbooking so much more!  (It's also less messy!)

I started by joining the Daily Digi a few months ago.  For a while I was just collecting digi files but then I figured what the heck and dove right in.

Burial Search

Dodson Cemetery, Luzerne County, Pennsylvania


On Friday when we picked Hunter up from school we went in search of the Dodson Cemetery in Luzerne County, Pennsylvania.  Earlier on Friday I located where Elizabeth Jane (Savage) Thomas was buried.  I had been looking for her for quite some time.  I was searching in Columbia County and then on Friday I thought what if she was buried in Luzerne County for some reason.  I searched on Find A Grave in Luzerne County and low and behold there she was.  I was in shock.  I could not believe that after months of searching I finally found where she was.  I quickly did a search for Dodson Cemetery on Google Maps.  I showed it to Jason and he punched it into the GPS.  I was so happy when we got there and found it!

My number one lesson that I have learned so far on this journey into genealogy is that if you don't find it the first time it is worth a second look!  (or in my case a10th look).

Happy ancestor hunting!!

Update

We took Hunter to the Dr. this morning for an ankle injury that has been going on for a while now.  Two hours later he had a camouflage cast!  He broke his growth plate on the outside of his left ankle.  I am still amazed that is has taken him this long to break something!  I'm hoping tomorrow he will let me take a couple of pics so we will always remember this.  He will be in the cast for three weeks so he is going to miss most of his baseball season.  I think he was more worried about being able to go turkey hunting with my dad this weekend though.  I think they figured out a way to get him to the blind so he can still hunt!  I do feel bad, however, because it has been broke for a while.  The more he did baseball the worse it got...now we know why!

Bringing this blog back is so great.  I love being able to jot a few things down so that we/I will remember them later on.  It will help so much when I go to scrapbook this time.

I have also been working on some genealogy stuff.  It is so addicting!!  Right now I am focusing on Jason's family.  I did solve a major mystery and it was such an awesome feeling!  His 3rd great-grand-father, Joseph Thomas, was in the Civil War and he is buried in Hopewell Virginia in the City Point National Cemetery  I even found what regiment and company he was in.  I cannot wait to see what else I can uncover.  I'm hoping to go the Genealogy Society in town on Thursday after work to do some more research.  I LOVE this stuff!

Update on my cross stitch.  This one is for Jason.  It is called Nature's Mourning.  I am on page two of 24.  Who knows when this will ever get done.  I do need to order some floss that I ran out of.

Teenage Bullying

I NEVER thought I was going to have to deal with this.  Hunter is going through a really tough time right now.  I feel really bad for him and guilty at the same time.  I wish kids would think about what they are saying and or doing to others and think how they would feel it was being done to them!  I am very grateful that he has the friends he does because they are the reason I know what has been going on.  He didn't want to tell anyone because he did not want to bother them.  I feel like I have let him down somehow.  I'm hoping tomorrow will be the start to a better week for him!!  HUNTER I LOVE YOU!!!!!!!
