Wednesday morning April 30th at 8:15 AM (MDT) our sixth grand child was born, a girl named Grace Marilyn. At birth she weighed 7#, 4 oz and was 20 inches long. Our son Paul and daughter-in-law Pauletta are rejoicing on this happy occasion. Grace was born at home under the care of a midwife and Carole was able to be present for this blessed event. Grace joins her older brother Michael who is 18 months old.
Carole flew down to El Paso, TX on Tuesday evening April 29th arriving there about 9:50 PM. Our son Paul called on the way to the airport to say that Pauletta’s water had broken after he had left home. Regular contractions began around 2:00 AM and Grace was born at 8:15 AM. Carole was rejoicing that she could be there for the birth of our sixth grand child and our third grand daughter.
Our son Paul is in his first year of teaching math at the Mesilla Valley Christian School in Las Cruses, New Mexico. They have enjoyed their time in New Mexico and Paul is anticipating another year of teaching for the 2008-09 school year.
