Day 35: Way before I was born ...

Bear with me, I am getting carried away.  

I've actually taken framed pictures off the wall, 
and cleaned my scanner to copy these special old photos.

So young! I wonder if she envisioned a family of ten?

My mothers parents, my grandparents. 
William was a farmer, Mary a mother and housewife.

Aunt Fern and Uncle Les were the oldest of the 
five sisters and two brothers that lived.

Holding her tenth child, I can't imagine
that kind of strength ...

and so many people to care for you.
