The Weekend Roundup “J”

It’s time for the Weekend Roundup and we are on the letter J with the following prompts.

1. Starts with “J.”
2. A Favorite.
3. “J”ump.

Starts with “J”. We named our firstborn Joshua. We call him Josh. His sister called him Foffie when she was little. Others who love him call him Joshie. He is strong and courageous.

He lights up a room whenever he enters and you don’t have to take a mother’s word for it. Friends and associates will tell you the same thing.

A Favorite:

Josh with his niece who loves him and always recognizes him and she even recognizes his favorite jersey, The Sounders jersey. When I wear my Sounders coat she looks at it and says Josh!

Jump: Young and Old jumping, our niece Hope with her grandfather or Dzeda, our Pop in his late 80’s jumping on Hope’s trampoline.

We’ve added a J to our family in 2015, our DIL Jamie. She’s another favorite of ours and is a wonderful mom to our grandchildren and wife to our second born son, Daniel.

Joining up with Tom The Backroads Traveller for The Weekend Roundup.

How is your weekend rounding up?

  1. …your family sure has a lot of ‘J’s! Your ‘J’umping dad was quite an inspiration. My granddaughter has a trampoline, but iI wouldn’t try it on a bet. Thanks Ellen for ‘J’oining in this week, enjoy.

  2. You have many wonderful J’s in your life. I rather like ‘J’! There are lots of J’s in my family…four grandparents, four uncles, several nephews. And I used to enjoy jumping, though so can hardly remember those days. :). Have a wonderful Saturday. Your friend, ‘J’

  3. You have a lovely family – Josh, Hope and Jamie are to be proud of! It’s been forever since I’ve been on a trampeline (wheelchairs can do that 🙂 but it is so noce to see multiple generations jumping with joy!

  4. A very nice family post. I know that great niece loves being on the sled being pulled by her FAVORITE UNCLE. We have two Josh’s in our family, our great granddsughter’s husband and then their son, JoshII. our first great great.

  5. I just love the picture of Hope jumping with her grandfather, so precious! Does she remember this day? Your son Josh is a very good looking gentleman, as are your other children! Enjoy your week, Ellen!

  6. Especially love the trampoline shot … my mom too jumped with her great-grands when she was in her late 80s! Cyndi (our daughter) and I agree that is one of our favorite memories of “ Grammy”.
