This was pretty much a normal Saturday, with the usual chores, laundry, etc. Bill had to get up early to help pick up scouts from camp and then he had a job this afternoon, so I was home alone all day. I got the chores done, the laundry done, a run to the store completed, and then I did---- what did you expect? Of course, family history.
I am trying to get more familiar with Fold3, so I looked up my ancestor Edmund Bacon, who was in the Revolutionary War, to see what I could find. What I found was the widow's pension application. It contains about 20+ pages of information, including several affidavits about his service. I printed it all out. I am looking forward to studying it in more detail.
Later in the afternoon, Lisa called to see if we could watch the kids for a while so she and David could go out for dinner. Final decision - they would just spend the night. So, we had a wild and woolly evening with two of the cutest kids ever. They finally headed off to bed around 10:00.
A day can sure go from quiet to exciting in a split second! It is fun to have them here.
