Visiting Ines' s grave, Etta is 11 months old and so much more...

My baby is nursing as we had a picnic with my great grandmother. She died the year I was born. Her picture is in the locket around my neck. We took the 5 youngest children and a very pleasant afternoon. The 2 and 4 year old could not quite understand why we don't actually walk on graves. And the 7 and 8 year old were very disturbed by the graves of infants. We also found an older graveyard with my ancestor from Germany, Louis Graben. But it was his wife's grave that sent chills down my spine. 

Not everyone can find their First Mother....
