The Boys

I have to brag on my two nine year old grand boys....

Hudsaon's soccer team, Australia, came in second in the city tournament. He has played hard this year and I am so glad that he accomplished his goals in soccer.

While Landon and Hudson are step brothers, they are really good friends as well. I am so proud of these young men.

Landon excelled in school this year...remaining on the Honor Roll every semester as well as winning the Most Responsible Award in his classroom. His teacher did share that he is a trickster as well. He teases her by hiding her coffee cup. He really is a sweetheart and I know life has great things in store for him!

Also, I am having issues with the moderation of comments on my blog. I usually get an email and I mark publish. Now I am having to go into the comment section on the settings to publish comments. Is anyone else having that problem. I did not notice it while I was at Grimmwood but when I got home I noticed I had NO comments for Friday or Saturday and that is very unusual. So if you comment it may take a while for me to get it published. Sorry for the confusion but I am not sure what to do about it. Any suggestions? I am technically challenged. I would really like to get someone to update my blog for me and make it more user friendly but as it is just a hobby, I am reluctant to spend that kind of money on a blog.  Thanks to all of you who take the time to read and comment. I was really getting upset when it appeared I was all alone in Blog Land.:)

You can change it in Settings and Layout. You can update it however you want. :)

That made me giggle about Landon hiding the coffee cup. That is sweet.
Amelia has done a good job of incorporating the families. That ain't easy!

Your pair of 9 year olds are cuties, Arlene. I give them two thumbs on their accomplishments.

From what I understand, the comment issue has to do with the changes made regarding privacy issues.

After reading this, I decided to go and look and see if I had any unmoderated comments. There were three! Thanks for the heads up!

I wonder if it has anything to do with the new GDPR in the European Union, which took effect on Friday.

I still plan to continue with comment moderation, but am going to go and look at my settings and see if anything needs to be updated.

Loved seeing the boys ... it's wonderful they are such good friends as well as stepbrothers. Was just praying for them this morning!

Thanks for the comments Ladies, Like you, I wondered if it had to do with the European notifications. It is frustrating but I guess I will continue to take that extra step. Mrs T I am glad you found your comments. It is upsetting when there are none.

They are both so sweet and smart--I can understand you being so very proud of these boys, Arlene!

It is so great that the boys are good friends, as well as step-brothers.

As a few others mentioned, you can change the way comments show up in settings. I have never used comment moderation. There have only been a couple of comments in over 10 years that I had to delete.

Those are two wonderful grandsons! I come from a family of teasers, so I would love Landon!
I am having the same trouble with comments and saw you left a comment on the blogger board. It seems a lot of people are having the same issue. I hope they fix it soon!

Terri, I did consider going back to open comments! I have had a few that were not nice so that made me install the moderation. What is wrong with people? My mom taught me to be polite and at least be quiet if I cannot say something nice.

Mari..I did leave a comment and got no response. I un subscribed after being inundated with crazy emails of unhelpful responses. I think I am just going to go with the flow for now.
