First of all, thank you for all the support and wisdom you shared with me this past week. Your words were very much appreciated and not taken lightly.
Enough of the seriousness for awhile…a special delivery came to my house and I must share it with you!
This sweet adorable young lady just arrived from Florida!!!! I get to have her here with me for a month! Of course I have to share her with the other side of the family but nonetheless after a whole year of not seeing her, she is here!
Her parents can’t come, which makes me sad but she could!
She is eleven years old and my eldest grandchild. How did I get old enough to have a grandchild this old already?
She has been a source of joy and love from the beginning of her existence.
I am so happy to have this time with her.
The little’s adore her. She is such a big help with them.
The little’s have been on vacation at their aunt and uncles this past week(the lucky ducks)but I know that when they see her tomorrow they will scream with delight.
The little’s have been away doing things like…
…fishing, canoeing and playing in the ice cold water even though the weather hasn’t been very warm…
Yes, she caught this fish! I hear she put on her own worms and even touched the fish! I’ve told you, she isn’t scared of much of anything.
These are 2 of my favorites…
We didn’t have daycare this past week, so my sister and brother in law were brave enough to take them on. They are the ones that live where I call a little piece of heaven.
The little’s are so loved and lucky!
Even though I have missed them, I know they have been in good hands. I have welcomed this break to sleep past 6 and not having to leave sad children behind to go to work.
I have enjoyed the few moments of peace and quiet.
We have seen them almost every evening through the wonderful world of Skype, to hear about their day and give them kisses goodnight. If you have loved ones that live at a distance, this is so worth having and did I tell you it’s free?
Have I told you how much I love being their grandma?
And next week…my “baby”, who turned 21 recently, will be flying home for a month. He recently finished his 2 year college program and will be starting a police academy this fall. So he’s taking a break from the hot Florida sun and coming home.
I love the sound of that!
I can hardly wait to hug this guy.
My other kids cannot come home which makes me sad but I am focusing on the one’s that are here and enjoying every second I have with them.
I am blessed. I know this but sometimes I forget.
Are you blessed? How? I would love to hear about your blessings.
Hope you are having a good weekend!
To all you father’s and those that stand in as father’s to the children in your life, Happy Fathers Day.
Until next time, love and hugs, Lori
