If you have grandchildren, do you miss them when they are away? Do they live far away? Our two youngest grands were in Germany for a vacation in late June. They had a wonderful time and shared lovely photos with us yesterday. Upon their return one was sick and therefore we had not seen them for about a month. That's too long for this grandmother! Our eldest grandson, that lives with us now while attending school, lived in New Hampshire. That was a challenge for me. We made a point of travelling to see him at least once a quarter.
The grands are staying with us for a few days. It has been so hot and humid the last few days we are limited to early morning bocce games.
They love to go to the school playground at the school that their Dad and Aunt attended. We all walked over for them to play and watched the antics of our monkeys.
Miles is known as the butterfly whisperer in our family. He loves nature and is able to have butterflies light on his hand. He doesn't hurt them. I think it helps that he has lemonade juice on his hands!
Grayden made this German checkers game before we were married and the boys enjoyed playing with this simple game.
We grilled hamburgers, had ice cream, made microwaved s'mores (too hot to make fire in chimnea), played games, and just enjoyed ourselves. We are so blessed to have grandchildren!
