The past two days, the oldest two have been at their grandparents’ house: dot dot and C dub. What an amazing time they had! They caught fireflies (something we don’t seem to have at our house!), saw a groundhog and a mole’s hole, dug in the compost and found worms, went for early morning walks, saw a bluejay’s eggs, got to see their cousin Bailee play softball, buy popcorn and hamburgers at the ballpark, and eat doughnuts for breakfast. They didn’t go to bed until 11:30! If you know Eric’s mom and dad, you know how wonderful their yard is. Dot used to teach 2nd grade and one of her specialities is teaching about how God’s creation works and really showing children the beauty of the details in creation. C dub is a great storyteller. My girls love to sit in his lap and hear stories about how he grew up and about the mischievous funny things he did 🙂 The girls howl laughing and make him repeat those stories over and over.
Today they brought the girls all the way to our house because they knew it would be naptime for the other two. When Emma walked in, she had new tennis shoes that are so cute 🙂
I can’t believe all the amazing memories that must have been made on this trip. I absolutely LOVE that my children get to spend quality time with their grandparents. Eric and I are blessed with such incredible parents and I want my children to know them, love them, have specific memories with them, and learn from them. That is exactly what happened the past few days and I am so very grateful! thanks Dot and Wayne!
