Catching up With the Little Ones

Mid-June is fast approaching and I’m about to begin packing. Off to visit the grands!

Because it was a rainy day, I went to town and found each little person a book. (My secret delight!)  The 14 year old will be getting some summer clothes this time, since he hasn’t read any of the books he received in the past…. except for the photo journals we send him after visits.

Every summer it is improved upon bit by bit and has turned the Fair into a more family oriented destination.

We will be meeting Pepper the new dog for the first time. Baby Forrest is moving about far more than when we last visited, Leo is now a talker, and Ivy has turned into a junior gardener.

Ivy says, “eight more sleeps” until we get to enjoy each other again!

I left my heart in Haiti… They tell me I’ll never get it back! Do visit updates here as well!

    Safe travels Marie! The kids will love their books. What a shame Skylar hasn’t read the books you have so carefully picked for him. It is his loss. Have a wonderful time and post lots of pictures when you get home!

    Alice, Skyler now has a trampoline to enjoy. It is wonderful to see him love something that involves both friends and exercise…even if he doesn’t curl up with many books.

    Happy visit with your grands! “Goodnight Underwear” cracked me up. 🙂 My dad, brother and I had some running joke about an underwear sandwich when I was little — all one had to do was say the words and we’d all collapse in giggles.

    Happy weekend and upcoming trip!
