Where do they come up with insightful and funny things they say? They keep us in stitches and on our toes.
Summertime means we get to spend more time with all our Grands!
We are having them one at a time - (Last Wednesday was Camp Jack -- Monday is Camp Sydney & Jack -- Campbell is asking when is Camp Campbell? -- and Clara's mommy and daddy already have her enrolled) We love getting to devote total attention to them individually and then doing some time altogether as well.
Jack found things in cabinets we haven't touched in months (or maybe years) -- all with a grin and a giggle. He can walk in a room -- size it up and find those obscure items -- TIME TO DECLUTTER
Sydney keeps us encouraged with sweet little comments like, "Nana you sure make good food" and "Papa you sure work hard." The other day after watching him work at something she complimented, "Papa you sure are patient" Every time we're with her she asks when the next sleepover is. She loves "Baby" her doll and often makes up stories about what she and Baby are doing that day. She told us Baby is Baby Rose now and her 5th birthday is July 4th. That makes her older than Syd. Guess we'll have to do something about that.

A couple of weeks ago when Terry was experiencing major vision problems in one eye - we found that covering that eye with a patch would help his ability to see clearly to drive -- We were loading up the car after Campbell's pre-school graduation and Sydney looked at him and said "Papa it takes two eyes to drive." He could see perfectly out of ONE eye -- but that kept her and her MOTHER a little nervous.

Campbell wrapped up her preschool experience at Redeemer with Graduation and a Mother / Daughter Tea earlier in the month. She is growing up so quickly and has enjoyed swim team, swimming lessons, tennis camp and is headed to Camp Kanakuk next week at Redeemer.

I was reminded of a favorite grandparenting verse this morning as I was straightening my kitchen desk and saw it in a frame there.
