It's been a long time . . .

I don't know how I forgot about this blog. It's been a whole year and some since my last post. Since then,  there's been a wedding, and two more grandsons added to my precious gems.My middle son added another WP to his family, and my youngest son has his first SP. I have a total of six precious gems (grandsons). I am so blessed!

The thoughts of kids . . .

Today, I had KZ2 and we took my sister to the doctor. He's such a loving and happy little guy. He shared with me that he was feisty. I asked him who said that and he said his brother called he that. The things children say!

This week with my KZs

Wow! September 1st is already here, and we back to school is near. My grandsons are visiting me this week because their mom is back to work and soon they will be back in school. It's always a joy to have them with me. KZ2 is four and holding his own when he's playing with his brother. He doesn't let them KZ1 get over on him. I try to let them solve their disputes before I step in, but sometimes the only thing that works is a time out for both of them.

Winding down . . .

The final days with my grandsons ended with four of the five. We had a great time this past week! Kalahari was a pleasurable and great over-niter. The indoor water park was exciting. The guys were able to go and come with little supervision throughout the area. They really liked that. I would like to go again. I am so thankful to God that I was able to spend this time with them. I pray that we can spend time again like this next year.

Day Three . . .

Another busy and full day with WP1 and KZ1. I guess I'm trying to get so much done while they are with me that I'm bushed. They are like the energizer bunny. They keep going and going and going. So far, we have done what I planned to do with them. We did make it to the beach. They really enjoyed themselves. Tomorrow is another big day! We are going to Kalahari Water park in PA. We will be staying overnight. Nothing too big but just a chance to enjoy the water park and not have to drive home until the next day. Well at least this will give me a chance to rest; just a little bit. I'm thanking God for this time and prayerfully asking for traveling mercy again.

Our Vacation . . .

Today I picked up WP1 and KZ1. They are going to spend the week with me. It's going to be an adventure. So far we visited the MAM; only to find out that they were closed today. I thought we were playing a role in the 39 Clues. Then we went to Eagle Rock Mountain. Neither of the boys had been there before, so that was an interesting adventure. they used their iPads to take pictures. We stopped fir a short pit stop at Nishuane Park; the swing was a welcoming exercise for me. In fact KZ1 asked if I could fit on the swing. I told him that was an insult. He didn't know what that meant so WP1 explained it to him. KZ1 said he didn't mean it like that. All in all we had a rather adventurous time. Our final destination before we went to see WP1's dad was the barber shop. Yes, it was time for that dreaded haircut. I know we are going to have a good time this week. This is only the beginning.

It's been awhile!

KZ1 and KZ2 spent the day with me. It's been awhile since they have spent the day with me. They are growing so fast.
