These are some memories I will hold in my heart. I’ve probably mentioned this before, but I’m on the younger end of the grandkids and growing up, whenever I thought about it, I’d always feel a little bit sad that my grandparents would probably never meet my kids. I’m so glad I was quite wrong and that two weeks ago, they got to meet our third cherub and build memories with our other two.
Jack adores many people and he especially adored Grampa. The mutual affection these two Earls had for each other kinda made my heart overflow.Jack would run over to Grampa and lift his arms up and I’d say, ‘Grampa! Don’t lift him, he’s too heavy!’.
We got to spend a bit of time with them in their home, puttering around doing a few projects and I’m so happy Ev got to experience a bit of the magic of Grama’s gardens. I still have vague childhood memories of her gardens at their last place with a tire swing and creek and little pathways and I love that Ev gets a bit of the same.
Truly lovely. She was so sweet to them and would ask Grampa, while he was in the dining room and she in the living room, ‘Grampa, are you happy that you’re here?’. We told her she’d have to get a bit closer for him to hear her.
Essentially, we traipsed across the country because I wanted to take one more beach walk with my grandparents and I’m so thankful for that gift. Praying for more times but thankful for my storehouse of memories.
