Boy, am I tired…! But it’s a good tired! Kids have an abundance of energy! If they didn’t I’d be worried.
The first week was with Elmise and Armon, our beautiful adopted grandchildren. The second week was with Isabella and Sydney. I took these pictures of the four grandchildren, two at a time, a week apart.
Elmise is thirteen and Armon is ten. We’re sitting in McDonald’s here having a treat before going home. We’d been to the Nature Center and were in need of some nurishment! Armon is checking out this hollow tree! Down by the river. It’s too bad the weather wasn’t nicer. Maple trees are being tapped for Maple Syrup! We came to the Maple Syrup Shack.
Then the weekend came and two more cousins came! Sydney and Isabella came to spend the next week with Grandma and Grandpa, overlapping on the weekend with Elmise and Armon. It was a good time for Elmise. It’s hard for an adolescent girl to be at grandparents house with only a younger brother. We did lots of things together, baking, playing Skip-Bo, etc. but she wasn’t truly happy until the cousins arrived! Here they are in a bed made up just for them on the floor of the sun-room. They talked and giggled way into the night like girls do! Sunday morning Elmise and Sydney styled Bella’s hair! They did a good job!
Monday, two grandkids went home and two stayed for the next week. Sydney and Isabella. We took a day and went to visit Central Michigan University for Sydney. Yes, she’s starting to look at universities to attend after high school. She’s a sophomore now! It was a good day!
We also drove through Northwood University. It’s situated in a big woods. We saw lots of deer! This was very close to campus. We spent an afternoon at the Community Center swimming pool. We had a precious time together. All our grandchildren are growing up. These are our Michigan grandchildren. We did lots of other activities together, like playing Skip-Bo, watching movies, chatting, baking, cooking, shopping, etc. These two weeks are almost over. Time is rushing by. See the next post for visits to the Butterfly House…
