Ahhh…. life is good… Summer meant many things to me as a child. But the number one thing I always remember was getting to go to Grandma and Grandpa Willey’s house for one week long with NO PARENTS. This was my favorite part of summer.
This is the first of many summers for my kids to enjoy the same thing. Tucker and Sawyer have been on the farm since Sunday night. I will go on Thursday to join them. They are having the time of their lives… They have called about two times a day which is far less than I was expecting. They have evidently been giving each other rides on the lawnmower. This is safe, right? My mother-in-law would never put my children in harm’s way:-) I had a city grandma so this farm thing may take a few summers for me to get used to leaving them there without me, but if their phone calls are any clue to how things are going…. they’re going great! So far they have ridden the lawn mower, caught grasshoppers, and gone swimming. The county fair starts on Wednesday so they really went up on the perfect week. Their 9 year old cousin Cooper (from KC) is there also and the 3 of them are having the best time together.
Where is Porter? Well, I thought I would ease Granny B into the Ross children and not throw all 3 of them at her at once. Porter has been at his own Granny Camp over at Grandma Willey’s house the last few days. According to the lasted reports, he is now nearly off of this… My mom is a Wonder Woman! I know, I know… a 20 month old still on a bottle… blah, blah, blah…. I feel guilty enough about. He doesn’t need it all the time, just when he’s tired. Evidently mom is having great success with him. We’ll see how his mom does when he comes home. The cabinet is being cleared out tomorrow! No more ba ba’s! Lord help me!
The living room is now painted, the kids’ hallway is now painted, all the trim is now painted, the living room window panes are now painted, the doors to the kids’ rooms and hallway door are almost painted, and the living room tv cabinet is painted! God Bless Grandma’s!!!! My kids are so lucky to not only have one Grandma but two that would leap tall buildings in a single bound for them:-) And I am so lucky to have these women by my side giving me my sanity back:-)
