I wrote these words a year ago: Today I’m thankful for grandsons. Fridays are special for many reasons … the end of the work week, hooray … but also it is playtime at Grandma and Granddad’s house on Fridays. Jason and Abby steal away for a few hours of time for themselves … and Colin and Dylan play with us! I love playing with them … we chase, hide, laugh, vroom cars, dance, hunt tigers, and even scream (when something is really funny). We have a loose routine … we fix a kid friendly supper, have a new small toy (dollar or two) out to play with, and then the rest of the evening takes its own path. Sometimes we take a walk around the block or go play at the nearby park … even in the dark … which is particularly fun. Grandsons are such fun! Love these young boys! Love being a part of their routine!
Today I can I am still very grateful for grandsons! The routine is the same and the fun just keeps coming! Just this week …
- Dylan was playing with Brad. He asked Brad, “What’s this?” pulling on Brad’s beard. Brad told him it is his beard, and then he asked, “Dylan, do you have a beard?” Dylan rubbed his chin, and said, “My beard is all gone!”
- Colin watched Aunt Damen open her birthday presents at the dinner table the other day. Damen received a very nice hair dryer (ceramic and ionized). Colin burst out with excitement, “Oh, now you can fix your hair like a princess!”
I should carry around pencil and paper … the things they say are so much fun … and insightful at times.
I’m thankful for these young boys … and the opportunity to love on them weekly!
