Not a blogger.
Not an unemployed woman of leisure.
Not a busy church volunteer.
Not random or worried or frazzled.
Just a grandma.
A grandma who sits and listens.
and listens... because this boy likes to talk!
A grandma who asks questions
and gets all kinds of very interesting answers.
maybe more than I wanted to know, because, this boy really, really likes to talk. (and he knows a lot about a lot of stuff!)
A grandma who gets to see the world through his eyes for a change.

I'm a grandma who bakes muffins so he can lick the bowl and the beater.
I'm a grandma who snaps pictures while he's eating ice cream.
or mowing the lawn.
|willingly mowing the lawn. such a hard worker.|
A grandma who loves seeing her grandson spending time with his grandpa.
|learning about power tools.|
This week I'm a grandma on a mission: To build a ton of memories as we embark on new adventures together.
|visiting at a friends house and getting to drive the 4 wheeler.|
This week is about reconnecting. Showing him his family roots. Seeing family members who are part of his heritage. Pointing out history (that's the school I went to and so did your mom. there's the house your mom lived in as a child. this is where MY grandma lived!)
|there is a picture of my dad standing in front of this tree-- before it was moved to this rest area. I have a picture of me in front of this tree too.|
This week will go much to quickly and it might be a whirlwind. Visiting people. Camping. Going to the Fair.
Those memory building adventures taking precedent over everything else.
Because this week.... I'm a grandma.
|happy grandma. blessed grandma.|
