I feel like it’s been forever since I’ve sat down and actually done a real writing piece but alas, my schedule with my new part-time job and the prep for our big Easter drama has allowed me little time to clean the bathroom, let alone pen any semi-scintillating blog posts.
And so today I will regale you not with words, but with a few more pictures of our unexpected meet up with that grand son of mine and the grandchildren he and his grand wife have so thoughtfully provided Steve and me with.
Nathan and Sarah: the Smith Sibling Wranglers of the Smith Siblings.
I could not believe how attached Madi was to Sarah! She took one look at me, took one look at Steve and then made a beeline for Sarah, where she stayed for most of our visit. But who can blame her? I like hanging out with Sarah, too!
I love this “wise woman of the world” look, like she is about to say, “Let me just tell you a thing or two, Grandma.”
And off she goes. The unintelligible pontifications.
Playing sword fighting with Aunt Sarah.
I must show you Noah’s sophisticated big boy hair. Is that not a hoot?
A few playground pictures.
The Smith Dads. Nathan and Steve have always been close and are growing even closer over all the home improvement jobs that Nathan is doing at his recently purchased first home. He calls Steve for advice and then sends pictures of the finished products. Steve is having a very large time, doing long distance home improvements with his son.
Of course, I like Nathan just a little, too.
We didn’t end up with a great selfie . . .
but we had fun in the process.
And at the end of the visit? Madi was still attached to Sarah. Love those ladies.
What about you? Do you have siblings? How many?
Were you close growing up and are you close now?
I love stories of brothers and sisters.
Thrift stores, fuzzy socks
and conversing with my Yorkie
are all on the list of things I love.
