Calvin and I miss not having the kids close. We are very grateful that they have good lives where they are and that we see them as often as we do, but sometimes we still like to imagine that they live a half mile away and the grandkids can skip to our house (after they finish crawling of course).
With two sons in the military and two sons-in-law whose businesses aren't represented in our town, neither hopping, skipping, nor jumping to the grandparents is going to happen at this house.
But, what we do get most days of the week are pictures and videos via Instagram. And for that technological nicety and luxury, we're cognizant and grateful. It's the next best thing to them being here.
|Michelle: Eliza and her hero.|
|Ande: Zeph put all his waffle pieces in his bib pocket to hid them |
and is only eating the whipped cream.
|Cali: Because a sweet potato can never have enough holes and little boys love to stab stuff.|
|Grace: Happy Birthday to the best dad in the world today!|
|Abe: He's got his mama's eyes.|
|Ty: If you give a girl a bow....she'll ask to wear all of them.|
