Watching my son work on his new house is so exciting. I can envision the improvements he has begun and has planned. Some of it just needs a coat of paint and it will be dramatically improved. Some – needs more than that. They are creative people, so I have no doubts the transformation will be awesome.
Cousins. Cousins. Cousins. The two oldest are having a good time together. Swimming lessons, picnics, sleeping in a home-made fort, all the grand things that go along with being young in summer. I remember the times in Minnesota I played this way with my cousins (just a couple of decades ago – haha!).
We did a little fishing, and my grandson caught two. My granddaughter and I will have to try again. The kids then decided to play a game of hide-n-seek with my son’s flip-flop in a beach volleyball court. The only problem was my grandson couldn’t remember where he hid his shoe and my granddaughter hadn’t peeked of course, that would be cheating. We dug – and dug – and dug – and never did come up with the missing flip-flop. There will have to be a quick trip to the store before his next swim lesson later this morning.
At the end of the long holiday, we were watching fireworks on TV and I noticed the pair of them fading into the couch. We got ready for bed and made it half-way through a book before they were asleep. I wasn’t long behind them.
