A Fall Sport!
This is a sport that all can participate in.
Yup, Cross Country!
Lulu, Levi, Ila May and Silas all
run Cross Country.
This was their first meet, after weeks of practice.
Mom (Kimmy) is their head cheerleader.
“You Can do this Lulu!”
Look at Lulu’s smile as she sees her mom.
This brings back memories of when Kimmy
ran Cross Country!
I'm also a cheerleader.
Isaac is cheering them on, too!
They all did well and can't wait for their next meet.
And now for another Cross Country!
I drove to Tacoma (used to be Seattle) for a few days.
I needed to see our other grandchildren!
It has been way too long since we've hugged.
(thanks to the virus)
I took the 8 hour trip all by myself.
The weather was beautiful.
When I pulled in,
the hugs started with these two.
But where is Huxley?
Oh, yeah, there's Huxley!
You have to look very carefully.
He's hiding in the couch.
That's more like it!
This is his domain,
the downstairs workbench.
Huxley loves his siblings and
will sit still only long enough for a book.
And then there is school.
Tacoma hasn't opened the schools yet.
So, like many others students
it’s at the dining room table.
While Trey is doing school, Scarlett and I read this one book over and over again.!!
Huxley napped and mom & dad worked from home.
The book we read, was about painting coffee cups.
Todd got the idea to go to a pottery shop and paint our own cups.
What a good dad!
So, off we went and
we each painted a special project.
We took a day and went to the Zoo
What a great place. So beautiful and easy to get around.
Everywhere we turned, was an exciting exhibit.
We practically had the place to ourselves.
We were there when they fed the two huge Walrus's .
The kids got to ask questions.
And they had a lot of great questions.
Learned so much.
Then, of course we went to Puget Sound.
My first love!
Oh, how I miss being there.
For dinner we had Fish-n-Chips, outside.
It was perfect.
I came home FULL!
Full of love.
Full of leaning.
Full of rain.
Full of special moments.
Full of time spent with family.
And of course.
FULL OF HUGS AND KISSES
to last until next visit!
