Our four-year-old grandson on his bicycle
In September we spent some quality time with our two grandsons in Wisconsin. We are constantly amazed at H who has taken to technology with great enthusiasm. He has his own computer which is a rebuilt older model which contains pre-school games and kid programs which teach shapes, colors, letters and other pre-kindergarden concepts. I watch in amazement as his face lights up with wonder at the possibilities each day brings.
Our second grandson, P, celebrated his first birthday while we visited and we enjoyed watching him devour his "personal" first birthday cake with much enthusiasm. He idolizes his big brother but has his own special way of approaching the world. Already he seems more self-contained and quietly observant. It will be interesting to see how each developes in coming years.
Four years ago we had no grandchildren. Now we have three with two more on the way. I must say I love being a grandma although I wish I could see my two long-distance grandsons more often.
For now I must be content to spoil my local granddaughter pictured here in her sunny yellow hat. We have a play-date with her every Monday afternoon for three hours. At fifteen months she runs everywhere and is rapidly adding words to her vocabulary. Her latest word is: eyebrow.
I don't often devote space to these sweeties but it is a way to share photos with extended family--so here are my heart's treasures. Who knew grandparenting could be so rewarding?
