Haidyn, Preston and Caitlin--ages 5, 23 months and 6 weeks
For the first time in over a year we have been able to love and cuddle all of our grandchildren in the same week--the above three in Wisconsin and the other two back home. The older two are much harder to catch being still. This posed shot of all three is the only one that wasn't a blur of activity.
This year we added the little girl, Caitlin, above and the little guy, Ethan, below. Excuse me while I blatantly post their photos for distant relatives and friends.
Ethan, 7 weeks
Clio, age 2
The joy of serving as witness and enabler as these young minds and bodies discover their world is beyond description. A hug from any of them is enough to melt the gloomiest outlook. Suddenly, leaving a clean, inclusive and peaceful world for them has even more importance in my life.
