Can You Feel It In the Air?!



Fall...it's out there just around the corner! While we struggle through the final dog days of summer, take heart in the fact that Fall is on the horizon. Cooler days and nights will find their way to us once again. The air will fill with the sounds of schoolyards full of children, football fields full of players, the local college once again alive with students. The mums will blossom with their fall colors, the leaves will turn brilliant before falling in piles on the yards. All that is Fall will happen once again.

So, little ones, find a way to stay cool for the next few weeks, and dream of Fall....it WILL come once again. ;)

And So They Grow....

Time marches on and little ones grow up before your eyes. My grandson is now two and a half, and has finally graduated to a "big boy" bed. That means that when he comes to visit Gammie and Gampy, he won't be sleepin' in the crib anymore. So, we gave the crib to our next door neighbors who are expecting a grandchild this month. It felt right to give them the crib and changing table, but it made my heart just a little sad.

My sweet little guy is growing up...talking all the time...even asking his folks to call us or Skype with us now, which is truly wonderful! But I must admit, I do miss my cuddly little guy just a tich. I know that it won't be all that long before Gammie hugs aren't all that welcome. So for now, I'm gonna keep huggin' him all I can, and resign myself to the fact that he's gonna keep growin' up, whether I like it or not.

Give the growing ones in your life love, hugs, and plenty of room to grow, little ones. And get the "big boy" bed ready...they'll need it before you know it!
