Sunday Fun Day With Lyra

Our 6YO granddaughter Lyra has been here since Friday and is going home tomorrow. She is SO much fun! We did a lot of stuff yesterday, were out and about, but today I couldn’t do much of anything (high pain/low mobility) so we hung out here and did stuff. We played our ukuleles – she …

Cops & Donuts

Our precocious wonderfully sweet and stylish 6YO granddaughter, Lyra, is spending a few days with us this weekend. Today we did some running around and then one of our stops was at the famous Cops & Donuts in Clare, MI as we passed through. She really enjoyed her chocolate frosted cruller and hot chocolate.

A Tuesday In The Life

Today we went to our daughter’s house, and this little guy first visited me in the car, then moved to a nearby branch. Pete was nearby so I handed him my phone to get a picture. Pete LOVES dragonflies and damselflies! This is a particularly handsome one, don’t you think so? Our 6YO granddaughter thought …

Wednesday, on our way back from Pete’s appointment, we stopped by our daughter’s and picked up our 11YO grandson for a visit. Leelan lived with us for a while when he was very young, and also stayed with us while his mom was working 2 jobs and going to school at night. (I’m so proud …
