This picture! It’s a good thing we moved here because if we were still living in Texas, and I was still begging to move closer to them and I saw this picture this morning, I would probably have said “We’re moving! Today! Start packing! I’m leaving NOW.”
They grow up way too fast. Seeing this picture, a million memories went through my head – the first time I saw her when she was about two weeks old, when she was 3 years old and wouldn’t let Chad leave the house without her because she was afraid he was going fishing and not taking her; to her first day of kindergarten . . and here she is now. Even though it almost brings tears thinking how quickly she is growing up, it makes me smile knowing how much she is enjoying life, her enthusiasm and excitement for each new day.
It’s a different world for kids . . all of us really . . but the joy of watching a child grow and mature helps soothe some of the burdens of being an adult in today’s world.
So very glad to have this girl for our granddaughter; so very glad to have Chad and Nicole as her parents and as our son and daughter-in-law and so very, very, very glad that Vince agreed to move closer to them.
The first game is coming up and, 100 degrees or not . . we will be there!
