There's nothing like visiting the grandchildren to remind yourself of what is important and endearing. After the seriousness of the news from the last few days, I got lost in the realms of children, namely Lucas and Lilly.
Saturday began with Lucas's 5/6 year old basketball game. What a wonderful game--no score was kept!!! The importance of the game is dribbling, running down the court, guarding the person with same color wrist band, and maybe making a basket!
After the game, there was the gynmastics gym. Lilly and Lucas ran to the zip-line to glide across the gym floor and then jump off over and over. There were forward somersaults, a swinging rope, a plastic ball pool, jungle gym bars, balance beams, wall climbing , two trampolines, and much more. What a workout for all!
Sunday morning, I felt this gentle pawing. Gosh, their dog Wrigley really has gotten gentle! It wasn't Wrigley but Lilly gently trying to wake me up. Lucas was at the door and said, "Gram, it's time to play!" Why can't every morning be started like this when you're gently awakened with the idea of just play is on the agenda?
The day ended with a walk around the block, looking for rocks in the sunshine!
Thank heaven for little boys and girls!
