Welcoming the Wee One

Often things in life do not work out quite as we had imagined. With four children we had expected that we would have many Grandchildren to share our later years with. As it has turned out we were already in our sixties when our daughter produced the first one. She now has another, but her three brothers (two of them much older) still haven't figured it out. To make things worse she lives a distance away (it is about a three hour drive) so we don't see her family often.

Each summer we have been trying to get Payton, her 5 year old son, down to visit with us for as long as she will permit. So last Saturday Donna drove to Toledo, where our Son-in-law's parents live, and picked up the wee one. She wants him back by Sunday.

If you visit this blog often you might remember the "March Hare Syndrome" back in May. We have been Runnning!! Zoo, library kids stuff, church activities, fishing, letterboxing, etc. This morning we will be off to the Cuyahoga County Fair. What fun, but I am getting worn out.
