Let the past sleep, but let it sleep in the sweet embrace of Christ, and let us go on into the invincible future with Him. (Oswalt Chambers)

Home With Fond Memories

What a joy to see Granddaughter Sydney transitioning from toddlerhood into "kid". But how did it happen so quick? Seems like just a few weeks ago she was a cute little baby. Now she's three and a half.

Here are some of the things we did - or she did and I watched - while I was visiting in Idaho.

She's good with the ball.

She can throw, hit, kick her soccer ball, and dribble her Mom's basketball.

What better way to spend a hot afternoon?

Every evening before bed we watched Berenstain Bears and Kipper the Dog.

For those not in the know, this is a picture of Kipper the Dog with Arnold the baby Pig. Kipper speaks with an English accent while having unscary adventures to entertain preschoolers. Grandmas like them as well.

We also read many books. So many that I can't begin to guess how many.

Wednesday Daddy/Son John took us to the park in Post Falls. It was a beautiful day and a nice park. Sydney showed off her climbing skills while Grandma came to grips with the fact that I'm ten years older than I was with Granddaughter Kimmy and not as limber as I used to be.
