Too Quiet

Vacation is over and the grand kids have gone home.  It’s too quiet in this house.  It was great having the young ones around for a while.  We did a lot of fun things and are already thinking about what we’ll do next time, but it was sad to have to send them home.  It was a very lonely drive back from the airport yesterday.

We did finish the wind-spinner project we were working on (plus a bunch of other projects). Here’s a picture of the finished spinners:

The completed wind-spinners.

That’s it for this week.  Next week I’ll have recovered enough to write a bit more and share some of the plans I have for the next six months of blogging.

Till next week,

    Scattered families have become an unfortunate part of our society. I wonder what happened.

    I hope you had a great time with them.

      We had a great time.

      It’s sad they had to move but at least with today’s long distance transport we still get to see them once in awhile. 100 years ago we’d be luck to get regular letters from the family.

    Had two grand children in Austin Texas—-one with special needs that could not travel. Flight home was always so sad—so I know how you guys feel. Now they are 85 miles away instead of 1285—-a prayer answered. Keep up the good work.

      We’re on the west coast and the kids are on the east so we only get to really see them once or twice a year. Too far away but we do what we can.

    They’re both unique, but my favorite is on the right.
