How did this happen??? I still remember the day at the lake when Jamie told us we were going to be grandparents...she took a pregnancy test and (even though she had planned to keep it a secret for a while), came right out to the deck and told us! What an exciting day for us all, a baby on the way! And now, today, that baby, "A" started 3rd grade! Holy Cow!!
And, the news of his sister, Miss "K", was equally exciting. We even got to be with them the day that the ultrasound tech told us all that she was a "SHE!" And now, today, that little "SHE" started Kindergarten!
These two (along with our other four grandchildren) are just growing up way too fast!
Time spent with grandchildren is ALWAYS a good time. My Mom always told me that being a grandparent was the "BEST," and now I know exactly what she was talking about. I think that is why it is so hard to see them growing up so quickly...I just hope that the day never comes when it isn't "cool" to spend time with Nana and Papa! :0)

Stephanie Ackerman, my very favorite "doodler!"I have always admired her doodles and wished that I was talented enough to do it. Well...I doubt I will achieve her level of "doodling" but she says we can all do it, so I'm going to give it a try!! Check back for updates...if I accomplish something that is "blog worthy" I will share it with you here!! :0)

The strength and wisdom that time
And experience have given them.
Grandchildren bless their Grandparents
With a youthful vitality and innocence
That help them stay young at heart forever.
Together they create a chain of love
Linking the past with the future.
The chain may lengthen,
But it will never part...

Follow me, little brother and I'll show you the way,
I'll hold your hand in mine and stand beside you every day.
There are many things for you to learn
and I'd like to be your guide,
Don't be afraid, little brother for I am always at your side.
I can teach you how to ride a bike
and how to catch and throw,
So if you listen carefully I'll show you what I know.
I know some things seem scary
and you may be afraid to try,
But don't worry, little brother on me you can rely.
I'll always be there to protect you
and catch you when you fall,
For when we stick together
we can make it through it all.
As the years go by and we are both becoming men,
I know we'll remain not only brothers
but also best of friends.
