living and learning.

Standard

 

 

love seeing my granddaughters

riding while filled with a gentle spirit and mutual trust

love all the other grandies coming out

to see what they have been working on

love that they each have different things they love to do

karate, basketball, writing, swimming, cooking, reading, fantasy games,

swimming, horseback riding, drawing, helping people, flying, exploring,

floating, small business building, playing, celebrating

yet they all have the same tender spot for animals 

while living life and learning.

“from horses we may learn not only about the horse itself

but also about animals in general,

indeed about ourselves and about life as a whole.”

-george gaylord simpson

it’s about harnessing imagination, empowerment, and creativity.”

“the six pack’- my grandies all kind of sitting still in one place at one time

on national grandparents day

i am reminded of this afternoon

5 years ago in the park

 you always were

from the youngest age

each your very own person

 i’m so happy to be ‘peaches’ to every one of you.

“when a child is born, so are grandmothers.”

very little.

Standard

after a fun afternoon 

and wonderful evening

spent visiting and playing

grandies are tired and tucked in

when suddenly the tears come

missing mom and dad

and after

a story, Kleenex, hugs, a visit from the cat, and a goodnight call to mom

everyone settles in for the night

including bunny

 does it get any better than that?

“very little is needed to make a happy life.”

a shoutout to all of my highly-spirited grandies

the six-pack

one of the rare photos

from a few years back

of all sitting still in one place at one time

happy grandparents day to all

with much love from peaches

thanks for reminding me what’s important each and every day.

“children make your life important.”

flying, fans, and forts.

Standard

on a 

 quick stop

to say hi

to the grandies and friends

 I was lucky enough to enjoy

their indoor flying and blow-up forts created with fans.

life is good at the end of summer. 

“the end-of-summer winds make people restless.”

-sebastian faulks

ups and downs.

Standard

 

you know that feeling

when you fall down

on the trampoline

and keep trying to get up

but everyone keeps jumping

and you keep bouncing

and then all of you

start belly-laughing

and keep belly-laughing

and cannot stop?

 

“life has its ups and downs, but you can only look forward.”

-frank lowy

building a giant sleep nest

no one is at all tired yet

the perfect time to bake brownies

and eat them as a late night snack

with some ice cream on top

their parents will never know.

“if we’re not meant to have midnight snacks, why is there a light in the fridge?”
