The block between my parents house and our rental is starting to show the signs of a footpath as we walk back and forth between Gram and Gramps almost daily. There is also a path through the fields in the back which lead to GREAT Grandma and GREAT Grandpa's house. What a blessing for our children to know so many of their Grandparents.
On Sundays we will continue to try to make the 1 1/2 hour drive to the other side of the family for Sunday afternoon rest/play and Sunday evening dinner at least once a month. During the week Anellah has been attending Kindergarten in the mornings and loves it. I always knew that once she had an interest and confidence in reading she would just TAKE OFF and that is exactly what is happening. She is starting to sound out words and write them because "homework time" is such a treat and she is excited to "work" along with Capper in the afternoons. Anellah and Capper continue to spend plenty of time outside. They love the independence of being able to explore in a safe environment, feed animals, swing on rope swings, and splash in puddles. One morning it was raining and Capper exclaimed, "Look! It's raining...new puddles!!!!!"
