Grandchildren ~ the delight of old age!

Just got back from some time with my favorite big and little people!

I spent some time at the Zion Library before I left.  I was well stocked with books, CDs and educational videos.  (That sign language video for babies was way over my head!  However I did learn the sign for hippo since James was rarely without his!!)

We made some cards and used foam alphabet glitter stickers.  That was fun.  I'm not sure that you could have added any other sticker to Alaina's card, it was packed.  "grin"

Alaina got her first Thumbelina Braids.  So cute!

One day it was so warm the kiddos headed out to play.  Of course that included water puddles, mud and unmelted snow.  Oh such fun.  At one point Gretchen looked out and discovered that James had removed his boots and was walking around in his nice white socks!

This grandma's heart was renewed!  

"Grandchildren are the crowning glory and ultimate delight of old age,
    and parents are the pride of their children."  
        Proverbs 17:6  (The Voice)

Hey there! I am so glad you blogged! The kids are getting so big, now! Happy you got to come down and spend some time with them. Praying for all of them and you. Hold onto God's grace.

Thanks for the encouragement Tete.
So nice to hear from you! "smile"

We all are clinging to the Lord especially Kyle and Gretchen. The Lord has been such a strength to them. Don't know how we could go through things without a daily relationship with Him, as well as a whole history of seeing His hand moving in our lives.

This verse has been taped to my computer monitor for more than a year and I have been "meditating" on it.

"For the word of the Lord holds true, and everything He does is worthy of our trust."
Psalm 33:4 taken from the New Living Translation

Hugs to you, JS
