Just appreciating so much that my kids have two living great grandparents who they will know and remember. What a great link to the past it has been during our year of studying modern history as well to be able to say, your Banny was just a toddler when the Great Depression began or your Banny got married during World War II. How amazing it is to have that living, grounded link to the past and that multi-generational love. It is a good bit of a drive to see my grandmother so we don’t get to go often, but worth every moment when we do.
Sorry for the blog slowness. We have been traveling and enjoying summer fireworks and family and swimming and so forth, as well as keeping up school the best we can (so we can take off in the fall). I’ll have more to post later this week.
