When our children travel...

Many of my blog buddies have family who live, or travel, far away. My son, in Vancouver, is wonderful about doing a Hangout in Google+ with our new granddaughter, baby Cluny. She is a petite little girl, growing well.

My daughter, Caitlin and hubby JL, traveled to Europe and we did Facetime with them and our granddaughters. The time difference of 6 hours was tricky. We had the girls here a week. We created an iCloud of photos of the girls' antics, and it really meant a lot to all of us.

When I would take kids shopping in the malls, older women would say, "Enjoy them while they're young, dear!' Yet, grandkids grow up even more quickly. I can't believe how the time has flown. Those in long-term care speak of this situation. They get older, and sports events, lessons, other interests take precedence, as they should. I will look back on this short week with great joy. Freedom just be have fun.
I've framed my embroidery and
given it to our girls!
Izzy did a reprise of Foam Girls, the movie we created last summer. They played games on their iPods. We made crazy photos on our iPad. Daisy was a big fan. Annabelle helped with plasticene play. Looking at fungus, watching DVDs, checking the trailcam videos, playing in the tree house and on the swings. Painting, breakfast on the back deck, or dress-ups! Canoeing and blowing bubbles!
We studied a video (Wild Kratts), which explained the differences between alligators and crocodiles. Then there was the segment on monarchs, after which we went out and looked for gramma's milkweed plants!

Here is a sampling of photos for hubby.

Time does fly by much too quickly with our children and grandchildren. I'm so grateful for technology because it keeps us connected.
