Grandchildren


A wise person once said, "Grandchildren are your reward for not killing your kids."  And a wonderful reward they are.  You have paid your dues for 25 or 30 years, and now receive all the fun and enjoyment while skipping the discipline and hard labor.  I agree with every other grandparent I know, that my grandchildren are the best behaved/ cutest/ cleverest/ sweetest/ nicest/ handsomest/ smartest/ and every other positive "est" you can mention.

No two of our six grandchildren were born in the same state--we cover Utah, Washington, Arizona, Oregon, Vermont and Idaho.  We are lucky to have three living close by.  The others we see when we can, which works out to several times a year.  I'm pleased that all the moms post weekly pictures and videos on their blogs, so that we can keep up with these special little people.

And here they are!

  1. Wow, I never considered that they're all from different states. Weird.

  2. PS: This is my post for Wednesday, Nov. 4, even though the date says Nov. 3. I programmed it to come up on the 4th but it disobeyed.
