Tomorrow will be a sad day. Granny is going home. Oh, how we will miss her! Today on the way home from school, Zach and Tyler were expressing how much they wish she could stay. "Just one more week?" asked Zach. Tyler countered with, "No, a month would be better!" They went back and forth for a while until in their minds Granny had a permanent home on the living room couch.
While I wholeheartedly agree with their assessment that life without Granny will be rather dismal, I am mostly just grateful for the ten days she has been here. She has provided invaluable service and support during a very happy time, but also a time when we all needed some scaffolding. Sending her off with a mere "thank you!" doesn't seem like enough, but it's all we've got.
We took a few sweet pictures in the yard this afternoon. Gavin was grumpy and didn't want to participate, but eventually Granny convinced him to pat Kate's head. Remembering that will always make me giggle when I see this picture.
But these two are just tender.
Thanks, Granny! We will miss you.
