Conner; you are so so so cute!
Last night, my last night in Southern CA, I Babysat Conner and Madi for Rob and Carla. Living in AZ, I don't get this opportunity often and I could almost "pretend" I lived close and this was no big deal.. I also found myself over there with NO camera... I ended up using my cell phone. It was a magical night. Conner, usually not one to want a lot of time with Gran, was my little buddy. I took Makayla with me and Madi and Makayla and Conner all spent some time in the pool. Rob and Carla's backyard seems especially designed for Children. A beautiful pool occupies the right side of the yard, with "Conner's own little pool" (the spa). A magical Weeping Willow, that offers comforting shade in summer's heat, covers the left side of the yard. A thick carpet of grass covers this side as well. Children's toys dot the yard beyond a large patio, perfect for large family gatherings.
Sitting with my feet in the water, listening to Conner's laughter and Madi and Makayla playing was, a step into Madi's magical land where, she might be taken away by Sharks or Pirates. "Let's pretend" starts most of Madi's sentences when playing. It was GREAT.
I brought Lyndsey, Makayla , Izabella & Sophie home with me today and I'm looking forward to a week with four little girls running or laying around. Shrieks of laughter, dotted with cries of outrage reach me back here in my office. As long as my door will close occasionally this week, I'll be fine.
Thanks for taking the time to read my blog today.
