Below are a few of the things my grandchildren are doing this summer.
First are Caroline and Elizabeth. Their Girl Scout troop went to a nearby assisted living home and planted both flowers and herbs for the residents. The girls had as much fun doing it, as the residents did watching them.
Jesse fished and learned to ride his bicycle. Gotta love his helmet! He is all boy!
Ahhh, to be a child again. Some days I wish it was that way, and in other ways, I don't want to go through the 'growing up' stage. I love it that most of my grands enjoy being outside and aren't stuck in front of the TV or constantly texting. Don't get me wrong, they do use their cell phones, if they have them, but they also like being in the yard.

I usually make the right decision.'
'I've learned that even when I have pains,
I don't have to be one.'
'I've learned that every day you should reach out and touch someone.
People love a warm hug, or just a friendly pat on the back...'
GO, ENJOY THE DAY!
