I've been gone almost since school was out, and am now celebrating being home! I haven't posted since the wonderful All-Write Conference. I was happy to be home for a few days, to relax a little before the next adventure. A week ago Thursday, my grandson flew in from Texas, and on Friday, he, my daughter and two daughters, and I took off for Missouri, to visit with my brother and family. What a wonderful time, a list of celebrations day after day. Among all the wonderful things, the very best is visiting with family, talking over old times, catching up on new times, and this time my grandson (13 next month) got to stay up with the grown-ups, listen and add to the conversation. Do you remember when you were old enough to do that?
I've posted some of these on Facebook, so forgive me if you've seen them already, but am really happy about all the small things we loved doing. Each part is a special memory for us.
|It looks this way, across eastern Colorado, then all the way|
through Kansas, & finally, rolling hills begin
as we near Kansas City, Missouri. After that,
two more hours. Long days going and returning!
|Goofiness surrounds us. The kids are hamming it up here!|
|We visited an old-time school. They're listening|
to the teacher (me).
|Morning on the deck.|

|We visited the University of Missouri campus, where my grandson|
hopes to go. My mother, my brother & sister-in-law, my son & his wife,
and I all went there. We hung out at the student union-much fun.
|One hot, hot day, sprinkle time in the afternoon.|
|One loved snuggling up in a big chair with a cozy blanket.|
|On the way home, the girls had fun pretending the cart was|
a stage, the mirror was the audience. They sang and sang.
Like the song says, "Little things mean a lot."
