I was needed at my daughter's
opportunity for some Finn and grandma time
Most of the time it rained and was chilly
...opportunity for rainboots and an umbrella
 

But Grandma.....I like them both
and I want my superhero umbrella
 


This is the sweetest boy on earth
and he makes his Grandma
verklempt
as he looks out the window
at his tree....Mr.Ebbersberger
....it's a long story...but that is the tree's name
and we hug it everytime we are together
...seems his parents aren't into the spirit of this relationship
hmph
 


It's still raining Grandma!
can we walk to school
argh


 


Finally his mama decides that we will drive
and he decides his red sneakers are the best choice
 


After a long day at preschool, lunch and a little playing
he crashes....
and I just watch him
a miracle
as all children are
He took a bath too this afternoon
used his papa's sage and sandlewood soap
so he can smell like his Papa
 


Today we made a birdhouse out of a milk carton
 

and hung the wool bird nesting stuff ball

played a little
find me Grandma


bird watched

 

and before we came inside for lunch

I took a picture of him next to Mr. Ebersberger
.....a tree I once believed was part of the Indian reservation
now gone


Finally a goodbye at the door
see you next week

  2. My time to be a grandma will come, but not yet. This post has been a most lovely reminder of how it might be. What a blessing your little Finn is, Suz. (Of course I LOVE his rain poncho!) xo

  4. Your grandson, Finn, what a handsome and inquisitive treasure. You have been blessed, along with Mr. Ebersberger, of course. Isn't it wonderful to have that special contact, special memories you are instilling. He will follow in your footsteps too.

  7. What an adorable grandson! He must bring you a lot of joy. I love the batman outfit. When our boys were little my wife made them a cape and they used to run up and down, first shouting "Up, up, and away!", and then "Down, down, I'm coming back!" They also had Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle costumes, if you can remember those. Now they are in their twenties and tower over me. Sigh.
