My beautiful 10 and 12 year old granddaughters from Texas arrived yesterday. What a good job my DD and her DH have done in raising these girls. They are beautiful inside and out. They arrived hot and tired from the drive, but brought their suitcases in and unpacked right away. After a healthy supper they thanked me and told me how good the meal was. We sat at the table and began working out a schedule of what we would do the 2 days we are staying here at the house. They offered their opinions, listened to our comments and we easily decided on the activities we would do. After that we read for an hour. They are in AP programs and have summer reading assignments for school. Then we went for a walk. The 12 year old loves to run. (My DD runs daily) The 10 year old and I walked the dog and the 12 year old ran. We ended up walking / running a total of 2 miles so yesterday I walked a total of 4 miles - a first for me. Today, we're going to the mall, a pottery making shop and the library. I wish raising my kids were this easy and fun! lol Being a gramma is great!
