Here are our 6 grandchildren in 2005 (ages 3 to 10)

This week our “boy scout” (above 2nd from the left) got his boating license at camp.

His sister was little apprehensive

But he did just fine

I just noticed that the youngest is now wearing the life jacket that the oldest wore in 2005 picture.

    Loved your photos. We too live on a lake and had 4 of 8 grandchildren here and 4 of their cousins. May be last time for so many. One was graduated from Ohio State and will go on to Georgia Tech in Prosthetics and Orthotics. Another was graduated from Dominica in Chicago and goes on to a nunnery in New York to do charity work for a year. Several are out in the work world in CA, IL, etc. We have a wall of them from year to year. Those memories you have in your blog are so precious. emoticon

  These are the good times and it's great that you're sharing and taking pics to have them to show the kids as they age as well as reminisce. They will always be memories engraved in your heart. Time flies as we get older however, ask a child who can't wait to grow up! I would tell my daughter, enjoy being a child as long as you can as you'll be adult for the rest of your life. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    I love your pictures of your family. The life jacket just goes to show, that if you keep something around long enough, multiple people get to benefit from that item!!! I had to laugh out loud, when you blogged that you just noticed it. I had to go back and check myself, which made me laugh that much more. emoticon

Please keep the pictures coming, as I enjoy them so!!!

Be blessed,

  First of all, your grandkids are just gorgeous/handsome!

Yes where does the time go.....DH and I will be married 23 years on July 28th! Seems like yesterday.

I just wanted to say what a great example you have set for your grandkids and that it is wonderful you are so involved in your life. What you have taught them will carry on to the next generation and so on and so forth

All your cottage pics make me want to get boating on the water asap.
