I love the little boys that belong to these feet. They are my grandsons.
They came to visit us the night before their grandfather’s surgery.
When things settle down, and they are able to come spend a week with us this summer, these are the things on my list for us to do.
*plant pinto beans in their own tiny garden
*go to the flea market and see the goats and the chickens- on that trip we we’ll take Poor Po (my husband) and Papa (my father)
*buy a watermelon at the flea market and eat it with our hands out on the patio at dusk
*play in the sprinkler during all of my watering
*play with finger paints out on the patio in the early evening
*swim in a plastic swimming pool out on the patio-maybe even count that as their bath (sssh…don’t tell their mother-my oldest daughter)
*use another plastic swimming pool filled with sand as their barn- when my brother was little he always told my mother he was going to go outside and work in his barn (a dirt pile under the eave of the house)
*go to the zoo
*eat lots of pancakes
*go the park
*make homemade ice cream
*go get raspas (snow cones)
*create a macaroni art project (remember Vacation Bible School?)
*go to the children’s section of the public library
*buy a big sack of school clothes
Sigh… I can’t wait.
