If you were to question anyone who sat anywhere near me when our daughters were

playing volleyball, running track, playing tennis, showing lambs, competing in debate tournaments

or one act play, let’s just say I may have been a little intense-

when I wasn’t hiding my eyes or sticking my fingers in my ears.

Nothing, however, prepared me for this.

Every feeling I have as a grandmother grows exponentially,

as in what-a sized, amped up, increased to the nth degree.

Add trying to take an action shot through a small opening in a chain link fence at a baseball

tournament, praying something will be in focus, and I am fanatically exhausted.

It is wonderful.

OH YES, I can relate! Being a Grandmother is the BEST! Love that picture:) Have a blessed day dear Laura, HUGS!

Intense indeed. Judging from the glorious face you managed to capture thru that fence, I'd say the leaf doesn't fall from the tree.

Being a grandparent is amazing. They sure brighten my day.

Oh I totally understand 'the praying something will be in focus' part.
Is it just me? ...but it seems like my grand kids move at a much faster rate of speed than my children did!
enjoy the Grands while visiting your daughter. HAPPY THANKSGIVING, Pat

I know I know...they told me it would happen..I didn't believe it...but it is wonderfully true!

Love you and have a great Thanksgiving.
