Today’s is Matthew (Sparky’s) three week old birthday. Fall is definitely in the air.
Here are a few recent images of him as well as images of Kate and my Mom playing softball outside yesterday. They’ve really bonded on this particular trip and it’s been wonderful to see.
Mom has been here for almost a full month on this trip and she visited earlier in the year for three weeks. When I was little, we got to see each of our only living grandmothers for one week a year, so Kate is already well up on how many visits I had as a child. Which is so fantastic. That bond between grandparent and grandchild is truly special and I’m so envious of our friends and relatives here who have their grans and grandads so close.
But at least we can see them over longer stretches such as this and via Skype.
