We had an unexpected treat on Father's Day as the two oldest grandchildren and their mom, Shannon, came for a visit from RI. It's been about 5 months as the last face-to-face get together was during the Christmas holidays.
In recent weeks, both grands have finished school for the summer. Elizabeth (Ellie) completed 5th grade and there was a certificate celebration. She starts classes at a new school in the fall. Grandson Bobby completed freshman year and will be a starting 10th grade in September.
There were some photos after lunch, before the family headed home. As most folks know, time always seems to pass way too fast during a family visit. An afternoon is never long enough to catch up between months and grandkids growing as well. We hope to see these family members next month. Both Grenville and Ellie celebrate birthdays in mid-July.
An update: Blogger seems to be playing well in recent days and the Update Failed message has not been displaying as before. Also, photo uploads are not taking as long as they had been. Hopefully, this trend will continue. Also, I'm making sure to check the spam folder on a regular basis in addition to deleting those comments that are obvious spam.
