One of the joys of being home between traveling ministry events is being able to spend time with our families. We are very fortunate – both of our daughters and their families live in the Grand Junction area, so we get lots of grandkid time. My wife loves to not only babysit the grandkids, but she also gets her hand into being able to homeschool them on a regular basis. Actually, she is so attached to her grandkids that it seems to be getting harder and harder to get her excited about going out on the road with me to teach Creation!
Tonight as we baby sit with our two granddaughters, I sat down and watched the movie Dumbo with the 4 year old. What fun! I was more entertained by her running commentary than the movie itself. She had seen the movie last week with her cousins, so she was up to speed on everything that was happening or about to happen. She made sure that her Papa (me) understood everything that was going on. Watching her laugh, smile, and giggle, bob her head, dance to the music, and listen to her rattle on certainly made the movie a lot more exciting. I know that I am prejudiced as a grandpa, but she really is “stinkin” cute. As I write this, she is entertaining her grandmother … they are putting a puzzle together and stamping, taking time out to also play with the 2 month old.
Ah, the life of grandparents! Thanks Lord for our family and the joy they bring us!
