"Parting Is Such Sweet Sorrow"

Friday evening

Weather: sunny with occasional downpours

Mood: quiet and so missing Rebecca and Our Grace

Poppy: reading the local newspaper

Maddy: quiet, a bit tired, waiting to play, feed, or do another fun thing with Grace!

When we came home from school and work today our home felt very different. It is so quiet and a bit lonely. We are missing the excitement of taking care of Grace. Now it is just the two of us. That of course, is a good thing. But, it is very difficult to have our granddaughter so far away. The very good thing is that the Leger family will be together and happy.....just the way life should be! We cherished our time with Grace. We feel that we really know her so well now. She is an amazing little girl! We are definitely on our next path in life---grandparents. We love it and are still in a magic state of mind that we will have another baby at Christmas time. Thank you for having us take care of Grace, Bob and Rebecca. We had a wonderful time and LOVE Grace to the moon and back!

It's surprising how quickly time flies, especially when you want it to stand still. Thank God for memories, cameras, and this blog!
We empathize with you, Mary Ann and Walter.

Got Gracie, Jack & Eve?
