Summers end....

Enjoy yourself.
These are the good old days
you're going to miss in the years ahead.

These were the last days of summer....truck rides, hauling tree branches, mini golfing, baseball, playing with Gus, donut mornings and zoo afternoons. I am going to miss these slow summer days so much....they grow up way too fast. Have a good school year, kids! Grandma and Grandpa love you!

Summer Days...

While we try to teach our children all about life, our children teach us what life is all about.
Angela Schwindt
There's nothing like a summer day filled with grandchildren to remind you of what life is all about...giggles and golfing and pizza and lazer quest....topped with Gatorade and a phone call to tell us our little band of travelers will soon be joined by the sweetest little girl! I'll not soon forget the sounds of five little voices chanting "Grandma...Grandma...Grandma" as I whacked that crazy golf ball into the hole to win them a free game of golf.....the sight of five little faces with traces of pizza sauce and pop on the corners of their mouths....the groan of five little souls as I asked them to pose for just one more picture....and the peels of laughter as they raced each other up and down the gym at Grandpa's work! Thanks, kids....for reminding Grandma..and Grandpa...of what matters most!

Advice From Gus....

The best way to get a puppy is to beg for a baby brother
and they'll settle for a puppy every time.
Winston Pendelton
Dear kids...
play hard, do well in school, come visit...
and bring treats!
Love, Gus
