I too have been thinking about my grandfather...

I too have been thinking about my grandfather these past weeks. Most of my memories of him are when I spent time with him in Normalville when I was a kid. Those are some of my favorite times, the smell of the wood paneling, the funny little phone booth between two rooms, catching frogs in the pond, and making mint tea with my grandmother. There was one Christmas when they pulled out all the stops, Jenny and I excitedly hearing "Santa Claus" coming in and talking in the living room, a blanket of snow around the house.

I also remember my trip down the Mississippi, grandpa at the helm. The dark waters would slide by beneath us. The hustle and bustle of the world seemed far away on the distant shore.

March already

March already. This week seems to have flashed by in a blur. Jamie and I have our date night tonight, though I'm not sure exactly what we'll do. A walk to Metropol to pick up some bread sounds about the extent of my romantic thoughts for the day.

I'm mostly recovered from my illness. Sam was complaining about a slight headache, but otherwise seems good. He's doing quite well with reading and writing these days, which is a treat to watch. Emma is her normal princess self, with tea parties and dress-up the norm for playtime.

Jamie's going to be away at the beach this weekend, so I'm trying to think of things I can do with the kids for fun. I suspect we'll go swimming, visit the library, and watch our fair share of movies.
