Tiki and I had a great moment on Saturday. I could tell that he was feeling a little lefted out of the sadness. For starters, he hardly knows Gran'ma. He never lived in Branson and he never got to know the Gran'ma that the other three knew. So I think he felt a little left out when the tears were flowing. But he and I had a quick time of hugging and reassuring him that it was perfectly okay that he wasn't as sad. It really was only about thirty seconds but it felt very special to me.
We've also had a fantastic time with my parents. My dad goes all out for my kids! He bought go carts and legit model airplanes and they went fishing in a boat. . . . There are four wheelers and golf carts and an indoor trampoline. My kids do not lack for activities when they are with my parents. Being here is always a fun and refreshing get away for them. I love it!
I love being in my parents' home. I love being in my Gran'ma's home. I love being in the woods all around this place. I have so many happy memories here and I just love being here. It's good to be happy here even though this trip is a little bit sad. I'm blessed!
