My mum and I went to visit my grandson.
My daughter and son-in-law have just moved into a new place.
All of the grandchildren call my mum Reetsy
and Verne (her only great-grandchild) is no exception.
He asked her to come down and play block with him.
She is 84 and had a hip replacement last year
so she asked him if he would help her back up.
He said, "No, I won't."
He won't be 2 till the middle of October
but in the end he did offer her what help he could.
He and I played in the yard with a little yellow dump truck
a bunch of sticks and a broken shell.
Last night was curriculum night at the family care center where I work.
In past years it's been a pretty low turn out
but this year we did things a little differently and the turn out was much better.
I teach toddlers and don't always get a chance to really connect
with the parents so it was nice to be able to talk to them all
and go over what we do in class each day.
I know that they won't remember me
but my goal is to inspire a sense of wonder, caring, and curiosity in them.
Tomorrow is the Autumnal equinox.
The weather has been cooling off!
Autumn is my favorite season and I'm loving it!
Only a few more week till Verne turns 2!
I can't believe how fast he's growing.
