Blue Zone Weekend
All three kids were home this weekend along with both grandkids. That put us in a Blue Zone.
One year old Gwen was showing off that she can walk by herself – especially when she had an audience to cheer her on. Three weeks ago she could manage only a few steps at a time. Now she can walk across a room. Amazing difference! Until you realize that she took 5% of her lifetime to learn that new trick.
Almost 4 year old RJ is a perpetual motion machine. Saturday he went out with his uncles (both starting sweepers in high school) and came home with a complete soccer outfit for his classes starting Monday. He tore around the yard with them kicking the ball ahead of him. Under duress he took off the cletes and shin guards for bed. More running at the family picnic today with his cousins. He is sleeping in the car heading back to MN in the entire outfit. Good thing his car seat is in the back and downwind.
Engagement party last evening, for son Greg and his fiance Erika, gave them the opportunity to see our friends who knew him in HS. He is certainly not a kid any more. In fact he and his siblings are all in their thirties. When did I get old enough to have kids that old?
Family is a Blue Zone.
