A Grand Update

As they say.. time flies! Claire is in school, Noah is almost 3 (!!) and Layelah is already 5 months! I must be getting old! Indeed, I will become a senior citizen in another week. How can that be?! I'm trying to look on the bright side.. I am still vertical.. and healthy (no meds at all- yay!) and now I'll be getting a regular cheque each month! AND I'll qualify for seniors discount!! Gotta love it! And the BEST part of getting older....??  Grandchildren!!

So, it's high time for a little update on "the grands."
Claire, age 5, is now in kindergarten, or "Primary" as they call it in Nova Scotia. She is in French Immersion and doing well with picking up a second language. Here she is on the first morning of school.. so excited!

I love this photo of her, taken last fall obviously. She is tall for her age, takes after Daddy I guess!

She takes swimming lessons each week through the winter, and plays soccer in the summer.  Of course, winter also means lots of time to play in the snow...

What a little monkey, playing on the bed...

Noah has passed 2 1/2 and is heading towards 3. He's growing like a bad weed! He is developing quite a personality, and keeps us laughing with his antics.

He is such a good big brother to his little sister. Right from the start, he has been gentle with her, and shows her his love. I'm sure they will be good buddies as they grow up.

Now that she is showing interest in things, he likes to show her a book or bring her a toy, or make her laugh. Sooo precious! Such wonderful times!

He just melts my heart, every time I get to spend time with him. This grandparent gig is THE BEST!!

And speaking of little Miss Layelah... look how SHE has grown! She has just passed the five month marker...

She is such a happy little girl! Wakes up smiling, goes to bed smiling, and smiles most of the time in between!

Look at that sparkle in her eye!

Yep, another little bundle of joy to love!
I am smitten once again....

Feeling Very Blessed,
Grammie Linda

Your children are your rainbows. Your grandchildren are your pot of gold.

Those grandies are certainly shooting up like weeds, for sure! You know, I reckon every day you wake up on the right side of the grass is a good day.

Simply wonderful pictures. I remember when Noah was born. Man that time flew by. Your littlest one is sure a happy baby. My newest is across the country and it's always a special day when we get a great pic or video which is almost daily.

Embrace this Golden Age. It really is great.
xx, Carol
