A Few Days More with the G'kids

 Monday was free day at the Denver Museum of Nature and Science.  Ellen stayed home in her apartment to get "caught up on life" as we took the "life" with us.  We enjoyed a few hours in this great museum.

 So much life!
David (1st grader) normally takes the school bus, however, GrandDad, Ellen and David rode their bikes to David's school.

Glenn and Ellen rode bikes with David to his school.  What fun!
Emily and Lucy trailed behind.
Success! The bike riders made it to David's school and back!

Elizabeth Dedication

Glenn and I attended 5 month old Elizabeth's baby dedication on Sunday, August 27.

Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.

Keeping Emily and Lucy a Few Days in Dallas


We had a little "picnic" at the International Terminal at DFW so the Great grandparents could meet their newest little Elizabeth Kate Rosenberger, 4 1/2 months old.


We kept the 2 oldest girls, Emily 4 1/2 and Lucy nearly 3 for a few days, so Ellen could rest up from her long journey.

It was fun to walk to the park and let the girls play.  Yes, I still like to roll up their hair with those pink sponge curlers.


We called Don and Janie and they met us for lunch at Chick-Fil-A 
or as Lucy calls it, "Chic-A-Lay".
While Glenn was helping Grandma Vi pack for her move to Canada, I took the girls to the Cedar Hill Town Center where there is a small splash park.  Fun, cheap entertainment.
Thirsty!
The girls enjoyed meeting Gary and Julie along with Bob!
I'm so thankful that I got to spend a few extra days with Emily and Lucy.

Grandkids Travel to Guatemala


Ellen and Luke were leading a work team in Nicaragua during the month of August.

Glenn flew over to Nicaragua on Thursday, and returned on Friday with the 3 oldest grandkids - David - 6, Emily - 4 1/2 and Lucy - nearly 3.

  • 3 grand-kids
  • 4 countries (Nicaragua, El Salvador, Costa Rica and Guatemala)
  • 3 airplane rides
  • 6 long hours of travel
  • and 1 worn out GrandDad.

We enjoyed 10 days with the David, Emily and Lucy, followed by 2 days with their parents and 5 month old Elizabeth, when they flew through Guatemala to pick them up.




GrandDad taught David how to ride a bike.

 


A tuk-tuk ride in Panajachel, Guatemala.  Fun Fun Fun



Swimming!
A great visit at the zoo!















 It was great to have my house echo the sweet sounds of little ones.

We explored new Playlands at Burger King, McDonalds, Rincon Suiza, Eskala and Oakland Malls.  We went swimming, spent 1 night in Panajachel and David even learned how to ride a bike.  We made home-made cookies, played in the pop-up tent/castle.  The kids enjoyed coloring and eating their meals on a "kid-size" table.

I just loved playing with them.  Although our life was extremely busy during our time with David, Emily and Lucy, we were creative in making their time at Grammie's house a great time.  Please come again. Thank you Ellen and Luke for trusting your 3 oldest kids with us for 10 days.
