Blue Sky Farm

My blogging posts and photos are part of me . I think of this as a scrapbook of my life. The names have not been changed.. they are real people who have crossed my path along my journey. Some I know intimately, my family and friends. If their names are mentioned it's a sure sign they are special to me and I love them dearly...come along see for yourself, perhaps you know some of them too..

Packed & ready to hit the skyways this time...


Yes, I am  packed and ready to go to Denver on Friday. I will be spending 10 days with my little grandson 
Charlie.   He's 2 1/2 now and Its been too long since I have held him on my lap, read him stories and played at the park with him. I will be babysitting him while his  Daddy works and his Mommy goes to a retreat. 
I have not seen him since last summer. I know he has grown and will probably do the shy kid bit for a few minutes.  Hopefully this will be my opportunity to have him get to know me again and then when he comes to my house  in a few  weeks  he will remember me.. If you remember Charlie was born on my birthday and I was there when he was born. He is my last grandchild and 5th Grandson.
Are you a grandma? Do you get to see your grandkids often?  I wish I saw all 6 of mine  more often.. I cannot image not having some time with them.  They grow up so fast and  get on with their own lives much too quickly. I want to keep close ties to them as I do my children.. It is hard to do sometimes but having Family is one of my  cherished treasures.

Oh have so much fun. Charlie looks like my grandson Quinn. I have 6 grandchildren and 4 live in Colorado.....where do yours live. I live in Ohio....my other two live in the same town. I miss them so much. I just returned a couple weeks ago. It amazes me that they do remember me. I go out as often as I can. You are so right....they grow up way too quick and we need to be with them now. Have fun.

Have a good time. No I don't have any grand kids. Mr son is still not married. Hopefully, one day.

Have a great visit with your grandson, Cheryl! I'm going to Ct. this summer to visit 2 grandchildren. Can't wait to see them! 2 of my grandchildren live about 5 hr. drive away and 2 live across the country. Have missed them so much.
Love your blog and seeing your pictures of travels.
