August 14: Today’s happiness is grandparents! Book Boy has been at my folks’ house since Wednesday night (after the movie), and he’ll be there until Sunday. He’s very close to my parents, and truly enjoys these extended visits (4-5 times a year usually, sometimes with Little Sister). And I know my parents adore him enjoy the visits just as much as he does. Little Sister will get her turn for a solo visit after school starts.
I grew up living just a few blocks from my dad’s parents, and we were extremely close to them – I saw them a couple of times most weeks, spent a weekend or two at camp with them in the summers, had periodic overnights at their house, etc. While my parents don’t live close enough for BB to have quite that kind of relationship (especially when they’re in Florida during “winter”), I’m extremely grateful that he and LS have such a great relationship with my parents.
