Grandpa Russ

Grandpa Russ came out for a visit last week!  He usually likes to come during the summer, but our summer was a little hectic, so he came out in early “fall” (although still technically summer…) and enjoyed the hot weather with us. 😉 We always enjoy his visit – we spend a lot of time outside and usually enjoy ice cream a couple times, too!  He also got to see what daily life is like around here, so he joined us at PE + (our first class of the school year) and listened in on some of our homeschooling around the house.


We went to the reservoir twice while he was with us.  It was lots of fun to use the kayaks he had given us last summer with him.  Hopefully he could get a sense of how much we all enjoy using them!!  One of the times we had Ace, Zach and Caleb join us which added to the fun!

Day 1:


Day 2:





Sadly, I pinched a nerve in my back and was in excruciating pain when he first arrived and for the first bit after that.  So, I didn’t participate in the kayaking, but I was able to walk at that point, so I just walked and then finished a book.


Look at how nicely Micah decorated the floor on the night I couldn’t move off the floor:


Thanks for coming out for a visit, Grandpa Russ!  We loved having you!!
