Friends

When I was planning for my two weeks with my granddaughter, I made the decision to leave my sewing machine at home. Even though she has expressed an interest in sewing, and we have done some projects on the machine together, I just didn’t want to lug one more thing. As it is, I packed eight bags. Most of the bags were filled with craft and art stuff. I found out that my son and his wife had a bet to see who could guess how many bags I was bringing!
We have been pretty busy having fun without the sewing machine. Thanks to my friend, Nancy, we had a swim afternoon with our grandchildren. My granddaughter enjoys being with Nancy’s grandson because she says he makes her laugh. We have gotten together before, and they do seem to enjoy each other’s company.
Today, my Meemaw friend drove up with her granddaughter, who is the same age as my granddaughter. This was the first time they met, and they are already making plans to meet again. We visited the Meadow Center in San Marcos, Texas. Both girls are nature nerds like their grandmothers. The four of us were excited to see turtles, egrets, humming birds, snakes, tadpoles, frogs, butterflies, and hawks. These are just a few of the animals we saw on our hike. The glass bottom boat ride was delightful. We got to see the Edwards Aquifer springs in action.
Our morning ended at the In and Out Burger, with a plan to meet again soon.
I appreciate my friends helping me out during these two weeks with my granddaughter. It feels so good to see our grandchildren becoming friends also.
