Miss You Granddaughter "R"

Grand R came for a week and ended up spending 2 weeks. She was such a big help to me. R took over the care of the bunnies and I never had to do anything but the frozen water bottles the whole time R was here. We went swimming, went shopping, baked a cake ( not from scratch but R  was surprised you could mix a cake without plugging it in), clean the cages, raked the pens, rode bikes, milked the goat, delivered triplet goats, gave bottles to one baby goat, watched movies, read books, played scrabble, researched things on computer, and just had amazing conversations. Thank you for giving up part of your summer to visit grandma grand R. I sure do miss you!

I remember those old egg-beaters. I learned wood working from my father and his old manual tools. I might have one or two of them around here somewhere. Nice to have a post to read. hehe

Kids can be such a help around the farm. I'm sure she misses you as much as you do her.
Hope you have a blessed week

So happy you had such a good time, it is wonderful to spend time with our grand children, most of mine are all grown up and have children of their own, keep in touch...

Maybe she'll come back again for another couple of weeks. I hope so for your sake!!
I used to have a hand beater like that but I've no idea what became of it!!

I'm sure that in years to come she will think of this as one of her favorite vacations. I love the picture of her with the tiny baby goat on her lap and taking a bottle. I'm glad you were able to spend quality time together.

Those memories will last both of your a lifetime.
