Jim & I just got back from our visit to the States, and I need a vacation from my vacation.  Jim was gone for about 2 1/2 weeks and I was gone 1 1/2.  Most of the time was spent watching the grandbabies, but we also had a quick side trip down to Boise to see a boy I used to work with graduate from high school.  It was a great visit, but a loooong drive.

So, the grand babies…we have 3 – ages 3, 2, and 1.  The one-yr-old is totally adorable.  The two-yr-old is mostly adorable.   The three-yr-old is the strong-willed one and is also fun to be around unless you have to tell her no, or ask her to do something she doesn’t want to do.  If one of these situations occurs, her tantrums could win academy awards.  I truly can’t decide which is more challenging – parenting 37 teenage boys or babysitting 3 very active grandbabies ages 3 and under!  I will miss the grandbabies, but I am really glad to be back with our boys.
