John and I drove away this morning just as the sun was rising. (Did you know it is still dark at 6 AM??!!)It was beautiful, all pink and amber rays bouncing off the clouds. Definitely worth getting up early today. We had a date with my grandsons. Tim had to work for a few hours this morning, Karen had to coach HS girls volleyball and the boys had football games. We really enjoyed spending the morning with them. Who doesn't melt at the happy, fresh faces greeting us. John and I got great entertainment watching a gaggle of 6 year olds playing flag football. The parents and coaches were all so gentle, encouraging and kind to all the boys. We met back at their home for a quick lunch and then they were off to the afternoon activities. John and I had a good time and we left knowing we had helped the kids out today, but we were glad to go back to our quiet home together.
