From the Grandkids
Emma: "Is that the only color they had?"
Hannah: "Does dad know about this?"
We had the pleasure of a granddaughter's visit for four nights. We went to the beach, attacked each other in bumper boats, played tennis, visited a church fair, shopped for school clothes, went to the movies, and got a pedicure. Hannah called her parents to report in.
Her mom: "What have you been doing?"
Hannah: "Oh, nothing much."
Charley (aka 'Papa') on the phone to Olivia:
"How are the twins (her brothers) doing with potty training?"
Olivia: "Not too well. Will runs and makes it, but Ryan still poops in his pants."
Papa to Will on the phone: "What did you like best about your first day at (pre)school?"
Emma after her birthday:
"Thank you for the check. I can't buy anything because Dad's putting it in the bank. That's OK, grandma. The school clothes you got were nice."
