Our first grandchild, Austin, turned ten years old last week.
Daughter, Aimee, Austin and me.
Austin wearing "Sailor Ducks"....at Disney of course!
Where do those precious years go? I feel the years are falling away too quickly.
I work everyday to keep those memories close to my heart and wish time
would just slow a tiny bit. Long enough to catch my breath.
Austin is such a sweet child with a tender heart. As most kids today, he's growing out of those
childhood years much earlier than necessary....a sign of the times.
And yes, I will worry that his heart will be broken.
The center bottom photo of the collage was the day his parents
took him to live for four years in Hanau, Germany.
We were so fortunate to be able to visit him so many
times while they were living there. Everything has a silver lining....right.
That was when Delta had to furlough pilots after 9/11 and
we had more time than money. Luckily we traveled on
Delta's dime for all those trips.
What was more funny was that Austin at age 2 thought
Nana and Papa lived at the Frankfurt airport!
