SUMMING UP THE WEEK
This evening the house is empty and quiet again after a wonderful nine nights of having “the grands” here. “Grandchildren” no longer seems very applicable as three of them are taller than I am and they are all quite grown up. But they are definitely still grand!
I asked the boys to post a brief sentence describing their reaction to Camp Grandmama 2021. Their responses seem to reflect their personalities. Ezra—“This week was like a ray of sunshine!” Sam—“I had an awesome time watching In the Heights!” Eli—“It felt great just to get out and explore places!” I said, “It’s been like a breath of fresh air!” And it was. Especially now that we understand better the significance of breath.
Patrick, Sam, Eli, Ezra and I went to the late service at church, where several people chatted with them about our week’s activities. At lunch, Sam asked if I talked about them to people at church. Of course I do!
We had a late lunch before they headed back to Mississippi—with one more new taste treat. Since they had enjoyed the Publix cheesecake so much, I told them about their signature key lime pie. It seemed like a fitting finale to the 2021 Nashville week. They posed in anticipation of tasting it—and the Publix pie got rave reviews.
After an afternoon nap, I went by to take some leftovers to Charlotte—including the last piece of the key lime pie. She was feeling happy about last night’s Act Like a GRRRL show—and promises to come over for a visit soon. What a breath of fresh air this past week was!
