They are Precious in his Sight.....

Boys will be boys  :)

My son has his children  for the summer. Colton in the front on the right,Vivian in the back on the left.
Every time they come,they have changed so much. Makes me realize how much we are missing of their lives.
I am so thankful to spend time with them when they are here. I know of other grandmothers whom live far away from their grandchildren and its hard for them as well,loving them from a distance,but I have always had my grands under foot, until these two were separated from us.  As with all things ,it gets a bit easier over time,but the goodbyes are always so hard :(  The other two children in these photos are my new step grandchildren, Dakota,and Tristan. They are little sweethearts,and we are all so happy they are now apart of our family! Children are truly a gift from God...all children!

Children are joy and innocence! Living is just more fun with them!

My mom never got to live near my kids, (and she died in a car accident when my firstborn was 2), but we will reunite someday in heaven, so time will never really be lost!

Hi Shelley,
Children are a heritage of the Lord. So nice you have some time with your grandchildren this summer. I have six sweet grandchildren and they do not live nearby. I sure do miss them, but we have been able to see all six this summer. Have a great day!

My grandchildren are two hours away. I'd like to see them more often. They grow so quickly. I received some drawings from my grandson that I stuck to our refrigerator. Of course I think they are amazing.
Your grandchildren are beautiful.
