What a gift it is to have grandchildren! We don’t deserve them, but oh-such-joy they give us when we stop to see them.
The finale of my trip to New York was visiting my daughter, Maggie, her great husband Doug, and their three children. And what a carnival of coming and going that was.
It tires me just thinking of their whirlwind week-end schedule:
Friday – 10:00 Meet Maggie at Oculus in downtown Manhattan for tour of new passenger train center in lower Manhattan
Maggie’s office is now in a new building opposite Oculus.
Saturday – 8:00 Sydney and Ewan lacrosse practice
9:00 – Tae Kwan Do practice for all three grandchildren, Kelsey 9, twins Sydney & Ewan 6.
