On Saturday we zoned out for most of the day, as the trip to Millinocket was a long and tiring one. Then on Saturday night we babysat two of my grandsons:
Carter, who will turn 5 in December
And Austin, who is 9 and a half.
I agreed to babysit reluctantly, because we were really exhausted from the previous day, but those two were a joy! They were as good as gold for us. They played games on their Wii that they'd brought with them, and then we watched the movie Ghostbusters and ate popcorn. They were so well-behaved and never argued with each other even once. They took turns playing the games, and each surrendered the controls voluntarily when his turn was up.
They did not at all act like the little devils they appear to be in the above photo!
Then on Sunday, we wanted to attend our 7 year old granddaughter Allie's soccer game. We drove to the game, but could not park anywhere close to the field where her game was taking place, so instead we went to her house after the game to congratulate her on her team's win.
She understood that we missed the game because her Papa Joe's knees don't permit him to walk long distances and seemed content that we paid her a visit at home. And guess what? Allie likes to write stories; she was working on one in between watching a movie on the tv. (A future blogger in the making?)
Her big brother Nick who's 10 and a half was mowing the lawn for his Dad.
It wasn't a small job...the lawn is huge. This is part of the back lawn, and there's more on the front side of the house. He takes his job very seriously.
We enjoyed spending time with family, especially the grandkids! I was really tired after all that and went to bed by 10:00 last night!
Did you have a good weekend?
