You can look back at my past 7/19 posts.
Dad, we are knee deep in swimming this year. We are unexpectedly headed to league champs this year. At first Celia chose camp over it and I was more then OK with that. Adding an extra week of practice and attending a 2 day swim meet (morning and possibly evening) is not quite exciting to me. Her friend and her coaches changed her mind and she can still go to 3 days of camp. She will simply practice for 1 day and attend camp for 3 days. I guess sort of the best of both worlds. She will have fun hanging out with her friends. I love that they are part of the team and feel supported (that was a priority for you) but it is a long haul in the summer.
Life is good. All your Grandkids are together this week.
Audrey is my comedian. I think of you when she does things like the above.
She would have made my you laugh all the time and I have a feeling it would have been a mutual relationship.
The older one would just amaze you. She is bright, loves to read, and is just basically turning into a young lady. Her personality is forming and you can see some passions starting to form. Dad, you would have loved watching them grow.
