From the time my kids were babies, they were right there to lend a hand. Whether it was taking Matt for a stroller ride on a sunny spring day or inviting Emily to come and play dress up...since they were only 3 blocks away from our little house, they were an everyday presence in our lives.
Not only did they love spending time with my kids, they both remembered how rare “alone time” is for Mom & Dad. I know this is why, every Friday without fail, they took both kids so Shelby & I could have “date night.” We would have dinner together and enjoy uninterrupted conversation...talking and planning what was next for our family.
I can’t imagine raising my children without such active and loving grandparents...I’m thankful for every day, every golden moment they so generously gave us.
