We visited the grandkids and their parents in Maryland last weekend. It was only a bit over two months since we last saw Leo (age 10) and Grady (almost 8), but they change fast. Here’s the report.
Friday night: A football game at the private school where Jeremy is CFO.
Saturday morning: Grammy and Gramps split to attend simultaneous grandchildren’s soccer games. Noted that both kids are taller than their teammates and that Leo’s ten year old foot is bigger than his grandmother’s.
Saturday afternoon: Road trip to Alexandria, VA. Walked the waterfront and King Street. Visited the art studios at The Torpedo Factory.
Sunday morning: The inevitable—grandson walks grandmother through the installation of a new operating system for her smartphone. Not so inevitable—grandson understood “spurious correlation.”
Three generations discuss whether it’s OK to do the crossword puzzle at a Starbucks using the shared newspaper provided. No agreement.
Sunday afternoon: Six boys, ages 4 to 42 play football on the front lawn, followed by a cookout with neighbors.
Monday Morning: Back home.
Summary: Grandkids grow too fast, know too much, live too far away.
