Parting Is Such Sweet Sorrow. . .

A month of babies and it was so hard to say goodbye today. . I asked to keep Lily till we see them on the 4th of July, but Ella was not happy with that thought and told me "NO Grandma". So Steven and I picked up and put away and dusted and cleaned and then then it was so quite and sad that we met Sue and Steve for soda and political talk at the Bell. Then we went and got Taylor for a movie and fun at the house.

Air Art

I was heading out for a quick lunch moment, and saw this wonderful display in the sky! A jet (hopefully one of ours messing around, and not one of theirs scoping us out!) cutting cookies in the beautiful blue! It came from the east, made a number of circles, and then headed west. . Hawaii maybe! It was really cool to watch. . .and like I said, hopefully it was someone leaving a message for someone here on the ground. . . a goodbye as you go.
