A lot has been going on the first 2 weeks of Summer.
I got to sing "Before the Parade passes By" from Hello Dolly too. I"m really looking forward to this show and I have loved the rehearsals so far.
The littles have been busy. Alfie lives by a splash pad that is just THE GREATEST. He shared some of his enthusiasm and water with Andrew and Sophia. When they start playing you have to DRAG or BRIBE them away.
I had my first ever Paint day with the grandkids. I felt like I was channeling my mother. Mom always had these periodically with her grandkids. We used our creativity and lots of paint and some spilled water to make amazing things happen. I look forward to more of these.
Wayne flew in for one over night stay this week to Fresno, so he could hold Tayla and take these two out for dinner and fun. Good thing our free flight benefits have kicked in, thanks to Truman.
ANd speaking of Truman...he is doing actual flights now. He flew to Chicago and back on Fathers day and did all of the Flight Attendee things that he has been learning. He has 12 days left then we fly out to Atlanta for his graduation. He will be stationed in Minneapolis for 6 months, but is hoping to make it less than 6 weeks. As soon as he gets there he's applying for an NYC transfer.
We had our traditional Father's Day BBQ at the Calls. This is our first one without Marcie and Dad. It was tangible that they weren't in attendance. We all powered through. Last year, Father's Day was the beginning of the end for Marcie. Cancer and Chemo were kicking her butt and she just went down hill from there. I miss my angel Father and I worry I'm going to forget so much about him...Mom and Marcie....and I don't want to. I have Marcie's beautiful face as the pic on my phone screen. That's how I want to remember her. Memories are funny. I feel like I'm the keeper now of so many...and I need to write and share, or they will be lost forever.
