Visit the Kids

I have just come back from a visit with our adult kids and all 5 grandsons.  The grandkids range in age from 14 months to 8 years.

It was my best Christmas gift.  They tend to wear us out & I now realize that child rearing is best done in your 20's & 30's,  but their energy level is amazing.  The older 3 with the two dads went sledding & then still had the energy to run around my daughter's house all evening.

The younger ones were cute & huggable, all were fun to play with.

My kids are very good parents; it is good that they had my wife's example.  I think I worked too much when they were growing up (in the Navy for most of them); I'm afraid I missed an awful lot.

CHILDHOOD (n) The period of human life intermediate between the idiocy of infancy and the folly of youth -- two removes from the sin of manhood and three from the remorse of age (Devil's Dictionary)
