Grandkids and growing older

WOW! Time flys. I can't believe our 1st grandchild turn 13 during our vacation with him. It seems like yesterday that he was born. And now he has 3 little brothers that all look up to him.

As we get older our time seems to go by so quickly. We just don't have enough time to do the things we want to do. Remember being 13. We couldn't wait to be 16 to get our licence. That was an exciting time.

Our next step would be to turn 18. That number made us adults and we could drink. The big debate of upping the age to 21 was still going on. Of course now, 21 is the big number.

But us older (only the number) folks remember things our grandchildren will never see or remember. Oh the good old days. (now that even sounds old).

I wouldn't change a thing. (Maybe couple of things). But, to be young and have time to enjoy your grand kids is a gift for both. They can come, visit, drive you crazy, and then they go home. Then a couple weeks later you miss them all over again.

This is a test!!!

This is a test. I believe that my blog posts are not going to Facebook as they should. So I am testing to see how long it is taking. Please bear with me.
