We had a fun string of Groves family visits this month! We are grateful they are all willing to drive long distances to join in our chaos for a few days, and love the relationships our kids have with all of them.
Uncle Alden & Aunt Taylor
They came to Emily's last Morning Sing, and her class sang a sweet goodbye song to Emily's teacher, Mrs. Grennan, who was a long-term sub.
Alden had the best little confused look Uncle Alden responded to his standard "what's your name?" with: "my name is.... Alden!"
reading Grandpa Groves' old comic books from the 60's!
Granny also gets bonus points because she did Emily's lipgloss making craft with the girls... we'd given her for her birthday and I'd been dreading it. ;)
Auntie Eowyn & Uncle Ben
Showing them the Quiet Garden
I think he's ready for fatherhood...
Daytrip to Derry for brunch with most of the gang, and to meet 2nd-cousin Renee
fun to see Alasdair as the 'old' dad - took the crying baby and had her asleep in his arms within minutes. :)
