These days have not been full genealogy days because the grandgirls came on Thursday at 11 a.m. along with the new grandhound, Spencer. Tami and James are in La Jolla, where Tami has a conference.
Both days have been mainly reading and blogging when I can find a spare 20-30 minutes. We've stayed home and played in the house, in the back yard, and taken walks with Spencer. Spencer is a young basset hound puppy, and is very active. He wants to grab anything that he can get his mouth around and shake it to death, or shreds. Our challenge has been to keep things, or take therm, away from him. We shut the doors to all of the bedrooms and the genea-cave!
The girls have been great, although they don't go to sleep as well as they used to. Lauren has impressed us with her vocabulary and third grade reading left (she's in first grade), and really shares/plays well with Audrey, who is 3. They are really good, sweet, happy, smart little girls - we love them so much!
So you can see - not much genealogy work, but lots of family history! They go home on Sunday.
