As I've mentioned here time & again, we live on the family homestead right next to my hubby's grandfather & his parents. This has allowed our three boys to really get to know their grandparents & great-grandparents (my hubby's grandmother passed away last year). It's really something special in this day in age we think & one of the main reasons we chose to move back home.
Every single day that we are home, my oldest son (who is now 10) walks down to get the mail with his great-grandfather. No matter the weather, at 12:30 sharp each day, they head down. I say down since that is the direction our driveway goes. :-) Our drive is about a 1/4 mile drive so this is about a 1/2 mile each day. B talks about what is happening in his life & great-grandpa listens. They even hold hands often. They used to take Shadow & Keeysha with them (our older dogs that have both passed away). Now they take Scout - my in-laws new puppy. On occasion N is allowed to go but this is really a special daily tradition for just B & great-grandpa that I try to allow for.
This is what memories are made of & I'm so glad we are able to live in a way to promote the making of them.
