When Living by my grandparents when I was a kid I remember all the times I would ride my bike to their house and help them do things or have a snack! We would sit at the kitchen table and talk or go to the garden to pick veggies. Grandad had the best watermelons. There was always something to do at their house.
When I was in jr high I remember missing the bus and I would call grandmother to come get us but we couldn’t tell my parents because they told us to be ready on time. Grandmother was always willing to take my sisters and I to school. It was awesome having them close! Miss you grandmother. Rest in Heaven. 💕
