Papa’s World – ELLA – playing college soccer.

ELLA MYERS

Our granddaughter – Ella – became the second sister to play college soccer –

Her sister Maddy is a senior wing for the Unversity of Lynchburg in Va.

Ella is now a Sophomore and started and played every game as a Freshman – the first player that the coach said has done this.

And that string has progressed through seven more games this year.

Number 10 Ella Myers for Randolph College in Lynchburg, Va.

He only takes her out for a short rest and most times he doesn’t take her out.

She is really good at middle defense and passing the ball.

Her position is forward midfield.

Ella – taking a corner lick – this year she has taken all of them when she is in the game.

Crossing the mid-field line – Ella playing her position
on a forward mid-fielder.

She has become a good – steady player for the program.

Soccer and college are now her life and she is living it to the plus.

PAPA’S WORLD

Papa’s World – Arts – Crafts and Grandkids -oh my!

Cassidy – our little artist.

We had lists of things to see and do while they were here for twelve days!

The downtime was also on those lists and arts and crafts for each of them.

Keeping three kids on the go – with rest times.

Bode and the crafts he made – along with his stuffed shark.

While he did the crafts by himself – we had to read a lot of the instructions to him so he would understand them. He will be in second grade in the fall.

He did very well and made the contraption to pick up items from the floor.

Taylor with her crafts – the picture frames they all picked out the colors.

She would much more like to ride a horse but she was game and made the things you see here

even stitching the leather notepad holder.

She is our reader – books and books – always reading.

This is Cassidy’s element – she loves her arts and crafts!

She is so talented – making things – she made the cards – painted the switch plate covers –

painted rocks and copied the American flag that President Bush painted – exactly like he did.

Cassidy’s drawing with a pencil.

Cassidy’s other little girl drawing.

The list was long – but downtime was important and it showed in the arts and crafts.

PAPA’S WORLD

Papa’s World – Grandkids list – busy times!

No need for this with these three – they are always busy!

When they are home – it is outside they go – playing with friends – riding bikes!

So – before they came to visit for twelve days – we asked them to think about what they wanted to do!

And they came up with a list for each one to do and day by day we crossed those items off –

somedays more than one!

Beach days were our sort of down days – and usually in afternoons – here we are in a tidal pool on OIB – the water was warm and they loved it!
THE LIST!!!!!

I still can not believe we did all of this – each day we added and crossed off – one by one.

And yes – by the end we were exhausted – but it was a good feeling and now –

They are gone and I wish they were back.

The grandkids – Taylor – Cassidy and Bode – “PAPA – WHAT ARE WE DOING NEXT”?
PAPA’S WORLD – livinglifedoingitmyway.blog

Papa’s World – Spending time with the little ones!

These three are like this at home – they are outside all day long!
Taylor – Bode, and Cassidy – are our youngest grandchildren.

You should see the LIST – things that they wanted to do and wrote down!

We have one more to do – tomorrow – MINI GOLF!

Bode has wanted to play mini-golf on this one course in North Myrtle Beach

since we have been down here for two years!

The one that has the Airplane and Helicoper!

Bode Cassidy Taylor
It has been a busy TEN DAYS, to say the least! LOL

And the crafts they have done and completed – hours and hours of doing them!

Bode and Cassidy – once in the water they are still there hours later!

We have been going to the beach every other day, mostly in late afternoons or early evenings.

That way – they will not get sunburned and they are now so tanned!

The sun sets on another adventure day.

Having them here has been a joy – it will be twelve days total and their parents will pick them up.

Excitement – laughter – and some groans – but all in all – they have been very good.

Cassidy – Taylor and Bode

Last year it was one week – this year twelve days – and we have done a lot in those times!

“PAPA – MORMOR – WHAT ARE WE DOING NEXT”?

I am going to miss them when they leave but will see them in a couple weeks –

they are going with their parents for an additional week on the beach at Topsail, N.C.

Then home and for two weeks will practice with a professional crew from California

in the musical LION KING!

We are going home to watch them.

Papa’s World – Our granddaughters – ELLA and SARAH!

Maddy Sarah Ella

Today I write on the two younger granddaughters – having written about Maddy in a previous blog.

Ella – caring – always does what you ask with no questions.

Warm – friendly – my LITTLE TINY as I called her.

Sarah – outgoing – fashion – arts – glamor – Broadway – big cities.

My Whirlwind when she was little.

ELLA – today a picture of health – playing college soccer and starting as a Freshmen.

While she may be a little homesick – she is thriving at college.

Stable – understanding – polite – team – not an “I” in her vocabulary!

NUMBER 10 – this is ELLA!

She is who she is – kind – smart – always giving – understanding and an idol to Bode as she is to many little ones.

Sarah today a Freshmen in H.S.

Try as I might to keep them little once again – she has grown these last years –

soon to be 5′ 9″ and beyond like her grandmother Sherry – as is Ella.

With her mother Debby

” GO FORTH – THE WORLD IS YOURS” is what I think when I see Sarah.

Today – Sarah – Ella – Maddy

Papa’s World – oldest granddaughters – Maddy – Ella and Sarah.

All three have CHARACTER

It seems like only yesterday they were running around – laughing – excited – little – little girls.

Sitting on the top of the stairs – waiting for their parents to get up on Christmas mornings.

The youth soccer games – then the travel teams – and for Sarah – dance – acting – animated.

Today – they are 21 – 18 and 15 – all about to leap forward another year older.

Maddy is a senior to be in college and Ella is a Sophomore to be in college.

Sarah is a Sophomore to be in H.S.

Maddy at 5’6″ is now the shortest – Ella is 5’10 and Sarah is almost as tall.

They take after their grandma’s Swedish heritage – Sherry is 5’9″.

Both Maddy and Ella play soccer and start on their college teams – Maddy will be one of the captains.

Sarah is a free spirit – funny – outgoing – and will run track.

Sarah – Maddy – Ella

The Myers girls – our oldest granddaughters.

Our little granddaughters are gone –

replaced now by beautiful young ladies.

Maddy has a major in Environmental Science

Ella is going to be an elementary PHYS ED TEACHER.

PAPA’S WORLD

Papa’s World – show a little LOVE!

We went to Lynchburg Va. to watch our grand daughter play soccer.

Our oldest daughter – her husband and the three grand daughters

all were there – the next day we went for a walk along the river.

Mike Sarah ( youngest) Maddy ( oldest – college soccer) Ella ( senior – college soccer in the Fall)

We watched the game Friday night in the rain – Maddy scored a goal

And the next day – after her practice – went for a walk along the river.

Sarah ( 5’7″) Ella ( 5′ 8 1/2″) Maddy ( 5′ 6″) Sherry ( 5′ 9″)

The girls are tall – Sarah seems like she will be the tallest as she is only 14.

But – when we were home at our other daughters house-

Taylor who is only ten years old – is already 5′ 1/2″ tall!

I think she will be the tallest along with Bode.

Our walk lasted a couple hours

as we were going for a late lunch and a early dinner

Debby ( Mom) already shorter than her daughters.

We walked – a fun walk – a lot of laughter!

Maddy Sarah Ella

It was a fun afternoon – a break from the rain – warm enough when walking

to enjoy the time together.

LOVE!

Debby Mike Papa Sherry Sarah Maddy Ella

Thank you for reading Papa’s World!

While visiting us – our daughter and granddaughter went with us to Sunset Beach

to view its renowned sunset.

Here Ella, Sherry, and Debby stand gazing across the marsh to the West.

It seems everyone heads to this location –

as I dropped them off and had to drive a couple blocks to park.

But – it was worth the walk back in time to capture the mother and daughter doing a selfie!

Debby and Ella, just as the sun is setting over the marsh.
Three generations – Grandma – Mother and Daughter.

The trip was worth it and while no clouds for reflection – the marsh provides that quiet feeling!

They are twins – not identical – and born early – three-plus pounds each!

Today they are 11 years old – and Taylor has shot up – almost as tall as her mother.

Cassidy plays soccer as does Bode – Taylor rides horses!

Cassidy makes things – really great things by watching UTUBE!

Taylor reads tons of books and her favorite is Harry Potter – she is at the 11th. grade reading level.

Papa’s World – Memory of GIGI and family vacations.

GIGI – Sherry’s mother – Barb

Many times when her father was alive – we would go on vacation with them –

then when he passed away – we continued taking GIGI with us where ever we went.

The grandchildren all loved their GIGI – and today – the grandkids call Sherry – MORMOR – Swede for MOTHERS – MOTHER

You see GIGI ( Barb) was Swede through and through – her mother was born in Sweden.

In Mount Jewett where they lived – was an early Swedish settlement from immigrants.

The men in 1886 built a replicant of an eight-sided Swedish church – and the one in Sweden still stands as does the one called Mount Nebo in Mount Jewett – in NWPA!

Every year in that little town in NWPA – a Swedish festival is held.

Both Barb and Bill at one time were the king and queen of that festival.

GIGI – holding Taylor – Maddy holding Cassidy – Sarah and Ella

Memories of GIGI for the grandkids was she was always laughing – smiling – red cheeks –

Holding her hand as they walked or climbing up and sitting beside her.

Learning how to sing a song in Swedish and singing it to her.

Those are memories not lost – but retained in our minds.

GIGI is ever there watching over us.

Thanks for reading Papa’s World – where memories come alive and live on.

Papa’s World – when they were little Grandkids.

GOOD DAY EVERYONE!

It seems like only yesterday they came and stayed often overnight sleepovers!

Our six grandkids all lived close to us before we moved to OIB, N.C.

They had their own SPOTS that they would claim to spend the night.

Ella had a single bed adjoining our Master Bedroom.

Maddy had her own bedroom – a single bed.

Sarah – Taylor – Cassidy and Bode all had their spots on our master bedroom floor!

I miss those times – foam mattresses – blankets and lots of pillows.

Giggles during the night.

MADDY SARAH CASSIDY TAYLOR ELLA – before Bode

Today Maddy is a junior in college – Sarah a Freshman in H.S. and Ella a Freshman in college.

Taylor and Cassidy are in the 5th. grade – 11 years old!

And now we have Bode – the only boy.

Taylor Bode Cassidy

The sleepovers are gone – vacations are now here – bedrooms are gone – college soccer games are here.

Gone are the skateboard’s outside – bikes – easter egg hunts in the yard –

Today it is looking forward to visits here and visits back at their homes.

Times have changed – new beginnings are now here!

WHEN THEY WERE LITTLE – NOW THEY GO FORTH

Papa’s World – Why I write my blog – livinglifedoingitmyway.blog – the creation

PAPA – Tom

I have always been a history buff – ancient history – but also family history.

My sister and brother were fifteen and ten years older than me.

So when I came along I had missed the family fishing trips to Canada each year.

And my sister became the family photo taker and camera buff.

All the family history was passed down to my sister’s daughter and then suddenly she passed away.

Unknown to me – a friend of their family cleaned out everything and threw it away.

Everything was gone except the few pictures I had and my brother had.

I decided that what happened there would not happen for me and my family.

So – by being encouraged by my wife Sherry – we set up this blog – where all the family history and pictures can be in one place for all to see and read.

Sherry and Papa ( Tom)

She has encouraged me to write it down along with pictures for future generations to look back on.

Our family before Bode

I have two sons from a previous marriage – Troy and Shawn who still live back in NWPA.

Shawn runs an energy company contracting out to the state and large power companies.

Running state audits and working through state grants to insulate senior citizens’ homes from the harsh winters.

He covers the entire western part of Pa.

Troy – built homes from the ground up – anything you wanted he could do.

After years of doing this ( he was in high demand) Shawn talked him into coming to work for him –

His business has grown to almost seven days a week.

Troy runs the insulation and energy side while Shawn concentrates on the Audit side.

Troy is learning that side and taking tests and courses to also step in and help.

I am very proud of both these boys and trying to talk them into taking a break and coming down for a visit.

Shawn and Trisha ( our daughter-in-law)

Winterizing homes in Eastern USA for the elderly has become big business – conserving energy

on the power grid for major corporations in order to provide heat and electricity –

He has tapped into a business that for him is seven days a week.

He constantly is looking to hire people and train as auditors.

Troy started working for him a couple years ago.

If anyone is looking for a career out there – contact me – fitztdf@aol.com and I will put you in contact with him – he travels the whole western part of Pa. North to South.

Shawn ( young one ) and Troy – my sons back in NWPA!

For them I write – post pictures and give them memories that I still have in my head.

Ryan – our oldest grandson

Ryan lives in Tenn. and we have stayed in touch with him – he manages a hotel

and recently opened a bar – restaurant business with two other partners.

We attended his wedding a few years ago in Nashville, Tenn.

He has visited us once a few years ago – he served his country

and is like his father(Shawn) making his own way in the business world.

Dylan Shawns youngest son

He just spent four years in the service and is now out – living with his mother or in that area.

He reminds me so much of Shawn.

While we do not often get to see either one – both are in our memories and hearts.

Hoping they can come and stay with us in the future.

Bode – the youngest grandchild from Tammy – is the only boy with five granddaughters.

He is all boy – cars – trucks – bikes – and always without shoes and socks – even in winter! LOL

Bode’s parents and sisters and their puppy Marley.
Debby and Mike and their three daughters – Ella – Sarah and Maddy

This is my “WHY” for writing this blog – my memories put forth in words and pictures for all these grandkids and our children to read in the future.

Life in pictures in words – memories – past – present and future to come.

I want to thank my wife who is the driving force behind this blog.

SMILES – LAUGHTER – PEACE – HARMONY and POSITIVE THOUGHTS!

That is WHAT PAPA’S WORLD is all about.

ELLA ( tiny) and Maddy
ELLA ( tiny) now a Freshman at Randolph College

We called her the nickname from her father – she always had a soccer ball or basketball in her hands.

Today – she is the starting midfielder for the college – playing almost every minute of the games.

Tiny now is taller than Sherry who is 5′ 9″.

CASSIDY and Taylor
CASSIDY – the caring little mother to Bode.

Today she is the smaller of the twins – with the biggest heart – always protecting Bode when not arguing with him! LOL, They should have been the twins they are so much alike!

She is the one who counts the days down to when she can see us – who zoom calls every week.

A little fireball with the biggest heart of them all.

SARAH and Ella
SARAH – Bode – Cassidy – Taylor and Ella.

Today – Sarah is almost as tall as Ella who is 5’10” – the fashion girl who wants to go to NYC!

The twins adore her and whenever we get together – they are three peas in a pod.

She is only a Freshman in H.S. – already was a contender for prom queen.

She is her own self – funny – outgoing – and just might have been a very good soccer player like her sisters.

Cassidy BODE Taylor
Taylor BODE Cassidy

So much like Cassidy that they should have been the twins – yet – he is growing –

and someday I think will be taller than Taylor who he is built just like at seven years old.

Full of energy – always on the go – wear no socks or shoes most of the time.

Or a jacket or gloves!

Out of the six grandchildren – the only boy.

So tiny – but healthy – and that was the birthday of their mother that they were born on!

Not planned – but by the doctor’s orders.

Bode came along four years later – today they are 11 and 7 years old!

MADDY ( now 21) SARAH ( now 15) ELLA (now 18)

The first of the grandbabies – all girls – at Christmas time they would be the first to get up-

And would sit at the top of the stairs waiting – for their parents to awake.

Giggling – so excited as their stockings always hung from the rails at the bottom of the stairs.

MADDY ELLA SARAH

Today – MADDY is a Junior at the University of Lynchburg – in Va.

Excellent in a school with an above 3.80 GPA!

And as a Junior second-team all-conference.

They were invited to Division III NCAA playoffs where they lost a heartbreaker 3-2 in the final minute of play.

Today – Ella is a Freshman at Randolph College in Lynchburg Va.

Where she also started and played college soccer.

She started at midfield and played almost every minute of every game.

Sarah is now a freshman in High School – having been selected to represent her class for prom queen.

All three love their GRANDMA and tease her as she teases them!

The oldest when she was little – the memory of then!

She is playing soccer for the Unversity of Lynchburg – and has played since she was a Freshman.

As a Sophomore, she was third-team all-conference and as a Junior – second-team all-conference!

So proud of this young lady who pursued a college soccer career.

They went to Division III NCAA 64 team playoffs where they lost in the last 2 minutes 3 to 2!

MEMORIES of when she was young!

PAPA’S WORLD

Papa’s World – Heritage Reserve with the grand kids – hiking!

Bode – walking into the Heritage Reserve – Cherry Grove – S.C.

The little guy learned that not hiking is in the mountains like he thought!

Crossing streams or climbing rocks – that is all he had ever done on a hike

Showing him nature – the marsh – water – sand – scrub trees –

He learned that there is more to this Earth – hoping to bring him back

in warm weather as we were told you could see “GATORS” then!

Taylor walking the path through the trees!
Taylor Cassidy Tammy Sherry ( MorMor) making their way into the preserve!

They were excited – walking into the trees on the sand path –

looking for birds – snakes – spiders

hearing the sounds and the marsh views!

Taylor and MorMor – she is only 10 years old – already up above her MorMor shoulders who is 5′ 9″!
Bode – exploring and me reading to him what is here!

FAMILY – MORMOR – MEMORIES!

Papa’s World – memories from the past -part 4!

Family is very important to us – both near and far away.

Over the past 40years – YES – we have been together that long – many friends have come and gone.

But the family has been a constant joy in our lives!

Mike and Debby – Tammy and Marcus – Maddy – Ella – Sarah – Taylor – Cassidy – Bode was not born yet!

They moved to NVA after we moved there! My sons stayed in Pa. and we talk and see them.

Now – we are in N.C. by ourselves – close friends live 35 miles from us.

We are making new friends – new neighbors – and our old friends have been visiting us!

As well as family.

MEMORIES are heartfelt.

Today Maddy and Ella are in college – playing soccer – Sarah is an H.S. Freshmen – and Taylor and Cassidy are in the fifth grade – Bode is now seven!

Thank you for reading – MEMORIES of each and every one of them come to mind –

Pictures speak to me of memories.

Papa’s World – A shout-out HAPPY BIRTHDAY to our grandson Bode – who turned SEVEN!

Although they were 400 plus miles away – we were there in spirit!

We had celebrated his birthday when they paid a surprise visit for four days!

They surprised him in the morning when he came out of his bedroom!
Waiting for him when he came down the stairs!

He is such a handsome young man – and loves us – calling us MORMOR and PAPA!

At our home for the surprise visit.
Chilling out with Papa’s phone playing ROBOX!

Papa’s World

Papa’s World – the only grandson adores the three older granddaughters – Maddy-Ella -Sarah – being BODE!

Bode sitting on Maddy’s lap.

He has always adored Ella – but lately he has become close to Maddy – whenever he sees her – he sits with her.

She is the oldest and he is the youngest of the six grandchildren.

He seems to have taken soccer to heart and may be our next soccer player.

She – Ella – has always been there for him – no matter what everyone is doing – she finds time to spend with him.

He wears a sweatshirt to Ella’s soccer games with MYERS on the back – it was hers when she was his age!

A somber moment with the both of them – but in her lap he has been since he could walk!

He sits by himself and cheers for her when she is on the field – “ELLA – ELLA” !!!!

Lately he has become closer to Sarah – she is younger than the other two – but I notice him following here now that they are in college.
Sarah and Bode – I love this picture.

All three he adores – he wants to see them all the time and will ask if they are HOME from college.

It is neat to see him bonding with Sarah now – she has always been close to the twins.

The grandkids – Ella had soccer practice.

PAPA’S WORLD – livinglifedoingitmyway.blog

Papa’s World – The power to take your life in a new direction!

It was not easy to decide to sell our home – almost everything in it –

and move to another state – some 450 miles away!

It all started with the stock market slide – around the time the Pandemic hit!

Our retirement is in the 401 K and it took a big hit!

But – there is always a but!

The housing market was taking off!

From the last reduction in prices around 2006 –

and losing in that market –

We were now almost even – a rebound!

And it was going up!

Our oldest grand kids – Maddy Sarah Ella

With the three oldest grand kids

One in college – one in the fall in college and one who has a life of her own

And the three little ones – we would make it a point to return often –

after all – we were retired – and Sherry had her home based business –

that could go anywhere with phone and internet service

We would sell!

AND WE DID!

After 14 1/2 years – with the downturn behind us in the housing market

WE MADE A PROFIT and had all of our equity!

We followed our plan – sold our house and furniture –

for three months we went back and forth between our daughters houses!

We had our equity to either rent – or buy – we had choices!

And then by chance – I stumbled upon this – having no thought of moving to S.C. !

Our view today – we left end of September and went to North Myrtle Beach to Ocean Keyes!

Since that time – we have been home twice – holidays for three weeks – and now for a week!

The grand kids have been down – the little ones – and by the time you read this –

the older ones will have been here!

Our family – when we returned for a visit.

Our family when they came to visit!

We have started a new life – away but close enough to make it home in seven hours.

We are happy in our senior years – living life to the plus each day!

Thank you for reading Papa’s World

WHERE FRIENDS MEET THE FAMILY

A new life – walking the beach every day –

We have each other – we have family and we have friends.

It was not easy – but God works in ways I can not explain.

We have started a new life and a new house build!

It will be done around the early part of June!

We had no idea a year ago we would be doing this!

Papa’s World – swimming – grandkids at LAKE HOLIDAY Cross Junction Va. with Mike and Deb.

nSherry – Sarah – Papa – Cassidy – Taylor – Debby – Bode and Mike.

On our last day home – we packed the little ones into the car and drove the hour and ten minutes to Cross Junction

to Lake Holiday – where a gated community with guard house sits –

a 227 acre lake in the valley of the blue ridge mountains in the Shenadoah’s.

Mike and Debby have lived here for 16 years –

raising their three girls – in the country.

There are three beaches on this lake – the main one with the marina and club house –

beach three across from that

and this is called beach two –

has a camping ground – volleyball court – playground – boat docks and storage for canoes and kayaks.

A partial sand beach with pea gravel as the sand keeps washing into the lake.

So they put in a small retaining wall and backfilled with pea gravel.

It is shallow close to the edge but within 25 feet – is over your head.

The brown area in the water is the shallow part – the dark blue is the deep water.

There was no one there – the campground was empty –

the kids had it all to themselves – and later had a tube ride

from a friend of Mike and Debby who stopped by when they saw us at the docks for boats.

The little ones love it here and want to go and see their cousins –

Maddy – Ella and Sarah.

The first two are now in college and Sarah is first year in H.S.

Mike and Debby host family for overnight all the time –

a campfire pit in the back yard –

lights strung amongst the trees.

It is quiet here and the lake about one mile away.

Bode Taylor Cassidy

The shallow part as Taylor is standing –

but it drops off quickly and way over your head!

There is a dam here and one time before the lake – all valleys with streams running through them.

Sarah – Cassidy – Taylor and Bode just relaxing in the Sun –

the water – well I thought it to be cold –

but they said once you were in – you got use to it –

but as soon as they came out – they grabbed towels

and wrapped up in them and sat in the warm Sun!

Thank you for reading Papa’s World – WHERE FRIENDS MEET THE FAMILY – FAMILY MEETS OUR FRIENDS!

Papa’s World – trip to waterpark with granddaughters and grandson – Ida Lee waterpark – Leesburg Va.

Sherry with Bode – Taylor – Sarah and in front Cassidy – grandkids!

As promised for the twins birthday celebration – their cousin Sarah would stay overnight and we all went to

the waterpark the next day. Ida Lee Waterpark and since it was Labor day weekend –

hardly anyone was there!

This sits just outside Leesburg Va.

Bode was with them but had to use the restroom!

The only way for him to join up with them again was to get a tube and get in as they passed him on the lazy river.

Sarah Cassidy and Taylor

The water was a little cold but okay after they were in. The temps had cooled down to mid ’70’s!

All in all – we were there three or four hours!

The park itself is not that big and lots of lifeguards – making it easy for us to sit one place and watch them!

Since it was a holiday weekend – most people had gone out of town – it was not crowded at all!

They had a blast on the slides and pools and lazy river – a obstacle course and a place to snack.

Sarah about to go under the water fall! I would bring them back again and we had shade to sit in!

LAZY RIVER – IDA LEE WATERPARK , LEESBURG VA.

Papa’s World – Twins birthday – MARLEY puppy – and cousin Sarah comes to visit!

The twins turned eleven years old – Cassidy and Taylor birthday!

Yes – they are twins – and they had to be taken out early because Taylor was taking all the nourishment!

Today – Cassidy is normal for her age but Taylor is going to be real tall – like her MORMOR –

Swedish for MOTHERSMOTHER!

Sherry is 5′ 9″ and she will be taller than that.

Bode – who turns eight is also going to be tall and here is cousin Sarah – who at soon to be 15 – is gaining on Sherry!

We went back to NVA to watch the little ones and the puppy Marley – and Sarah came for overnight!

MARLEY at six months old – a puppy who likes to play keep away and run and run.

She is adorable and is a Goldendoodle – judging by her feet – she will be very large! She is so friendly and loving.

But – you must make sure to keep things out of reach as she tends to chew – thus she stood up and grabbed the hat of our son in law and that became history! LOL

And at night – after all day with MARLEY and the little ones – sleep was welcomed! LOL
A very proud grandmother – Sherry with all four – missing the two oldest who are in college – best birthday among

the cousins celebrating by a road trip with Debby and Sarah into Washington D.C. to the city ZOO!

ME – I GOT TO HANG WITH MARLEY!

PAPA’S WORLD livinglifedoingitmyway.blog

Papa’s World – we had AIRLINE vouchers to use – flying back home to NVA – parents gone – watching grandkids

CASSIDY BODE TAYLOR 3 little grandkids!

Before the Pandemic hit – we were flying to Phoenix for a health conference – then it was canceled –

So we have had all this money tied up in two vouchers!

Fast forward – “Why not use part of them for flying back to NVA – instead of driving – to watch over the kids!”

Their parents had a out of state ( Vermont) family wedding – no children – adults only – and we said yes –

we would come up for the long weekend – and stay with them and the new puppy – MARLEY!

MASKS ARE REQUIRED IN THE AIRPORT AND PLANE THE ENTIRE TIME – I HAVE NO PROBLEM WITH THAT!

We had to arrive early at North Myrtle Beach International airport – and there in was a problem.

The week before we had taken our drivers test ( stressed out for two months) for N.C.

Hint for drivers test – study all the signs and know what they are for even if they are blank!

There are special shapes!

And we passed – new drivers license ( paper form) and real ID to come in the mail.

We put our VA. license away ( mistake number one) and our new paper ID in our wallets.

(mistake number two) Keep both of them until in the mail you get the hard real ID!

Even though we had TSA clearence – we had to go thru as if we were fakes and maybe

causing a problem – which meant everything had to be searched( I had no problem with this)

and mistake number three ( take your passports when flying)!

All of that could of been avoided – it was our own fault – but we made it only to worry ( STRESS)

the return from NVA through a much bigger ( DULLES) and more stringent examination due to the fact

that the agent was training a new agent! ( NO PROBLEM WITH THAT!)

And yes it was stressful but we made it!

Waiting at MYRTLE BEACH INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT FOR OUR FLIGHT ON AMERICAN AIRLINES!
It all worked out and now I can laugh at it!

Just a senior moment – we knew better but hey – we are old and sometimes not as organized as we used to be!

But – we arrived – our daughter picked us up and we were on our way to their house – the grandkids and MARLEY!

MARLEY and CASSIDY – the new puppy and one of the twin girls – fraternal twins!

This was the beginning of a six day stay – two days with the parents – leaving and coming back –

and four days with grandkids and the puppy – a GOLDENDOODLE – who is going to be very large!

But – in our senior wisdom – we had plans to keep them busy and with these three –

it is when you get done “PAPA – when are we going to do the next thing”?

They are busy all the time except when on IPAD’S or BODE asking for my phone!

Then it is complete silence – except MARLEY who as a puppy gets into everything!

All has to be put up out of reach but she is really good – goes to the door when she wants out –

and plays run and hide and stay out of reach when you try to catch her to bring her in –

towel off her extra big feet – I found holding dog food and saying treat she would come! LOL

Taylor – who is on her way to being six feet tall – 11 years old – Bode – who never stays still except on my phone – Marley who is only six months old and is going to be huge – and Cassidy – who although shorter – is right on spot being a 11 year old!

Taylor is the quiet one of the three – always doing what told – and is the one who tkaes full care of Marley.

She is a sweetheart – sometimes you do not even know she is around!

BODE is in motion all the time – all boy and in the dead of winter – no socks and no shoes and outside!

Soccer – riding bike – golfing with his father – smart and outgoing – but can be a handful!

Cassidy – sweet – does crafts all the time – loves her MORMOR( Sherry) and calls and zooms all the time.

She takes after Sherry and is by her side all the time.

It broke my heart when it was time to leave – she came out for the third time to say goodbye –

hugs and asking when we will see her again –

then as we are pulling out to go to the airport – inside the garage standing on the step –

peeking out to us so she could see us leave – so lonely – and not wanting us to leave!

She misses us more than the other two!

Papa’s World – our Leesburg family – little ones – mother & father and now Marley!

Marcus – Cassidy – Tammy – baby Bode – Taylor THE KROHNS!

They now live just outside of Leesburg Va. about 30 minutes from where we used to live.

Whenever we do go home – we have a bedroom and bath in the basement – along with a suite of other rooms.

There is a walk out to the fenced in back yard.

Out there is a fire pit – huge patio and a pergola – multiple chairs and some rockers and a outdoor table and chairs we left behind.

A Boce court that was there when they bought the house – really beautiful setting!

The back yard fountain next to the patio and fire pit.

Now – there is a new addition – MARLEY – the goldendoodle – Tammy’s dog – that she wanted – a big dog to walk!

Marley and Tammy – waiting for the storm to roll in!

She has always wanted a dog – but it had to be THE DOG!

The kids love her – Taylor has a way with her as she does with horses!

She – Marley – has now become a major part of the family! Here – she sits looking at the neighbors Mastiff – she runs over and they race back and forth on each owns side of the fence.
Marcus has now taken up cross country on his bicycle – going 89 miles through hills – gravel roads etc. in a race with other’s – finishing well up in the pack for his first race!

Papa’s World – Star Wars – Hollywood Studio – Disney – a dream come true!

Outside the entrance to Hollywood studio’s – where we took Ella for her 16th. birthday present.

She opened the envelope at her birthday party in July!

There was a picture of Star Wars and the attraction in Florida at Disney World.

“You will spend one week with grandma and grandpa in Florida!

You will ride down with them at the end of Jan.

and go to Holly Wood studios to see Star Wars

and at the end of the week – for the first time ever

They will put you on a plane and you will FLY back home!

Bode – who his World is Ella – and she is so good to him.

We had done something special for Maddy when she turned 16.

Her wish was to be able to swim with the Manatee’s!

So – in the winter – she and her mom flew down –

and she did just that – and then we all drove back home!

Ella – her little buddy is Bode

He follows her everywhere and she just laughs!

She is so good to him and when she goes to college next year

She wants to become a Phys Ed teacher to the little ones!

She will be excellent – so kind – so much of a good heart.

And a very good soccer player.

We spent the time touring with her also – showing her where my brother lived

and the three town centers of The Villages!

Brownwood of the villages.

We went to see the Manatees and the beach on the West coast

We toured the town where we were staying – and stopped in the coffee shop

to get her a chocolate chip cookie each time – she loved that!

Soon it would be time for her to FLY!

Standing in line as we all watched – her forst time and she handled it like a pro.

Tears welled in my eyes –

my little Ella ( tiny) is what we called her

all grown up and out on her own.

Now – be careful – don’t mix with strange people I worried.

When she was small – she would always come to me – clutch my leg –

climb up into my lap.

I cherish those memories – “IS HE OKAY” she said to her mother

when I had my heart attack.

YES I HAD A LUMP IN MY THROAT

as I went from vantage point to vantage point watching her in the long line.

Ella and Sherry – a trip she will always remember.

Thank you for reading Papa’s World
